D-2 ⏰ Remember the days you packed for a road trip holiday? Now it’s my turn to pack for about 6 months at sea! β›΅πŸŒŠπŸŒ It is important to put everything well organized on it’s place πŸ“‹ βœ… so that it’s easy for me to find the items later on.

Today we are β€œboarding” some food, my personal items πŸ‘•πŸ‘“πŸ’ΏπŸ“ such as clothes, multimedia equipment, medicine, first aid kit, emergency equipment, spare parts, tools … and of course some presents 🎁 from my family and friends 😊
