It’s time to go home from that enjoyable second Euro-trip. You have to admit you do miss your home and you’d like to come home knowing where your toaster and coffee-maker are located immediately.
It’s a nice feeling to sit in the house and watch television on your favourite chair with coffee. But a few hours later, you’re dreading having to return to work on Monday. You’re also dreading the fact that you just left Europe and it’s sinking in.
You have the post-travel depression, my friend.
Basically, it’s depression wherein you don’t miss your travel location, but you’d like to stick around more for some reason.
Sometimes, you’re sick of the travel location but you couldn’t find satisfaction in your local residence because well, you know every corner of the street and where the grouchy elderly man lives.
It’s because you’re comparing your trip abroad to your own residence. It’s not really a bad thing, but it’s not beneficial either.
We loved the randomness of our travels. We loved the idea that we could quickly go to almost anywhere we want without much trouble.
So, instead of murking about how predictable your life is back here at home, think about how to spice things up.
Don’t plan things, even when going to work. Work as slow as you can. Play the music of which country you miss. Look at photos daily. Merge your travels with your regular lives.
Of course, that’s not all. Store those memories, but always keep on making new ones. Travel all you want, explore the vicinity of your home, town or city whenever you have time. Have a sense of adventure and look for everything that you haven’t seen before!
