Although I loved the freedom of being in a completely different city all by myself, I constantly longed to be home again for the holidays. The days leading up to my departure were pure torture in my eyes just knowing that I'd soon be home, but I was still so far away. It's comforting to be in my old bed, in my old room, and to see all of my old friends again. But the one true thing that I despised about coming back was all of the packing.
Winter in Canada is harsh, if not harsher in Ottawa. The weather is not only cold, but extremely dry as well. In preparation for the torrid conditions, I tried my best to pack the warmest of the warm sweaters that I could find. Which would also entail lots of layering so that the looser knits wouldn't let in the draft. Sweaters, however, mean bulk. And bulk leads to wasted space in my luggage. Two weeks worth of clothes means that I'm in need of some smart packing. So I took on the challenge (obviously I'll need some space to bring back the Christmas goodies) and brought home enough pieces to layer differently, without taking up too much space. How do you pack for colder climates?
