Post Travel Depression – it hit me within 24 hours of my return. The overwhelming negativity that follows you around like a black cloud. The invisible lead weights that appear to be dragging your limbs down, with every step feeling like walking through water.

Then I started to hate everything – the house, the job, my life. Everything is shit. Why is everything so shit?

But, lets look at this rationally – things aren’t really that shit at all. I have a nice house, a nice partner, a nice job. It’s just the returning to that same stressful and monotonous life after an amazing month of Solo travel in Thailand that is the problem.

My post travel depression is then exacerbated by the UK Winter, SAD sets in along with the cold and dark evenings. Then I open my diary…..there are no more trips planned!

Well, actually, I feel you too as millions of people. But I do believe that things now are getting better and better. And at the moment, when I'm not able to travel just yet, I'm going on a picnic in the forest, and actually do like it! I also started to take pictures of nature, like the sunrise (even out of my window) or a beautiful leaf in the sunshine - it helps somehow to be connected with nature and feel better. Let's say not so desperate.
I'm happy to know more and more countries are getting open for people with a vaccine. So actually we could travel properly soon! Where would you go, actually?
