I Love to Travel, but Hate to Arrive #1

I am fevered with the sunset, I am fretful with the bay, for the wander-thirst is on me and my soul is in Cathay. Richard Hovey, A Sea Gypsy*

It's not only indoors I like wearing blankets. I absolutely adore trousers and skirt suits made from thick woolen materials and remember trying this one on in a little boutique in Berlin Kreuzberg. The designer, who happened to be in the shop thought the skirt was too wide for me and told me to come back the next day so she had time to change it. It was one of the first times in my life I consciously spent a lot of money on a garment I had fallen in love with and after she had changed the skirt it fit like a glove.

Yes, although the skirt is very short you pretty much need a Russian winter to wear this kind of material. But this is what we just had – And
not being able to leave the house doesn’t mean one can't dream of traveling…

The title isn’t true at all. I love to arrive, and though I love to travel, I normally dread the thought of having to get out of my lazy routine.

I love traveling too, and the arrival is always the best part! Especially if you actually have someone waiting for you at the airport... seeing them from far away, dumping your luggage on the ground to give them a hug, knowing you have so and so many days together until you have to go back home again. There's nothing better!

Moomby said...

that's one amazing coat! it's not itchy though?

The Haute-Shopper said...

I agree with kpeach... the traveling part is the worst, getting there is the only reason you put yourself through it. If I could beam myself to countries I would!

Beautiful jacket and skirt. Definitely something cosy for the winter months!
