Then in August Tommy went back to Sweden to finish up his school which he should be done with by the end of the year. I (some of you better prepare yourselves to hear this) went back to work. Yup. It's true. I went back to the real world. Back to the daily grind. Back to work.
So that's where it stands now. I am traveling for work around the country (I just happen to be working in Maine this week), but it's nothing like the traveling I just came from. Yes I hear people speaking different languages at work and I have to try and understand what some of them are trying to say and decipher their emails, but it's not the same. My brain remembers a surprising amount of stuff that I knew before I left (I am still working for the same company, back from my leave of absence) even though I tried hard for over a year to forget everything connected to work.
I'm not quite yet ready to right "the final entry" but I can answer a few questions I keep getting asked.
Are things different? Most definitely.
Have I changed? I think so.
Was it worth it? I would have paid twice as much.
How much did you spend? Not really sure but it will be nice to get paychecks again.
How is the world? Fantastic, go and see it.
Would I do it again? Faster than "in a heartbeat"
Are you done traveling? Well I'm allowed back in the EU September 21st ...
