I don’t know how travel bloggers do it. How do they travel the world and write about it constantly day after day after day? All the time, almost in real time.
I just don’t know.
I need time to digest, to rest, and sometimes, time to pretend to be on a quest.
I need quiet time with no phones, updates or worry about statistics.
I need time away from the blog to sense the atmosphere and the significance the place might hold for its visitors – even if it’s only an unfamiliar coffee shop I am visiting.
I need time to collapse onto my bed after a full day of all the sensing, and then, not to sense at all: just sleep till it’s time to wake up and sense it all again until, the journey is over.
Then, I need some time to recover.
Some time to realize what I have just seen and where I have been to.
I need 3 days and 1000 kilometres worth of recovery.
