You pack your bags, head to the airport, and set off for the great unknown. No matter where you're going, you truly have no clue what destiny has in store for you. And that's the best thing about traveling. You leave behind your world and open your eyes to an infinite one. You break free from the humdrum of everyday life to see what lies on the other side. It's the experience of a lifetime — that is, until you forget to bring the one thing you can't leave behind while traveling, according to your zodiac sign. At that point, it becomes a nightmare, am I right?
You know how that goes. You pack every single thing except the one thing you know you'd go nuts without. Suddenly, your trip is not as exciting as you thought it would be. Suddenly, this trip has become all about survival. You're daydreaming of going right back home, back to where everything makes sense in the world. Everything feels off-kilter and you try to calm yourself down, but now you've got to totally rethink your perspective of this trip. Let this be a cautionary tale, because I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy. Allow me to remind you to pack the most important thing of all.
