Leaving on a jet plane

For better or for worse Turkey is done.

I have learnt so much that I wasn’t prepared to learn. I came over with 80kgs and I’m going back with 20. I have given everything I own away and it makes me feel naked. However, I think it’s time to embrace this naked feeling of little possessions. If I stop buying so much stuff then I wouldn’t have to give it all away or throw it out each time I leave a country. Part of me is very happy though that I no longer have that dress with a small tear in it or those shoes with the scuff marks. I can properly start afresh once again. My life is a constant circle of starting afresh every few months and I don’t know if I’m prepared to give that up quite yet. This will however be the first time in my life I’ve only had one suitcase at the airport. I’m getting better at this whole travelling thing. Some days I hate it and other days I couldn’t imagine my life without it.
