or ‘we love airports, part 46’ by suzy
listening to cat power and m.ward and bonnie prince billy, etc, and other loves, etc. and PACKING. half assed packing. doing overdue laundry really and finally UN-packing some suitcases brought home from the east coast.
[ ‘i hope you get yourself together soon! i HOPE you GET YOURSELF togetherrrr sooooon!’
current awesome lyric in an awesome song called vincent o’brian by m. ward. ]
im throwing some dresses and tank tops in a pile. im going to bali with a photographer. im not seeing if any of the outfits make sense. honestly, i hope to just buy two or so there and wear them the whole time. trip was confirmed yesterday and im flying out on sunday. just the way i like it. makes it a bit more exciting, to have such a short time to get realllly excited about it all in.
flying china air which sounds terrifying. but im sure it will be fine.
thought i was going to have a 9 hour layover or something nuts in singapore, but instead its 3 hours in taipei. maybe i can buy something that is made in tiawan there !
staying in a villa in seminyak, which sounds like the part of bali where rich europeans stay, which is ok with me. i either want authenticity or beautiful luxurious surroundings while traveling, but never touristy kitch. so while i def hope to see a lot of authentic parts of indonesia, its fine with me to stay in a villa in the trendy expensive part of the country. especially if i am not paying!
spas, cool bars, and hip boutiques seem to populate this part of bali. so, hopefully i will drink some new types of drinks, eat some new kinds of food, come back with a nice piece of fabric that looks great on me, and get a lot of massages.
>>> oh, and to rediscover a newfound love and appreciation for life. bc thats my main reason for jetsetting all over this great grand world of ours. and it never seems to fail me. ❤
