Back in January I made a decision to stop traveling every month like I have for the past three years. I love traveling and always will, but this year I'm aiming for big international trips instead of several domestic ones. Truth be told, I was getting burnt out, not from the actual traveling, but from all the tying loose ends before my trips and catching up when I returned home. The silly thing about that decision is that shortly after, I needed to travel for work continued traveling for work until April. Since then I've been home for a home and looks like I'll continue to be home for at least another month. It feels great. I've been really blessed this past month of April. I've been up to my ears in editing and shooting and couldn't be happier. Although I've done some sort of job or work-related event almost every day, I'm glad that I didn't have to squish it all in (like I normally do when I'm traveling).
It's funny, though, because people don't understand me when I say I'm taking a break from traveling. It's like they've gotten so used to me traveling that the concept of me not doing it stops them in their tracks. I suppose it's strange for me as well. Traveling became such an integral part of my life that even the blogger in me doesn't know what to write about if I'm not traveling. Photographing my life becomes more challenging as I'm not doing anything "interesting" anymore. But, still, it's those simple things I'm keeping an eye out for. Like the kitchen table... (below).
I'll still be blogging about my travels, but they will be backlogged from all the trips I haven't blogged yet. For now, enjoy my every day life. :)
