    Hi Tom & Laura, finally got round to reading your blog and have started at the beginning.

    This post made me smile as we were exactly the same, after days and days of being outside on the road the escapism the web and tv offers is untold. We’d arrive in big cities at a hostel and other tourists would say have you visited this temple or that museum? We’d say no we’re just chilling, which meant watching back to back episodes of House and the Big Bang theory!

    Did you find the same with food? On the road you eat local street food or cook, but in tourist towns we would seek out pizza and chips like ‘Brits abroad’ !!

    Will continue reading and no doubt be filled with wanderlust once more.

      Thanks Liz. Glad it’s not just us! We’re probably similar with food and, for me, it’s been tea. Months drinking strong, black tea in Turkey/Iran was good cultural novelty at first but I ended up carrying my own milk powder to add surreptitiously!
