This post is more of an observation after almost two weeks of traveling through Europe.
When you’re planning a multi-destination trip try and think ahead to how you’re likely to feel in the last days of said trip. You may want to plan so that your OK with your last destination being more laid-back.
The beginning of a trip is much different than the end, at least for me. Allow me to elaborate:
First Half of Trip
– Up bright and early every morning
-Make-up and hair is perfect
– I must see EVERYTHING
– Oh, look at that! Let me get my camera ready.
– Take a picture of me in front of this…and this….and this.
– Selfie time!
– Let’s do that again tomorrow!
Second Half Of Trip
– Let’s just sleep in this one time
– Pony-tail and lip gloss is good enough
– I really need to wash my socks, ugh.
– We can skip that. Maybe we can come back to it.
– Let’s just leave the camera. I can take pictures with my phone.
– If you take a picture of me I’ll kill you! Do you not see how puffy my eyes are?
The trick to the second half of your trip is moderation and simply powering through the fatigue. My last destination is London and while I’ve enjoyed sleeping in and having a lazy day (something that was unheard of during the first part of my trip) I’m also picking myself up and exploring the city. So off I go!!
Oh yeah, Happy New Year =)
