I woke up at my usual time (around 7am) and lazed in bed for a little before making a move. After a breakfast of oats, almonds, sultanas, currants, dried apricot and fresh nectarine, I set up a little work station and set about crossing things off my to-do list. My greatest priority is entering a few months’ worth of diary entries into the WordPress system, so that I don’t have to touch my blog again until mid-January. My second priority is planning the same period’s worth of Instagram photos. Thirdly, I’d like to write my next newsletter, which is long overdue. If I complete all of this in record time, then I might even be able to work on my proposal to get a travel grant being offered by Australian Geographic and North Face. Hunger encouraged me to take a break and grab some food. I returned to the same kebab shop I visited yesterday. In the evening I returned to the same restaurant at which I’d had dinner last night too. I like returning to the same places so that I can be a familiar face (and be surrounded by familiar faces) – it creates a small sense of belonging, which is an important feeling when you spend so much time by yourself in foreign places where it’s easy to feel lost sometimes.
