The Worst Job I’ve Ever Had

Getting Over the Post Travel Blues

I love traveling. I love going to the other side of the world, exploring new cultures, meeting new people, and getting lost eating my way through a city. I love discovering the unexpected and living life outside of schedules, routines, and a phone. But this post isn’t about what I love about traveling. It’s about the one thing I hate about traveling.
