How do you get over coming home blues. I just got back on Friday after traveling Australia and Fiji for 5 months and I am having a really tough time being home, feel like I am back into the same rut as I left. I quit my job when I left and never went to uni so right now I am trying to figure out what to go back to school for but all I can think about is traveling. When I left home I had no close friends besides my family and the town I lived in was really boring and majority of the people who live where I live are older and married with kids.

When I left for home in a way it was nice to come home to your own bed and stuff but now being home I hate it. I got a work visa when I first went to Australia but never used it, and now I am thinking I should go back there cause I had more friends there then I ever did at home. But eventually I would have to come home anyways and might be in the same situation as I am in now, but I am 24 now so why not do it when your young, and I never came home cause I was short on cash just cause I saw most of what I wanted to see. Any ideas ;-)

It can be a bit depressing coming home, my advice. Think of all the good times you've had the great places and people you've met and all the great memories you picked up along the way. Most of all be greatful for the opportunity and experience of travelling not many get the chance.

What does your family say? Maybe you just need a plan. ;)
