I'm about to head off on a little road trip. The kids are with their Dad for a few days and I have no work commitments for the next three days so I am taking advantage. I plan to meander around the Southern Highlands, then head down through the Kangaroo Valley until I hit the coast, then gradually wind my way back home.
I don't enjoy packing but at least my hobby is easy to pack. A pad of letter-writing paper, matching envelopes and a nice pen, and I'm done. Of course, I could take a few extra bits and pieces if I want to, but I don't really need to. In fact, if I wanted to keep it really simple, I could just take a pen and my address book and pick up postcards on the way. I'm sure I will do that anyway!
If the weather is good then I might write some letters in scenic spots - in a park, on a bushwalk, sitting on the beach. So easy and simple! Imagine if my hobby was furniture making? Not sure you can take that one with you!
I'm also hoping to discover lots of little letter-writing goodies in op shops, craft stores, etc. Hmmm, my bags might be a bit fuller coming home...
