Back to reality

Hello everyone, I am back. I apologise for not blogging much for the last 4 weeks as I was very busy. Anyway I have been back for more than 72 hours now and all I have been doing is lots of sleeping. I am not sure which clock my body is following but all I did for the first 24 hours after I got back seemed to be just sleeping.

We landed in Sydney airport and were welcomed by cold and rainy winter. It took a while to clear immigration and customs. As soon as we got into the cab, me and my husband looked at each other and said to each other “Welcome back to the real world.”

I have to admit the best thing about being back home is my warm bed since I have been spending the most time in it. As soon as we got back home, we dumped our suitcases and went to sleep. Even though I had some sleep on the flight (it was 7 hours flight + 4 hours transit + 14 more hours of flight), my body was begging for rest.

So we went to sleep for 6 hours straight. When we woke up both of us were hungry so we ordered a take away and watched TV for a while. As soon as we ate, we felt tired again and off to bed for another 6 hours. We woke up again, talked to our parents to let them know we were back, went for a quick grocery shopping (the fridge was empty) and had our dinner.

AS was working the next day so he had to sleep on time and so we went to bed around 10:30 but even after 2 hours I couldn’t fall asleep so I got up and started surfing the internet. It was probably afternoon in Paris at that time 🙂 Lucky me I had the next day off.

Previously I had gone to work straight from the airport after 16 hours fight from my holiday in USA but this time I am so tired that I am glad that I have an extra day off to rest.

That morning I went to bed around 5 am and woke up at 1 pm. I have never been able to sleep till so late but that morning I didn’t even hear AS leave for work. I was so tired that after I got up at 1 pm just had my breakfast and sat in front of the TV until AS came back from work. I was really dreading going to work the next day.

Anyway, my holiday went exactly as planned and we went to Dubai- Sharjah -Ajman – Brighton –  Devil’s Dyke – Winsor -Wiltshire – Stonehenge – Bath – London – Calais – Holland – Brussels – Frankfurt – Rhine River –  Sankt Goar –  Wurzburg –  Velden – Nuremberg – Prague – Bohemia – Moravia –  Vienna –  Styrian Alps – Venice – Burano – Venetian Lagoon –  Assisi – Rome – Vatican city  – Florence – Como – Lugano – Basel – Flüelen  – Mt.Titlis – Engelberg – Lucern – Danube Valley –  Lake Worth and Carinthia – Paris – Versailles.

There are lots of stories I want to share with you (I have lots of drafts that I wrote on plane and the coach) and it will take me months to do so. This post is to let you all know that I am back and I am still writing 🙂 Thanks everyone for bearing with my absence.
