Returning back to your usual routine after a trip is one of the worst things ever – we’ve all been there! Getting back from your week in Spain at the weekend and being back in the office the next day. It sucks! The hardest it hit me was when I landed back in England after 6 weeks volunteering in Thailand. It was great seeing my family, but I had literally had the most eye-opening experience and I didn’t want it to end! But just like everything else in life, everything has it’s perks and it’s downers!
Perks of adjusting back to normal life
1. Probably the most obvious one. Seeing family and friends!
It’s always an amazing feeling being reunited with your loved ones!!
2. Editing photos
As a photographer, I get so excited to get on my laptop and look at everything i captured!
3. Telling the stories
I LOVE telling stories from my travels. I think I must talk about somewhere I’ve been, something I’ve done everyday. I love to hear other people’s stories of their travels, so I love to share mine.
4. Catching up with your new friends
I still talk to people from all over the world on a regular basis. Not every day, sometimes not every week, but I know they’re always there and we will always have something to talk about! It also means potential places to stay when I visit different countries too!
Literally my favourite thing to do. I love reflecting on life. Mainly because I am really proud of what I have achieved so far. I love being so aware of my surroundings and had the chance to see so much. I have visited 25 countries under the age of 23 and this makes me so happy. I have learnt a lot about myself and the world, and it’s only going to get better!
6. PLAN ANOTHER ADVENTURE
Planning a trip is just as exciting as getting on that plane!
