Daily Prompt: An Ounce of Home
You’re embarking on a year long round – the – world adventure, and can take only one small object with you to remind you of home. What do you bring along for the trip?
For a world trip you need someone close, to go with you and share the thrill, wonder, vistas you get to see. Another thing is which is too bad, I have become a creature of comfort. I can’t rough it now.
A year back, I left my own home to come here. I packed two bags. I couldn’t pick anything which required a large space. The two bags allowed were 23Kg each. Believe me , they filled up so quickly. After weighing them, I took most stuff out again. I left my laptop even. I couldn’t cope with the shoulder bag, and laptop bag together on my shoulder.
I brought memories with me, as they didn’t occupy space, and two photos.
The two photos were: one was of my husband alone, and the other one was a group photograph.
In it my husband, son, daughter and I are standing in front of the rockery. Even that is a memory now.
