Thoughts on coming home after a year of travel


A small collection of thoughts I've had since coming home at the end of January, ranging from the minute I got home to the present day.

*
When I walked through the door my four crazy dogs came running up to me and they remembered me. After 13 months away.
*
Coming home to a pregnant Sister and seeing her bump for the first time was so surreal. There was a real little person growing inside her, I wasn't just being Punk'd by my entire family.
*
I spent the first week of my home coming lost in limbo. Even when I was awake I felt like I was asleep, like everything was surrounded in fog. Probably the jet lag. Definitely the jet lag.
*
Our friends are the same yet so different. Things have happened whilst we have been away that we know nothing about. New friendships have been forged and some relationships have disintegrated.
*
Do I really want to be stuck in this job, in the 9-5 grind forever? Should I have maybe gritted my teeth and done my 88 days of farmwork? Did we make a mistake coming home?
*
Saving for the future is hard and it is boooooring. Can I not just use my savings to book a mini break to Rome or spend it on a month long adventure in New Zealand?
*
I don't want to bore everyone by talking about my travelling but at the same time it's all I want to talk about.
*
It's hard to believe that this time last year I was living in Perth and exploring everything WA had to offer. Life has soon gone back to normal, my time in Australia feels a bit like a dream.
*
At the moment I'm pretty happy. I have a niece, my savings look good and I have a trip to Norway planned for January aswell as a lot of gigs and festivals within the UK. Every now and again I have off days where I wish I'd carried on travelling but I'm happy to be back home.
*
Err what do I blog about now?
*
One thing I know for sure is that the travel bug never really leaves you. I may be taking the year to stay in one place but I still want to see everything.
