Not a very positive post today I’m afraid.
I’m suffering travel burnout in Europe after 5 months of non-stop travel
I’ve seen some pretty amazing things, and done some pretty amazing things; met some wonderful people, and even managed to find ‘love’ on the road a couple of times.
Right now, I just feel like settling down somewhere for a while
Not only am I sick of constantly moving every few days, but I’m not really enjoying the sights anymore, my travel friends who I have caught up with recently have noticed I’m not the same person they met in the months leading up to now: could be travel burnout, could be the whole ‘love’ on the road thing… which never really works out when you end up always on the move.
I just need the right visas (to get work), or the right sort of downtime to collect my thoughts, upload my pictures, and get everything out.
My hat goes off to all those travel bloggers who are constantly on the move, and yet manage to find the time and patience to write about their travels every few days — I’m still struggling with website design.

Basically, I want to know what you do when you suffer from burnout:
- Do you suck it up and keep travelling? Change continent?
- Run home with your tail between your legs? (1 year early)
- Or just shack up somewhere for a month or so to recharge? (not sure I can afford that last one without a working visa)
