Post-holiday Blues

I've not been back long, but I'm already sad to not be on holiday any more... I was ready to be back in my own bed, and I'm excited about having moved into my new place, although a little daunted about the unpacking that must commence tomorrow... This place is quiet, which is good, but for the last 4 weeks I've been surrounded by my friends, and other travellers constantly, so sitting here, catching up on eastenders and nosing through facebook profiles of people at home, I can feel the start of holidays blues setting in. Travelling and living abroad gives you some tremendous highs, but with that you also have to take the lows; long delays in airports, strangers staring at you, getting ripped off, being robbed, this feeling afterwards when you crash back to reality, and it's only in those small moments that I feel a little envy for those people back home who are settled in their jobs, relationships and homes and take a couple of holidays a year but are comfortable in their settled lives. I have chosen this life for a reason though, and I know that tomorrow, when I find something weird or exciting in the local supermarket I'll be in love with my life once again!

New beginnings and my belongings sprawled across the floor!
