Every time I am about to go on a trip, I am a bundle of nerves and so high on adrenaline that I don’t need caffeine ha ha. I am functioning on little sleep but finishing chores, planning,
over analyzing and running around like an energizer Duracell bunny.
I don’t like leaving things half done before I go on leave, so I try to clear up as much stuff as I can. This time as I was returning only after the new year, I felt I had to close everything because it would be the new year by the time I am back.
I am often worried that I might forget something for the trip. Logically, I shouldn’t but I still worry. I was all nervous that I would forget some cosmetics before my trip to USA which is ironic considering that I get so much of my stuff from USA. It is not like I am travelling to some far flung deserted place with no access to modern shops. I am almost always in a city/town and I usually do not have issues finding stuff I (may) have forgotten to bring.
Every single time we travel, we vow to travel with less but I don’t know how we always end up lugging large suitcases full of stuff. So much for minimalism 😀
Somehow or the other, my flights end being at odd times like 4AM, so we ended up being in the airport by 10PM this time.
Strangely, stuff I am not nervous about include –
- Something happening to the flight I am in
- Immigration checks
- My luggage getting lost
- Passing the customs
- Having to wait a long time at the luggage belt to collect my stuff
which is often many people are worried about!
Do you have pre travel jitters?
