I need a vacation from my vacation.

The husband and I got back from vacation on Saturday, and I spent all day Sunday recuperating. There was  certainly no cooking, although I bravely changed out of my pajamas long enough to go to the grocery store.

Why did I need a day of utter and complete sloth after two weeks of vacation, you ask? Two reasons: 1.) The husband and I tend to vacation pretty hard. We can relax at home, but we don't want to miss anything a new town has to offer. 2.) It was a long trip home. Looooong. 14 hour plane ride + 3 hour plane ride + 2.5 hour plane ride + 2 hour drive = TIRED. 

Where did we go that required so many stinkin' hours in the air, you ask? We went to a place where Vegemite flows freely, koalas climb the trees, and The Wiggles call home. We went to the land down under. (And, yes, I am currently singing the 1982 classic by Aussie band Men at Work.) Beautiful Australia.

Of course I documented some food adventures to share with you all, but more on that later in the week. For now, I'm going to continue trying to conquer the jet lag. Wish me luck... 


  1. Can't wait to hear more about your trip! Good luck recovering ... that's a rough one!

  2. Fabulous!! I've ever been to there and it's high on my list of place I wish to go.
    And yes... I totally understand needing a vacation from vacation! VAcation is exhausting!

  3. I almost always need a vacation after a vacation. It is always so worth it though. I cannot wait to see what you have for us in terms of foodie adventures.

  4. Sounds like the trip of a lifetime and well worth jet lag. But I hear ya! I always schedule an extra day off work after getting back from a vacation so I can decompress.
