Start saving up right away, for your next trip.
And start thinking and fantasising about which places u can choose to go.

I think main two reasons that I got somewhat bored when I came back home to Sydney is firstly that it felt sooo far away from the rest of the world. I had travelled to London and Europe where you can hop into France, Belgium or whatever within a day whereas it would take about 24hours of flying (and a whole lot more money) to do that from Sydney.
And secondly, as everyone else here has noted, you learn so much about yourself when you travel - esp on your own - so when you come home you may not feel as worried about things you would have in the past.

But I got myself to a travel agent and collected brochures and browsing brochures calmed me hahhaha

I'm happier to be home now that the weather is warming up!
The weather makes a big difference I'm not sure if you guys would agree?

Yeah, but today's not to warm. I just went outside in the city and it's cool and windy. Clear skies though!

Oh yea its a tad nippy today! But at least the sky is blue.
I think the great thing about winter in Sydney that more often than not the sky is still bright blue so even though its cold you're not overly depressed! lol

So many cops around too!
Welcome George Bush =P

That brings me to why i posted on this thread!!! Anywhere away from home is new/exciting/challenging/DIFFERENT. Home is what you have grown up with for xx years and doesn't readily present any new challenges.

I have a house over here and a job that can be very stressful so even with all the same 'commitments' that i would have at home it never feels like it used to be in Aus. Living and working has more of a purpose here. The only time i felt like i was working for a reason back in Aus was the saving period for travelling over here!

Yeah, why is that? The littlest issues have been getting on top of me since I came home. I'm not usually like that, so my reaction to these little issues is becoming an issue (if you follow me )

Before I left home, I at least felt like I fitted here (or did I?......) Now, that I'm back, I dont feel like I fit anywhere exactly. Isn't that supposed to be a good thing?

I'm very confused

Well, I want to reply to this but not sure I have much to offer. Basically I travel all round europe with easyjet and Ryanair and it is soooo cheap. So just go do a few weekends away for a bit. travelling doesnt have to be to the other side of the world. (although I am just about to go Philippines, which IS the other side of the world!!). So basically because you live in Europe low cost travel is so affordable that you dont have to save up for long really. We in europe are SO lucky to have this luxury. So instead of going for a few drinks in the pub at £2:50 a pint, just book a flight with Ryanair for 20 quid somewhere in europe.
