We spent a week back to the comforts of home and the convenience of a metropolis. We definitely missed Cantonese food, hot showers and most of all, friends and family. Taking such a long time away, people kept asking me if I missed anything about ‘normal’ life, but to be honest we were perfectly happy travelling and shivering with cold on the mountains. The only thing we do miss though, as cliche as it sounds, is our family and friends.
Taking such a long trip away from familiar places, and especially spending so much time in the sweeping landscapes of the outdoors, it takes a bit of adjustment to return to the towering skyscrapers and the mosh pit sidewalks. Despite having grown up in these kinds of places, all the bright lights feel as foreign as ever.
Think we’ll have a bit of a learning curve to adjust back to our prior lives, rounding to the nearest million while combing through CALM models.
