It is funny how life is,about a month ago I was extremely excited about the trip I was going to take in less than a few days time and and now,a few days after I have returned home I am plagued with a serious case of post-holiday blues. My holiday was most wonderful and I was privileged to visit one of the most beautiful places in India, but my mood shifted so suddenly from elation to gloominess as soon as I stepped off the plane at Bangalore that it even took me by surprise. Sure, I knew I would be slightly depressed but I did not think it would hit me that hard. The truth is, I always feel like this after a trip but I think it was so much worse this time because this was one of the longest trips I had been on. And yes, the fact that I was finally starting work after taking a whole year off was a major contributor too. It took a while for me to recover from my post-holiday illness which had me taking to my bed for two days but after a week or so I was back to myself thankfully! I do feel a twinge of sadness now and again when I think of my most amazing trip but what keeps me going is that as I sit here typing this I have already started planning my next trip(which is hopefully soon!).
