Be patient. It will take me a day or two to disconnect from work and relearn my traveling self.
I will need more alone time than you expect. This is because all those alone moments at home that happen naturally (coming home before you for example, or reading while you shower) don’t happen naturally in travel. Don’t be upset if I want to have breakfast or coffee alone.
I make tons of plans but I’m not attached to any of them. You won’t know that I’m not attached to any of them and so you’ll worry, but don’t panic, wait until the time you want to do a thing and just say what you want to do and we’ll go do it.
When in doubt, more glitter.
When I’m tired, I have to keep giving myself pep talks to keep going. Knowing when I get to stop is supper important (e.g. It’s 9pm, this place closes at midnight, at worst I get to be asleep in 3.5 hours).
I will eat anything but the more strange to me the food is the less I will eat. Organic greens = sufficient calorie intake, green bean casserole from a can = eating as polite fiction. The stranger the local food the more frequently I’ll eat too since I’m not sure when the next thing I can eat will be.
