The beauty of seeing Europe before leaving for Taiwan

On the road

In the beginning of the month I officially left Düsseldorf, although to be honest  I left already a long time ago, having been on the road for the majority of the time since I went to Champagne middle of May. But I am not in Taiwan yet, I am travelling Europe. 

It is wonderful to see Europe, of course, however the wandering around Europe with occasional stop-overs to say hi to friends and sort the last bits out in Düsseldorf has been very good for me in many ways, not the least from a cleaning-out perspective. Every time I have stopped by I have also stopped by my former home to get rid of things, and every time I have done so, I have gotten rid of things I the last time I was over decided I was going to save, either to take with me, to put into storage or leave with friends until I can pick them up. Now I keep thinking "do I really need this" - and I have managed to get rid of a lot. I still have a lot of things but nowhere near what I had before. 

And the charity organisations are hopefully happy too... 

Can someone explain why we humans are such pack rats? And yet I am far from the worst I have seen...

And soon I am wandering off again...
