There are specific moments when I slow down, and realize how incredibly lucky I am. Arriving in Pula for Goulash Disko was one of them. After a workday, I went straight to the airport and flew to Pula where I hopped in a cab and drove to the small coast town of Stinjan. Within 15 minutes of arriving at the apartment, I was at the dinner table with old friends; Iva, Lina and Paulina enjoying a glass of wine and a home-cooked meal (thanks Lina!). This moment when I looked around the table and see friends who drove across Croatia on their motorcycle (Iva), flew in from Paris (Lina) and Barcelona (Paulina) and we raise a glass as if we were together last week, I feel like all I need is all that I already have.

It has almost become a ritual; packing up my things, cleaning the apartment, seeing who is available to give me a lift and driving across town to a ‘new’ spot. Although I have no furniture to lug around, it still always surprises me how many things I take from one place to the next. The highlight of the moves, yesterday no exception, is getting rid of some of my belongings. Things that I realize I have not used and do not need. The less I move with me, the more freedom I have to move around and the less things to worry about.
