There is nothing like paying for an international move to motivate you to really edit your belongings. Right now I’m pulling out everything I own and deciding whether it’s worth the cost of shipping it overseas. And I’m facing the fact that there was no reason for me to hang on to all those pads of weird art paper left over from college. I will never again use Duraline, acetate sheets, or 19 x 24 layout bond (especially now that it’s so yellow). But I’m keeping the Vidalon!
So while I’m busy doing material possession triage, you can do a little armchair traveling to Zurich:
