mentally on holiday already, but there’s 4 more days to go… it’s tough…

Same time frame here. I tend to feel either what you do, or I feel annoyed that I don’t have time to wrap things up properly. Loads of stuff popping up, and people are asking me because everyone else is on holidays, so I’m dreading leaving a mess of threads behind.

I am attending a wedding reception on Saturday. It’s a relatively lowkey event. My friend who lives all over the world—but originally from Denmark—is in town and wants to have a reception in his home country with his friends over here. They asked not to get any presents that take up space in their luggage, so what do you give them…?

If they live in apartments on their travels, and they drink coffe, a Bialetti (or the Alessi I posted) We tend to “always” bring one of those when travelling.

Also, gift card to some experience could be nice, but that's harder since it's often bound to both time and place, and your friend is not?

Maybe just some money (cash or a prepaid card) in a fancy envelope that says ‘treat yourself’ on it?

I think I got it already. I’ve only met her twice, but he is—despite flying all the damn time—a bleeding hearts tree hugger, who went vegan for the climate and is aiming to live a CO2 negative lifestyle, so I think I’m gonna pay for trees to be planted and get them some kind of certificate. It sucks that it’s mostly aimed it him, but hopefully she has similar values 🙂

@U4P4NREBY an open-ended plane ticket to come and visit you again. 🙂

simongray08:07:30

Any suggestions?

BTW, I'm not good morninging these days as I'm on vacation.

Cicadas are finally chirping in Athens. We were worried for a couple of weeks, but it turns out the long winter delayed their maturation. They won't shut up for some time now 🙂
