They say — whoever They are — that to recover from jet lag it takes about a day for every hour of time difference. I think that They might be right. This morning we’ve been home for ten days, and Lisa and I believe that our biological clocks might finally be in sync with the sun here in New England.
Over the weekend, we went to the Mount Washington Hotel in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire, for a company outing. It felt a bit like we were still on vacation, as if the four days at work were just a temporary stop between Australia and the White Mountains.
But, no. Today I was back at work. And I feel really productive, since I recognize that my recent vacation (to a certain extent) and the Mount Washington trip (to a much greater one) were possible because of my awesome employer.
I’m working on a longer recap post about Australia, but until then, here are a handful of things I miss about Australia:
- Master Chef Australia
- Bacon on everything
- Good bread — seriously!
- Going to the beach
- Fashionable people in Sydney
- Airport security experiences that make sense
- The cool temperatures
- Long restaurant outings
- Mövenpick ice cream
- Colorful birds
- AC power outlets that switch off at the wall
- Half- or full-flush toilets
- Really great blood glucose readings
