Holidays are a minimalist time.
I need a hotel room that has a bed and a shower. The hotel room I sleep in is cleaned and maintained by someone else. When I check out, I am unconcerned about what happens to the room.
I have everything budgeted, so I am happy that I am spending money on things that will fulfil me.
I only take with me what I think I need. I carry nothing superfluous.
I have limited internet access, so I have few distractions. I focus better. I am more present.
I plan my day, but I want to achieve little.
I want to walk.
I want to photograph.
I want to read.
I want to have long conversations with my wife.
These happen easily and deliberately.
Minimalism lets me be on holiday at home.
