“Travel has a way of stretching the mind. The stretch comes not from travel’s immediate rewards, the inevitable myriad new sights, smells and sounds, but with experiencing firsthand how others do differently what we believed to be the right and only way.” – Ralph Crawshaw
After meeting thousands of super nice and hospitable people. After drinking uncountable amount of tea, wine, chacha and cognac. I’m back.
Coming back home my travels!
I can enjoy gatherings with my family. I can indulge in lunches and gossips with my Girls. I can finally lay down on the sofa with my book. I can catch up with my lovely nephews. I can go horse riding in our house in the countryside. Maybe attend a date or two with those handsome rugby players that has been sending all those email. Yeah Right! I wish I could.
I’m back. And for past two weeks I have been relaxing. Lazy me you will say! But I wasn’t able to relax fully. In the back of my head I have all those thoughts about what I should do.
I should copy all the pictures on my computer. Edit them and add them to my picture library on my blog. I should write about 5 posts for ‘Things You Didn’t Know’ series. And maybe about 10 for ‘From the Road’. Not to mention constant ‘photography hunt’ for participants for my weekly ‘Friday Lens Affair’.
I should write post about all the great places and cities I have visited. About all the amazing people I have met! Oh and I should send email to all of them as well.
I should write about all the crazy situations I got myself into.
About joining expedition from Institute of Forest Protection in the mountains of Tusheti.
About visiting Ivanowka, one of the last existing kolkhoz in the world.
About escaping from the hotel in Dilijan.
About getting best hitchhiking ride ever, on a private tour bus.
About getting a metal profile of Stalin as a gift.
About illegal visit to Agdam and many more.
I should maybe write guides about countries I have visited. I should try to approach some on-line magazines and newspaper for featuring my pictures and stories.
I should. I should. I should. What I really should do was to write on the road! At least a bit. Some drafts. Some brief ideas.
I’m really full of admirations for those bloggers who manage to be so well organized. so up to date.
Not that I’m not driven! I really love sharing my stories and pictures from my travels. I love to talk about my adventures. I love to inspire people to travel and to dream. I can’t help thinking I should finish this post and start writing the others.
Please, please my dear readers have patience for me. I’m obviously very slowly getting this whole travel blogging rules and logics. but I have a feeling I started to move in a right direction. I will write posts about all the amazing adventures I have got myself into this year. It just may take a while.
