I just got back. The laundry is in a pile, the bags are rudimentarily unpacked (i.e. clean stuff is scattered about on one side of the bed), the effects of lack of sleep have largely abated, my cat has acknowledged my return, and my photos are downloaded to my computer.
When I left my companions, most of them said that they weren’t planning their next vacation to be a cycling trip. Of course they are British, so they said things like, “I’ll not be on another cycling holiday soon.”
I didn’t make any pronouncements. Whether or not I take another cycling holiday really comes down to health and fitness. If the leg feels better and I can cycling without terrible foot cramps, I would love to take another cycling holiday. Of course, money is another issue entirely.
Call it fate, call it coincidence, call it whatever you want, but I checked the mailbox on the day I arrived home and the catalogue for Exodus’ cycling trips for 2018 was waiting for me.
Call it vacation mentality, but whenever I get back from a vacation, I am supercharged to keep going. I want to take another vacation. I want to keep up the momentum. A body in motion wants to stay in motion, a body at rests, wants to stay at rest.
Laos is looking pretty good. Costa Rica is looking good, Chile and Argentina are looking amazing…..I could basically say they all look good.
The bags are rudimentarily unpacked. If I did my laundry, they could be repacked rather quickly….
