This statement is quite literally the definition of a First World Problem and I feel lame for saying it, but despite being a pretty avid traveller, I always find that I need a few days to recoup after getting back from a vacation or travelling. Kind of pathetic, really, but somehow I always catch a bug or get rundown from a red-eye flight (I am one of those people who needs 8-hour sleeps or literally can’t function, not the most physically resilient human being apparently) and end up feeling a bit off for a few days once I’m home, even if the vacation itself was super rejuvenating. But fortunately, despite recovering from a bit of a bug now the trip was rejuvenating, rejuvenating and enlightening. Click through to read more!

I find that on every vacation or in every city I travel, I somehow always learn something about myself, my life or the world itself – it can be a teeny tiny discovery or a big revelation, but I always feel a bit of an internal shift when I board that plane home. Whether I’m travelling somewhere familiar (like Maui) or to a completely unknown destination, getting away from home is always about discovery for me.

Maui was all about relaxing, being present and just turning my brain off, which made me really realize how absolutely important it is for me to sometimes revert to how I was as a kid. While I try to be strict about meditating and doing some breathing exercises most days, when you’re a kid you just snap into that single-tasked mental space like it’s the most natural thing, and it usually involves some element of play or nature. Being digitally connected all the time has made my brain feel most natural in a perpetually multi-tasking, firing-off-in-all-directions mode, which is not the most ideal place to be in mentally if you want to feel some sense of peace and contentment most days. Though I love meditation and yoga, I’m trying to learn how to just be a kid again moving forward – sitting at the beach and watching the waves, exploring an unknown corner of the forest near my parents’ place, playing a board game with my friends, etc.

So in the spirit of being a kid, I’m so excited to spend some time this weekend with some of my favourite girls who always make me laugh so much and forget about my to-do’s. Seriously can’t wait. Hope you all have the most amazing weekend and get some much-needed, childlike play time too!

    Alexandra, love your bag! It has such a lovely vintage look.

    Speaking of travelling, I feel I'm a bit like you. Though I am not an avid traveler, but each voyage does change something inside me, and I feel I change a bit each time I come back home from a trip. It is a great feeling, and I try to travel more to get it 🙂

    I love that jacket so much! PS. I always love reading about your travel adventures! Makes up for the fact that I'm a poor student and don't really get to go much of anywhere 😛
