Sandwiches and Blues

Wow. I can't quite believe that just over a year ago I moved to Bristol and begun all this. I am very sorry I have been a bit rubbish with staying on top of my blog the last few months. I spent my summer in Patagonia, Chile and then Himalaya, India. Now the madness is over and I have finally got back to some sort of "routine", I have once again got back "ontheline". Let me explain... 

I love sandwiches. However, I love sandwiches at the top of mountains the best. Those sandwiches taste the best. However, after eating the best sandwiches ever, everyday sandwiches seem a bit bland, grey and monotonous. Despite lashings of chilli jam and fairly pungent cheese I just can't recreate the awesome, amazing sandwiches from those moments.

Finally, I think I have got a good antidote to my own personal 'post-adventure' blues. It's a little thing that I have struggled with for a long time - R n R. Rest and Relaxation. TLC. Self love. Whatever you want to call it, but it consists of a solid period of time spent sat in bubble baths, drinking wine, eating pizza and watching movies (The Martian, Pocohontas and Mean Girls are my current Top 3), chatting with friends, gardening and just enjoying... home. 

This time has been pivotal to understanding and developing an answer to the question... "What Next?"... 

Now, to find my walking boots and get back out there. 
(And to write a proper blog post about India this week)...
