Why long term travel makes it difficult to come home
Have you ever travelled around the world and then struggled when coming to terms with being back home again?
Let me explain super quick exactly why I have never been able to return to a conventional lifestyle since travelling the world.
I am in Nairobi at this moment amd life is anything but comfortable.Animated and stimulating, it can almost feel like a video game some days. For them, this is just another normal day in Nairobi but for me, as I walk through these busy streets with a backpack and the appearance of a tortoise, it’s not hard to notice I’m the odd one out.
At the same time, it really is a case of “each to their own” because in the same way that this normality makes people happy, the uncertainty of my own road makes me feel alive.
I suspect that many people will find this hard to understand but this is why everything seems to fall into place when I travel and why everything starts to feel disjointed when I stay at home for too long.
Moral of the story: I still choosing a life of adventure over a world of normality.
