Hello everyone! After 18 days away (a glorious 2 weeks of them on honeymoon) Sam and I are safely sequestered back in York. I can’t wait to share so many aspects of our Thai travel with you. It’s a bit strange to be back from honeymoon because whilst we still had our honeymoon ahead of us, our wedding didn’t really feel over. It truly was the adventure of a lifetime and I spent nearly the entire flight home wishing that we weren’t going home. I have so many posts about Thailand forming themselves in my mind, but I’ll spread them out over the upcoming weeks so that my readers don’t go into Thailand overload.
But we are returning extremely relaxed, with pretty deep tans and my hair having gone blonde. (If only I were able to keep this tan till summertime!)
I’ve affected by SAD and I’ve always known that the more sun I get the happier I am, and the solid week of 32 C (90 F) temperatures totally confirmed the fact that we need to move somewhere sunny one day. I have a load of laundry on (full of shorts and tank tops and other things that will get immediately packed away once they are dry) and we’ve both been working again already so the post-holiday blues are in full-swing. You have probably noticed but I’m most definitely not a luxury blogger (the idea of having remotely enough funds to ever fly first class is laughable) and 2 week holidays abroad are not a yearly occurrence with us. I may have had a little cry a) over the fact that we probably won’t have another holiday like this in a very long time and b) that we were returning to England in the dead of winter.
But these are truly first world problems. America basically imploded whilst we were away and we kept abreast of the news via twitter (we only had 1 English news channel and coverage was a bit filtered). I was able to attend the anti-Trump protest at Downing Street last night before returning to York and the turn-out was so inspiring.
Apologies- this very rambley post is courtesy of my 4 am wake up today. Thanks jet lag. This boils down to: Hi readers! I’m back! Thanks for those of you who followed along on instagram and twitter in my absence from this space.
