Packing up

Before my adventures begin around the world.  I must pack up what I plan to leave behind, or dispose of the things I no longer need.  Looking around me everything within the house I still currently live in all holds precious memories.  From articles of clothing to books or souvenirs from holidays.  Every object I...
