Well I arrived back in Sydney yesterday at the rather ungodly hour of 6am! The flight wasn’t too bad, it was totally full (overbooked in fact), but I was seated in the window seat with a really nice yoga instructor next to me and another young lady next to her so we weren’t too squooshed 😉 I had one experience a few years ago where I was in the middle between two larger gentlemen which was a lot less comfortable!
That said – I don’t really have that much of a problem with flying – I did in the past but really, I have so much to be grateful for when it comes to my lifestyle and ability to spend time in other countries that a half day’s minor discomfort isn’t that big a deal. It may sound a bit hokey – but cultivating gratitude made a big difference to my perceptions and experiences.
Yesterday was okay – stayed awake till about ten pm, if a little groggy… I woke up about 5am this morning but went back to bed after an hour or so and had a few more hours rest. I don’t really get bad jet lag at all… but a lot of that I’m sure if being able to make my own timetable.
I had so much fun while I was away – but I have to say I’m happy to be at home for a while… I still haven’t unpacked from my trip – I have some new toys I bought too! Inspired by some cool things I got to play with while visiting Irene Boss at The Compound South. She has more stuff than I do – pouts – but not for forever! I’m such a crazed shop-a-holic when it comes to gear 😉
