Post Holiday Blues

So what do you do after a trip of a lifetime? Apparently, I sulk. Sure it was great to be home, surrounded by our stuff, at least for the first few hours, but it felt like we were supposed to be doing something, but couldn't quite remember what it was.
What? The holiday's over???
We did the laundry, restocked the refrigerator, put the luggage back in the bodega and met up with friends. It's nice to have friends, but it has it's downfalls, too. They all wanted to know what was next for us? What new and exciting thing were we going to do as a follow up? The sad truth is that we just don't know. The world is a huge place with limitless possibilities, but sadly, the same cannot be said for our cash. Big trips take planning and saving as well as inspiration. How can we just whittle down our next destination from all the choices.

There's a lot of places in Ecuador that we'd still like to see; some near, so far, but how do you get excited when you've been to one of the mother-of-all-bucket-list places in the world? It's obvious to need to go to another one. Should it be another of the 7 wonders of the world? Should it be one of the 7 natural wonders of the world? Or one of the 7 most popular treks in the world? Why limit it to the sevens? Why not look at top twenty things?

You see where I'm going with this, right? The list gets to be overwhelming and unless we want to pile all the options in to a hat and pull one out, we may never decide what to do next. (Don't laugh, we've done the hat thing before and it worked out quite well.)

I know that the Galapagos is on many people "must see" list and so is the Amazon, and those are two things right here in Ecuador. There are tons of animals to be seen, birds to watch and waterways to traverse, so we've got a lot to look forward to. Perhaps they aren't the Wall or the Pyramids of Giza, but they are amazing in their own way. Now, all we need to do is pump up the cash reserves again, so we can get back on the travel horse and discover more of the world. Maybe we'll see you out there, somewhere!
