It’s a warm rainy winter day here in Canada – yes you are reading that right!! Today hit a record temperature of 17 degrees Celsius!! Rained all day – but it felt good to not have to wear a heavy coat today! It was a blue feeling day though – I am missing Prague a lot lately. The beautiful sites, my friends, walking through the gorgeous scenery.
I know the feeling will pass, as will as my missing of China. Yes, I miss China (I NEVER thought I’d say that!). The quirkiness of the city I lived in with all its crazy signs, the food (okay – this is really what I miss the MOST about China! Why can’t I find a noodle place here???). It was quite pretty in the area that I lived too – and I miss the sparsely decorated apartment I lived in. The solitude. I like my alone time very much.
So how do I cure the travelling blues? I scope out hotel websites, Wikipedia for different countries to travel to and read about, look up flight information for the best deals – does it help? A bit – at least for a while. If the sun would shine a bit more when I was off work, I would be less melancholy – I would be able to get outside and walk. Take pictures of new areas.
Life in Canada is good – I am happy to be back. But I will continue to have the travelling blues until May when I will head to Ottawa for a few days! In the meantime – I will dream of the beaches of Chile, the beauty of Prague and the food of China!!
