23: Back To Basics

I’m finally back in London and guess what?

It’s been raining 😦

No surprises there really but still, one can’t help but feel a slight tings of disappointment to be back to my reality

Let’s not confuse that with me not loving my home. I absolutely love London, after all, there’s no place like home right?

I always look forward to landing at either Heathrow or Gatwick airport for one specific reason: the ‘there’s no place like home’ surge of emotions I get upon landing safely

It never fails to put everything into perspective

But now that I’m back. It’s time to get to work. I’ve done enough laying about, sunbathing, exploring, eating, basically I’ve rested enough and now it’s time to get back in motion

Back to the writing, back to the filming, back to my life basically and most importantly, back to the basics of my life

I realise what a self indulgent post this one is. Apologies for that

Be well

21: Into The Wild

If you’re ever in Tenerife and are into wild life, I’d encourage you to take a trip to Loro Parque

And if you do decide to make the trip, please book the ‘Discovery Tour’ which will take you backstage around the park while your guide teaches you the extreme lengths this organisation are going to as they try to preserve endangered Animals

The whole park is just a wonder to behold. I would never normally do this, I mean, I have London Zoo, just around the corner from me but other than childhood school trips, I’ve never had an interest to visit

Now I do

It was a fitting way for me to end my vacation

There’s so much more I could write but I think I want to stay carefree for my journey home

I feel relaxed and connected

I’m at the airport with a smile – heading back to reality and mentally already plotting out my next adventure

Be well

15:Doing Nothing

So my flight was delayed for an hour on the runway before taking off. We landed an hour late (accordingly) and the delay made the journey feel that little bit extra long

I don’t know about you but once the initial sensation of a plane taking off subsides, the journey begins to feel like you’re just stuck in a box, sat beside groups of people who don’t know and most likely won’t get to know well enough to want to keep in touch

so after a while, all I want to do is just ‘get there’

And of course you do eventually get there and you quickly forget about your impatient feeling of getting there and begin to enjoy the new environment that you’re in

I’ve given myself Saturday and Sunday to ‘do nothing’ but relax and enjoy the scenery before doing all the ‘tours’ and ‘tourist activities’

My sleep was deep and long last night. I had to get used to the humidity and thickness of the ‘air’. I had to open all my windows plus my balcony door just so any fresh breeze would come in and give me respite from the heat

But once asleep, I was out like a light. I tend to wake up multiple times during the night and for some reason, I kept making a mental note of just how deep my sleep was. i was still up by 6am in the morning, so it’s not like I had a lie-in or anything, it’s just that when I’m home, my sleep can be shallow, what with my mind being often consumed with the cares of day to day living, it can sometimes be hard for me to switch off.

Thankfully, it seems as though I have managed to do just that while on vacay – i’ve switched off and will remain switched off even as I do little pieces of work here and there

I guess sometimes it’s great doing absolutely nothing 🙂

Be well
