Familiarity of home was one thing I didn’t think I’d miss all that much when I began to travel.
Why should I miss a familiar place when all I had for it was contempt?
Though now, I do have a different perspective. I’m going to enjoy myself no matter where I am, or how I am.
First day back was easy. I started slow, easing myself into the day, surprisingly though, I’m not experiencing any jet lag after flying for 14 hours and not catching a wink on the plane.
I decided to treat myself today – and treat myself I mean, picking up some fresh fish and cooking it – I’ve been traveling and eating on the go and admittedly, the stuff you’d usually eat might not be available at the destination – or it might be exorbitantly expensive, or ill-fitted for your tastebuds.
For example, I challenge you to try and find fresh seafood in Vienna (possibly difficult feat.)
And of course my diet has been a little atrocious as of late…
Read: Schnitzel, schnitzel, schnitzel, sausage, cake, apfelstrudel, cake schnitzel sandwich, beer, beer, wine, wine…wine…and more wine…
I went a little all out there and ended up missing vegetables and home cooking.
So today, first day back, I decided to cook for myself and the result is – healthy, delicious, home cooked food that I didn’t think I would miss, but really really did miss.
