I’ve been back at work for three weeks now, after a wonderful holiday in Norway. I caught myself having a bit of post-travel blues.
It’s been a rocky few months and my Norwegian adventure couldn’t have been timed better. I enjoyed catching up with my Norwegian friend, who visited me in the Netherlands last year. I gladly returned the favour by coming over to visit her and we had a blast! I also had very sore muscles from all those hikes, whilst having a big smile of feeling accomplished. I instantly fell in love with Norway’s absolutely stunning nature. So much space and so little people, which is hard to grasp when you’re from an overpopulated country like I am. I loved it. I found it incredible to realise that such a beautiful country exists only a short flight away.
Whilst back in the office, or at home even, I find my mind wandering, reminiscing outdoor adventures and long summer days spent doing whatever. This blogpost is a prime example of trying to keep that feeling alive as long as I can. I just realised, my entire blog is a way for me to keep post-travel blues as far away as possible! I suppose it was the reason I started blogging in the first place. Revelation! 🙂
Don’t we all experience that wonderful carefree feeling when we travel? Don’t we all have a little bit of trouble getting back into the groove of adult life after wonderful adventures on exciting destinations, no matter how awesome our jobs may be? It may take a little time, especially when the feeling of travelling freedom doesn’t want to leave us juuust yet. Maybe we just deal with it and put in the hours to save up for a new adventure!
Do you experience post-travel blues? What do you do to get back into the groove of daily work life? Anything you do to try and hold onto that ‘travel feeling’?
