Rain, bikini-body, and container-obsession | Day 194 of my 2023 Journal

We found a campervan park at a harbor in Holland. It was full of roses and other flowers, someone attended them beautifully, harbors are always beautiful, and on top of all that, there was a special treat: The view to a container facility, where I could obsess over worldwide logistics and the moving systems of vast chunks of stuff.

Moving On

Moving on | Day 192 of my 2023 Journal

The zero-day | Day 185 of my 2023 Journal

One of the significant advantages of the nomad lifestyle is scarcity. It keeps us awake. The fact we are not staying long anywhere makes it always urgent to prioritize and do what is the most important always. We can not fool ourselves; we have to do what is on top of the list.
