So you are reading a chapter, the book is amazing, but you have to put your book down to get back to the real world for a while… Frustrating right?! Well alas, it is the real world and only a lucky few get to make their living travelling – all great adventures have to come to an end (or perhaps just a pause.)
I’m sure I’m not alone in feeling the ‘travel blues’ from time to time – an adjustment process from an exhilarating life of travel to a life of mortgages, work, food shopping and life admin! We miss the freedom travel affords us, a whirlwind of life changing experiences day after day. The piles of washing, restocking the food cupboards and sifting through the mountain of unread mail are mundane tasks by comparison but necessary. It’s no surprise this can make us feel a little lost or disappointed! But there are ways to make this transition a happier process (I’ve actually loved my first week back) and I will share these tips with you now!
