Going Home

“Too much of anything is bad, but too much of a good time is barely enough.”

I had my flight back home to England confirmed last evening.  I leave this pretty, (and pretty weird), island at 15:55 tomorrow, arriving back in my local airport at 20:10.  So, I should be back in the garret at about half-past-nine tomorrow evening.

I enjoy being a solitary tourist, Lanzerote is cool, and the group of fellow solitary travellers I’m with are friendly, but something has gone a little bit wrong on this vacation. Perhaps I’ve had too much time to think, or too much sun, or I’ve had too many vacations this year…..  Whatever it is I am going to be leaving here feeling uneasy, dissatisfied, and anxious.  Which is not the point of a sunshine vacation at all.

Some say that you can get too much of a good thing.  And, that wherever you go you take yourself with you.  All I know is that I’m going to be glad to be home again.

  1. Hugs Jack! Big hugs, and I’m so sorry your vacation didn’t leave you feeling relaxed and happy. I’m probably overstepping, but I wonder if perhaps what you lack these days is focus … something that you’re passionate about, some project that makes you feel invested? Just a thought. Hugs! ❤

    1. Jill, you are damn right.
      Too much unfocused fun stops being fun.
      I think I’ll start a new regime in the new year, and that gives me a few days to plan.
      Hugs Sweetheart. ❤ ❤ ❤
