Hello and welcome to my Message of the Month.
This month we feature an interesting story that’s so much a part of every vacation seeker’s mind space – post-vacation blues. In our Q&A section, we talk to travel blogger Shama Ahmed about the various shades of post vacation blues, and ways to get over that empty feeling.
I’m sure you know what we are talking about here – it’s that dull hangover you might experience at the end of a vacation. Simply because we just don’t want the vacation to end.
So, what’s my own perspective on post-vacation blues? (And there’s some logical reasoning out here.) Each experience in life has a life cycle – which means there is a beginning and there is an end. Even Sunday turns into Monday, and you will only see that weekend in your rear-view mirror.
While on the subject of not wanting good times to end, I recall moments from my nostalgia diary – moments that I just wanted to hang on to, if I only could.
All this reminiscing brings me back to the vacation theme that I started the article with – I am now referring to my own timeshare plan. After all these years of happy timesharing, I realize that I have only a few more years left on my plan. And as time slowly begins to run out, I’m sure I will experience that empty feeling all over again. (25 years is a long time, but wonder if it can go on forever.)
Right now, I am coming to the end of my bowl of chocolate fudge – just have one spoonful left and in three seconds that bowl will be empty. (There I go, again...)
