Journey Back to Reality

Four flights. Three connections. Twenty-three and a half hours of airplane time. Seven and a half hours of layover time. Thirty-one total travel hours. Then, HOME SWEEET HOME!

First thing that I’m going to do is cuddle Hermes on the couch. Second thing that I’m going to do is sleep in my own bed with Hermes.

These are some things that I haven’t done in the past seven weeks:

  • Drive
  • Pet a cat
  • Laundry
  • Wash dishes/load dishwasher
  • Make a bed
  • Shop for groceries
  • Cook a meal
  • Eat a home-cooked meal
  • Send/receive text messages
  • Check my voicemail
  • Count calories
  • Pilates, Turbo-Kick, Zumba, work out more than 45 minutes (only hit the gym twice!)

We had a fantastic time. It was truly the best trip of our lives. Better than I expected. We shared so many fun experiences and memories. Seven weeks is a long time to be away from our lives, routines, and normalcy. It’s something that we probably won’t be doing again for a long time.

All good things must come to an end.

P.S. We still need to blog about Cape Town. Need a better Internet connection than what we’ve had in South Africa. To be continued…
