I'm Just Here For The Food

The Ashtray Says, You've Been Up All Night

So I'm back! So now what? I wish I could say life was good, and I'm settling down into a routine, but honestly life kind of sucks right now. It also doesn't help that I've been having a difficult time sleeping since I got back. At first it was just the jet-lagg and stuff, but now it's the everything else that's going on. There are a few things I'm trying to wrap my head around (well one main thing, and then a few other little things), and all it's doing is keeping me up. I wish I could just turn off the brain before going to bed, but other than knocking myself unconsious, I don't think that's going to happen. Oh well hopefully it will all work out soon.

It doesn't help that I just have no idea what I want to do now. Do I stay in Science, or try something else? I really like food, but I don't think I could ever be a chef, so what else is out there? Suggestions?

So as for this Blog, well I'm still here, and food is still here, so I'll probably just keep it going, and see what it develops into. I just wanted to thank everyone for the comments they made, and the emails I got on the road. It was pretty lonely out there sometimes, and the messages from home really helped that out. I tried to keep this Blog fairly positive, and like 90% of the trip was insanely amazing, but traveling alone for that long, was really wearing me down at times. At times I was just sick of meeting new people every few days, and having the same "Where you from? How long have you been traveling?" conversation. I got tired of meeting really reat people, and then having to leave them. I got tired of consantly deciding where I would have to eat, and where I would have to stay with out having someone to bounce ideas off of. Mostly though, I just got tired of me. Sometimes I would be trapped with myself for days, with no one else to really talk to, and quite frankly there were times when I would have walked out on myself if I could. I mean fuck, I just wouldn't shut up most the time. Give it a rest buddy, just let me eat in piece.

Honestly though, I had a great time, and met some of the greatest people I'll ever meet. So if any of you are out there reading this, thanks. You all made this the trip of a life time, and hopefully we'll meet again. The food was great, the sights were great, but it was the people, both travelers and locals alike who really made this trip for me.

  • Oh it's not quite as bad as I'm making it out to be. It's just that for one of the first times in my life, I just don't know what I'm going to do, or what I want to do for that matter, and it's frustrating the hell out me. I'll figure it out though. It just a bit harder considering I'm living in a town where I don't really know anyone.

    By the way the pictures you got from Milena are awesome, especially the one of Swing. I'm going to have to email her soon.

  • Hi Peter!

    While deepdiving in the net, I found your blog and read your post about staying with us. So nice to hear you had a great time and that you could make your cousteau dreams a little come true! For now however, I hope you will find the right road where to go, I know it's weird to come 'home' after a long time. Just take care of yourself, and if you can't sleep in the night, imagine probably to be once again cousteau, diving in the deep blue. Don't worry to much...

    Greetings from the Andaman Sea, Thailand,
