Travel Burnout

Barcelona

I’ve been away for the last two weeks (which is why I haven’t been able to post here very much), and I’m actually still away now. I just thought I’d pop in and post this thought I’ve been having over the last few days of travelling: When you begin traveling, everything you see is the most amazing thing you’ve ever seen. But after a few weeks of traveling, you tend to find amazing things to be … less than amazing.

Today as I was walking around the dirty, beautiful, scary, and intriguing city of Barcelona I kept having to force myself to really pay attention to everything. I was rarely pulling out that camera, and hating myself for it. I wish I was as excited about everything today as I was two weeks ago when I left home.
