几个星期前,我从朋友A家搬去朋友B家。

因为朋友A要去南美洲旅行了,而且也不便住得太久。

把两个旅行箱一提,很容易地就搬到了朋友B家。

这两个旅行箱 :一个装衣物和日常用具,另一个装课本和文具。

重量共不超过三十公斤。

在朋友A家住很像一家人。她父母把我照顾得无微不至。我天天有住家饭吃。

在朋友B家住很方便。

她的公寓就在市中心。搭个电梯到楼下,就什么商店餐馆咖啡室都有。

5至10分钟就可走到图书馆。这正适合我苦读的日子。

现在,考试过了,正适合我泡咖啡店的日子。

知道我只在墨尔本几个月,这些朋友不但不肯收房租,还处处照顾我。

心中很感激。

其实,有时也会厌倦这种居无定所的流浪式生活。

可往积极一方面想,这种两个旅行箱的日子却也很简单,很方便。

衣服就那几件,出门前不用多想,有什么穿什么。

反正就要离开墨尔本了,日常用品就只是需要的。

没什么多余的,也没什么需求。

少需求,就少烦恼。

这种生活,还不错。

I had moved from friend A’s house to friend B’s apartment unit a few weeks ago. Friend A was going to South America for holiday and I was not too comfortable to stay too long anyway.

I packed up my two suicases – clothings and daily necessities in one suitcase, books in another, then I was off to another place. It was so easy and the total weight of two suitcases is less than 30kg.

Staying with friend A, I was looked after well and had home-cooked meals everyday. Staying with friend B, I have all the convenience. Her apartment unit is located at the central of the city. Restaurants, cafes, shops are all within 5 to 10 minutes walks. Library is also nearby which was perfect for the exam period. Since all the exams are over now, it is perfect for my cafe lifestyle.

My friends not only refused rental money from me, they are also very supportive and helpful whenever I need them. There is no words could express my appreciation to them.

Frankly, sometimes, I am quite tired of this nomad lifestyle. However, thinking positively, it is such simple life that has no material desires. I only have very little amount of clothing, I don’t have to worry what to wear but only wear what is available. All I have are necessities for daily life, eg toothpaste, shampoo, etc. No excess, no waste and no desire for anything else, since I am leaving here soon anyway.

When I have less desires, I have less worries. And I don’t mind such simple life – a life with two suitcases only.
