Its a difficult situation to be in - i feel like i should be using every moment to see more sites, to meet more people, to go out every night and then all the next day. Particularly because most people I meet in the hostels are only travelling for a short time, so want to cram everything in. But for me, Im finding it impossible to maintain the pace without either going crazy or feeling down and depressed
So, even though i felt a bit guilty to take a break from my sightseeing, I decided I needed a rest day or two. Yesterday and today were spent in bed reading, going for a jog, and wandering aimlessly around drinking coffee and tea in cafes. And I feel much better for it. Still not 100% but getting there. I think Im also adjusting to being alone again, after spending the last two weeks in the company of good friends.
Anyway, enough wallowing. Its all part of the travel experience and one of the reasons I decided to do such a long trip, to test my character, strength and will power.
Speaking of emotional strength, Im going on a tour of a concentration camp tomorrow, so will need all the mental stamina I can draw together.
