Learning to Relax!

A million years ago when we used to go on family vacations my dad would always take a couple of days to relax.  He'd be antsy and grumbly the first few days and then get into the vacation thing.  As a kid, I didn't understand it.  To me arriving in Hawaii, or whereever, would flip a switch and I'd pull up a beach chair slather myself with suncreen and read all day without a care in the world.  When I went to Hawaii for my friend Calista's wedding a few years ago, I finally understood the phenomenon.  After the hectic pace we kept in Mongolia, this trip has exemplified the need to ease into relaxation mode.

I have now been in Bali for four days, and I'm finally relaxed.  I have met some tres fun 30 something Aussie's to hang out with and have finally quieted my brain.  Let the vacation begin..
