I have become very aware of the psychological affects that returning from an expedition has on my brain.
That sense of complete euphoria which runs alongside such an epic journey is staggering to say the least.
But once a journey is complete, the satisfaction (although phenomenal) is extremely short lived….
The initial congratulations and hoorahs soon end and people quite quickly stop mentioning it, even forgetting which part of the world it was where you were walking…
You then start feeling lost and without purpose, and begin trying to fill the gaps between now and your next epic adventure….
