I will be heading to Tuscany tonight. After a few days of planning, packing, weighing, unpacking, packing again, I am happy with the 8.5kg (net, no water and food) result. Looking at it, I just noticed the label on that new backpack. How funny that I did not notice it before. Reminds me on one of my favorite quotes

Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away. (Antoine de Saint-Exupery)

Indeed, I did quite some clean up work in the past days, letting go many personal things that had been important once in my life but have no meaning today other than carrying memories. On the way to a minimalist but still 90% to go 🙂
