Coming home after a trip
The most difficult thing about traveling is coming home. Especially getting used to the routine and the weather are the most difficult. Life just went on and no one is waiting for someone full of stories about events far away. What was fun and funny along the way may not be understandable at home with those who stay at home.
Back from Australia and New Zealand as walking the Camino Portugues I had a lot of trouble hooking into everyday life, especially mentally.
At the Camino I was mainly busy with myself, walking, eating and sleeping. And then you are suddenly back and everyday things turn out to be bigger. I was actually not finished with my reflections after walking the Camino. Therefore, I stayed for 6 months somewhere in between the Camino and home, instead of picking up life again.
What did work out were small changes that you bring into your daily habits to maintain in your daily life while traveling, such as working no more than 5 hours a day and then taking a walk. The latter is unfortunately now worn out again, but I am busy building that in the routine again.
