I’ve seen there’s at least a few people on here who don’t have a permanent base and go from home to home. There’s a lot of ‘one bag’ travel sites and guides about really reducing your life to the minimum - some clothes, a laptop and a washbag is technically all you need really and you can fit it into a 40 litre rucksack.
My partner and I are considering a period of about a year where we wouldn’t have a base. I’m interested in what else you might need if you were away for that period. There’s a few things I’ve noticed that while I could do without, would be nice
- wrapping paper, scissors, sellotape - important for birthdays!
- formal wear for occasional weddings etc
- cooking - a few spices for barren cupboards, a couple of tupperwares, whatever fresh stuff might be left over from the last sit
- gear for hobbies - polymer clay doesn’t take up a lot of space, but it might squeeze something else out. Could be any hobby - fishing, hiking etc
I’m sure there are bunch more random things that make life easier, have only been considering this for a couple of days.
Do you just give these things up or do you find a way to make space? And where?
