Holiday Withdrawals

I have a serious case of Holiday Withdrawals! They are so real because I am experiencing it right now! This occurrence happened each and every time I come back from any oversea trips.

MOST of us went on holiday with the perspective that the longer we stay away, the easier it grows to believe that somehow, in our absence, the unpleasantness that made us want to escape our daily life have disappeared. 

Travel has always been a priority for me. I'd rather spend time and money on any adventure than anything else. Wanderlust is in my soul. I never feel more alive than when I am breathing in the morning air of the so call "temporary home" for the next couple of weeks or so!

I recently went on a 24 days holiday to Vietnam for a family (and friends) reunion... or rather, a trip to "eat my heart out" more like it because I literally 'Eat Sleep Repeat' every single day while I was in Vietnam Smiley

Yes I had an amazing time catching up with some long lost relatives that I have not seen for 28 years and in particularly one person I have not seen for 30-something years! But while that was all good then, dragging myself out of bed the last 2 weeks since I got back was harder than I could imagine!

And how did I come up with the term holiday withdrawals? It is because...

I have cravings for Vietnamese food constantly and not just any random Vietnamese dishes either; it has to be the home-cooked kinds like the one I made for dinner the other day!

I miss hopping on/off an Uber or Grab Taxi whenever I want to go out and boy were they the best method of transport ever and so cheap too!!!

When I see holiday pics while scrolling through my holiday album and cry a little.

When I am in dire need of a cà phê sửa đá Smiley Aussie's Cold Brew or Iced Coffee is just not the same!

When I eat the last of the food gifts my family gave to me! These 'melt in your mouth' Bánh Đậu Xanh are so addictive. Each time I unwrapped one of these little delight, it literally feel like Christmas all over again!

When I create a countdown to the next foodie event(s) and start brainstorming my next holiday destination!

If all else failed, I could just look at getting my hands on doing some of these DIYs That Make Great Gifts for Travellers to get over my withdrawals! Wish me luck!!!
