Just back home after traveling for a year and its really starting to sink in, that same old feeling same thing every day waking up for work at the same time day in day out!!!. And back in Scotland of all places absoultly freezing compared to mainly oz!! Oh to be away again!! Going to have to start saving!!
After travelling I always have the excitement of seeing family and friends back home again last for about a few days.....then I'm like "oh, is this it??". Don't get me wrong, I love my home-life, but I love travelling just that bit more Right now I'm at home (NZ), saving for a trip of several months that starts in June
I know all about the post-travel blues!
As you say, it's good for about a week, catching up with friends and family, but getting back into the day-to-day routine is such hard work, and then having the trouble of looking for a job and sorting out accommodation is a nightmare.
I am due to go on my second round of travels in 4.5 months (sorry, dont mean to rub it in, but very excited) and i know it is along way off, but the idea of coming back to this country (which in my opinion is starting to go down the pan!) gives me anxiety.
I am currently looking into actually moving out to New Zealand and finding full time employment in my field once i have finished my travels.
And, I want to go there! But darn, no way in hell am going to manage to get a work permit in the UK (that too with an Indian passport )
