I guess I could've tried to cram everything into a carry-on but I decided not to bother. I have one check-in bag and my backpack. Not so bad. What really adds to the weight is all the work materials I have to bring, like the laptop + accessories. Happily I have all the stories from the last d/g fic exchange - a guilty pleasure, but a pleasure nonetheless.
I don't think it's really going to hit me (like it ever does) until I'm on the plane: I'M GOING TO BANGKOK.
(I notice that every time I go on a trip I always write the same kind of pre-trip post. I promise to change for next time.)
