First Timers in Europe – Jet-lagged but full of amazing memories

European Vacation {Saving up for Disney}

Wow! I am finally home after a whirlwind trip to Europe covering 4 countries and 5 cities in ten days. I won this trip on a Skype Pinterest contest and my husband and I traveled with 14 other people on an Intrepid Travel Tour group through Central Europe.

Jet-lag. I’d heard of it, of course, but never knew what soul-crushing symptoms I would be faced with upon my return! I was affected only slightly on the first day in Germany but after walking in the city, napping briefly and drinking plenty of water I was fine the next morning. Coming back and settling in to home life has been a different matter, however. I have been experiencing nausea, vertigo and extreme exhaustion. I have read that it takes about 5 days to get back to normal, so if that’s true, I should be finally feeling better in the next day or two. Talk about a crazy brain fog, I can only hope and pray that my body goes back to normal very soon.

I’ll be getting my posting back to normal next week! In the meantime, enjoy this photo of me above the city of Cesky Krumlov in the Czech Republic. Looks like a little fairy tale village, doesn’t it?
