As much as I've enjoyed my whirlwind trip from Dubai to South Africa, Germany and all Around the UK, there's nothing better than being back in one's own bed.
Peter joined me for the last 3 weeks and he returned to Dubai with the teen earlier this week. I arrived back in the early hours of Friday morning and after unpacking and putting most of the stuff away, i spent the rest of the day in bed, recovering from my trip.
As a result of sleeping most of yesterday I woke at 5am and sat outside drinking tea and catching up with reading blogs and leaving comments. By 6.30am it was too hot to sit outside as the temp reached 33c, with top temps of 40c and above for the rest of the week. I've missed the worst part of summer where temps reached high 40's but it's still hot, too hot to spend time outside that I've greatly enjoyed doing on my travels.

Day 229 Tuesday - Cake. Too many carbs have been eaten on this trip.
Day 230 Wednesday - Happy. Nails done. bags packed, transport booked.
Day 231 Thursday - I'm Reading. Blog posts on the bus.
Day 232 Friday - Sport. Spent the early evening watching the Olympics, the rest of the day in bed.
Day 233 Saturday - Drink. Not drinking coffee or soft drinks anymore, sure they're responsible for the weight gain while travelling.
