Organizer (2) ー How to minimize your travel luggage

English, Español, Français, 日本語

The world became smaller and smaller and travelling is more accesible and/or necesary than ever (e.g. while 100 years ago (1914) traveling from London to New York took 5-10 days, nowadays it takes no more than 8 hours (interesting comparative map)

In other words, there are many people who have to think about what to bring in their trip. Although so many things can stay at home (that’s why people tend to clutter), in terms of travelling, we have to make a decision on luggage items and limit them, which is quite difficult, especially when you travel to somehwere you have never been.

Based on my experience as a backpacker (travelled more than 50 countries), I learned so many things including what (not) to take.

In that sense, as one of the ways to organize life, in this entry I would like to share some tips on how to decide what to take in a trip.

However, our energy has a limit and we cannot keep using. Let’s see the mechanism of work and energy, and how to live happily without burnout.

English, Español, Français, 日本語

Small dream came true!

As I wrote in my previous entry (Mauritania 1ーLife turning point) coming to Africa was my small dream, and I heard about Senegal being famous for my favorite culture: music, dance, food, fashion, history, etc.

Although it was there for job purpose, I travelled one day before to get to know a bit of  Dakar, the capital of Senegal. I would say I could achieve most of what tourists would do in this city, about which I would like to share in this entry.

Things to do in MoroccoーBullet TravelーVisit 5 main cities in 4.5 days

English, Español, Français, 日本語

When I was a backpacker (10-15 years ago), I didn’t want to visit the same country I already went, as i wanted to know other contexts as much as possible. However, the more I travelled, the more I realized that it is quite difficult to generalize a country as each city, and sometimes each village has something different.

That’s why I decided to travel Morocco (where I went once) and managed to visit 5 major cities although I just had 4.5 days of vacation.
