I know that traveling is the best thing in the world. But no matter how wonderful your trip is, it’s always nice to head home. Below I’ve included the top four things I look forward to after traveling!
Numero Uno: You now are able to use your own bathroom, meaning you don’t have to take a shower in a cruise ship coffin OR find yourself in Europe with no shower curtain and only a half glass plate protecting you and a waterfall of terror from the rest of the world.
Dos: Speaking of having your own bathroom, this now means that you have use of actual human-sized toiletries. You no longer have to injure yourself while beating the last bit of conditioner from the tiny human size bottle. On top of all of this, you regain access to your nice face wash and night cream so you can now fix all the damage done by using soap on your face for the past two weeks.
Tres: The comfort of your own bed is the most amazing feeling in the world. The MOST amazing feeling in the whole world and you sleep like a little baby on sheets that have been softened by angle tears. The first night home will be the most amazing sleep you’ve had in awhile, yet you will still inevitably wake sore for the next few days until your body makes the adjustment.
Cuatro: Washing & Drying Machines. Yes, I realize that on a cruise I can get my clothes cleaned, but they starch everything and they have a salt water smell. When I’m backpacking around Europe, I occasionally have time to take them to the cleaners, but for some reason they always come back with the strangest of smells and I break out in hives. So, I am forced to clean them on my own and line dry them. Which results in any aray of smells and once you put them in your backpack for even one second they are ruined and will smell and be wrinkly for the rest of your trip.
Don’t get me wrong here people, I love traveling more than anything in the world and if these are my only complaints I would call myself lucky. But, nonetheless, they are complaints and they are all so true.
