Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I was homeless for 4 years on and off when I was younger and got used to living with the minimum possible, with my stuff all being stored in a friend's loft. A few years later I went to get all that stuff back, I hadn't missed any of it.  I wouldn't be afraid to have to start all over again with nothing, it's an opportunity more than a loss, because I don't value 'things' in the way that so many others do.

Great comments In Wales.  We really don't learn how little the "extras" matter until we give them up.  I am sad to say that after many years living on the road, I never learned to pack as lightly as I wished.  Now we live part of the year in a 3600 sq ft house and the rest in a 400 sq ft apt.  I think we are usually happier with the 400 sq ft.
