Good morning my precious party people! It’s a sunday funday indeed when you’re waking up to pack for another adventure. This time I’m off to Bonarooville, Nashville. If you’re not familiar with the friendly festy circle, Bonaroo is an amazing annual music festival held in the outskirts of Nasville, TN. I’ve been around the block with a few fests in my So Cal circuit to say the least; Coachella, Outside Lands, Wanderlust, etc. But this, this will be the first time I head to another state to get down with the music loving crowd.
Another first for me will be travel without checking bags. Now, it seems like since I have circled the globe a bit, I’d know something about the perks of packing light. But the truth is, I don’t.
I’ll be staying with a beautifully fun and fantastic friend of mine who we’ll call Miss Ash AKayA, without whom I wouldn’t be going to this grand event. I know I’ll be able to get what I need. I guess I’m wrestling with this idea that I won’t.
We are conditioned to think we NEED so much stuff, to come prepared for anything, and what that means is a grip of goods to keep us “safe” from whatever pops up; cuts, bruises, being bored. You name it, we pack for it.
This time I’ll keep it simple, trust that the universe will take care of all the silly details I think are sooo important, and leave the bogus baggage behind.
So… What to bring for a week of southern festy fun?
