The other thing I’ve always taken for granted about the suburbs is the kind of darkness that allows you to see the stars without all the light pollution. Soon I will tire of the suburbs though. With it’s too quiet streets and garages.
When I was on the road for three months, all I wanted was to go home wherever home was. But now all I wish is to be back on the road. I haven’t yet broken my habit of living out of my duffle bag which is why I have been living off the same five outfits despite having access to my entire wardrobe. I think one of the most important things you learn when you move overseas is what you can pack into one suitcase despite having more than ten suitcases worth of stuff.
