I arrived back in Cape Town yesterday. A few people have asked me what it's like being on my own again after spending two weeks at home with my family. Granted, I wasn't on my own for all that long before I had to go home, but still - I know that even one night alone for some is unthinkable.
I guess my three years living alone in Korea taught me to enjoy my own company.
Going to a movie or coffee shop was no big deal for me. In fact, I enjoyed it. One of my biggest (personal) achievements has been my solo trips - Singapore, Malaysia and other places...like Jeju Island - Korea's "Hawaii" just off main land.
I never thought I would travel alone, but it really pushed me to learn about my capabilities, strengths and weaknesses.
Today was a typically lazy Sunday. In the evening I got dressed up and went out for dinner. Alone! I don't think I remember when last I had dinner alone, but it wasn't too bad.
When I got home, I was ready to get some work done. With all that taken care of, I'm ready to call it a night - after some reading, of course!
Have a great week ahead!
