I type this as I lay in my bunk bed at 8:05pm on Monday. I’m exhausted from waking up early and driving a little over three hours. My feet feel a little swollen. My right Achilles is a little tender. My back is a little sore. My legs are feeling a little rough. Keeping my eyes open is a bit of a struggle. Even though it will not be dark anytime soon (pretty sure that happens here again in July😉) there will be no issue with me calling asleep quickly. I’m wore out.
Tomorrow morning I’ll wake up and do it all over again and I’ll be smiling the entire time, even when I’m tired by the end of the day. This feels like heaven.
I know, to many this probably sounds nuts. Maybe the exact opposite of what you’d like vacation to be. Personally, I’m a huge fan of active vacations like this. Maybe it’s the fact I spend much of my professionals life in a state of stillness rather than activeness. More likely, the activities which bring me joy usually involve action or require me to work to get to what I want to see. Either way, active vacations are the right ones for me!
Time to rest up and hit it again in the morning.
