I really don’t feel like myself since I got home. At first I thought it was jet lag because I couldn’t sleep and had an attention span that could be counted in seconds, rather than minutes or hours.
Then the days moved on and now I’ve been home over a week, but still I lie awake [...]

Hi all, just wanted you to know we arrived home safe and sound. The 22 hour plane flight home was FANTASTIC. No really, just great! I’d happily do it again tomorrow.
