The Night before Traveling Home, Mixed Feelings

love to travel. I do. But going back home is always such a relief. Back to my white-bread world. My comfort zone.

But, let’s go one step back. The night before the flight, what will you be doing?

Packing. This time even worse than packing before traveling. Try to re-pack the clothes — or should I say dirty laundry! All clothes become thicker with wrinkle, so it’s almost impossible to pack them tidily.

Add also souvenirs. Scarf for mom, shirt for dad, T-shirts for brothers and sisters, chocolate for colleague, etc.

And you are still wondering why you need more bags?

After finish packing, you lay down in your hotel room. Thinking of many things.

Shit! I have an early meeting on Monday. And those reports… OH my God!

Holiday is over. Please, please, please don’t be over now, I don’t want to go back to work. (But then earth is calling: there will be no holiday without payday — I’m luckily exempted)

Then, you’ll be checking the calendar to see when will you get another holiday. Will the boss give you leave? What excuse you’ll use this time? Where to go? Do you have enough money?

Lastly, you’ll be checking promo tickets from your tablet or smartphone. Me, I missed the latest free seats promo. DUGH!
