Hello again, my patient readers I am officially back in Toronto & back to blogging!
My Thailand trip was amazing. It was the “find myself” adventure trip I wanted & I almost filled up my journal during the 28 days. I have a lot to share over the next while, but today I am jet lagged.
I’ve had jet lag before, but this is a special kind of jet lag. The kind you get when you go back 12 hours in time & travel for 20+ hours. I did stay awake until midnight yesterday & woke up at 6 am this morning. It was not easy not to fall asleep but I stayed awake by putting up a slide show of my 2,500+ pictures & videos for my mom & telling her a bit about my trip. The story telling was rudimentary as all I could manage to say was the location of the place I was at. I may have told some sort of story, but frankly I cannot remember – memory loss & lack of concentration are the symptoms of jet lag I seem to suffer from the most.
When I first got to Bangkok, I traveled to Koh Samed the next morning & I could not remember what street the National Stadium Sky Train was for the life of me. Normally I’m great at recalling directions from looking at a map, but I could not for the life of me remember on that day. I also, lost my camera lens cover that day. Lesson for me that day was that jet lag makes me dumb & I need to do very little that requires any mental effort.
So with that in mind, this first post will be short. I apologize for any grammatical or spelling errors as well, I will most likely find & correct them tomorrow. Today I couldn’t spot one if you gave me directions to it.
