Vacation Blues

So, I just had a month-long mixed-events vacation in India. Events being - birth in the family, death in dad's family, wedding of a friend and split of another. After attending all these, I am back to reality of my life in Norway after 24hours of travel and transits. It feels stupid to travel such long time to Europe because I couldn't get a better flight in my budget. On top of that, they advanced my flight. So imagine how much fun I must have had passing transit time of over 10hours.

Taking a whole month vacation, coming back and getting settled to work is certainly not new to me. Inspite of doing it for more than 3years now, this time its kind of more home sickness that made me feel different. And then my mom cries every time I call her [moms you know!].

To get off all these emotions of the mind, I slept like a log after reaching home.. expecting to be fresh for the next day to work which turned to be little odd to me after the following sequence of incidents.

1. I woke up to a blunt hangover.
2. I forgot where I usually have my stuff and passwords.
3. I ate nothing for one whole day. So, I started to get some groceries.
4. I carried my gym card instead of bus card.
5. I handed over US dollars to buy a Norwegian bus ticket for which I got a silly smile from the driver.
6. I missed the stop I had to get down.
7. Reaching the store, I opened the wallet to know that I forgot my money cards.
8. Came back home and after planning to re-make my visit to the store, I remembered that there is a nearer store that I usually prefer about which I completely forgot.
9. There I stood in the middle of the road all confused about what I was doing.
Only then I realised that something is going really wrong with me.

Do you think I need more reasons to say that I am suffering from post-vacation blues? Before I slowly go into the phase of depression, I am pushing myself hard to fall back to my routine. Wish me luck.

Have you ever experienced such things? Lend me some tips!!


  1. A post vacation hangover:) You need another short break to come back both mentally and physically :)

  2. Nice dress. Looks like you like polka dots!!

  3. And here I am struggling to take a vacation!

Polka Dots Please

I love how Polka Dots are so versatile. You don't need to wait for a season to wear them or in fact wait for any occasion. I've got enough of my polka dots outfits and I love all of them. Especially this blazer.. I was bit skeptical when I bought this if it looks too formal and works well only as formals. But let me tell you. This will go with anything and everything.. for a work meeting with formal trousers and shirts, at the same time you can wear for a family dinner or carry it as a warmer for a cocktail party when you feel chills with your drinks. Or for a girls casual day-out wearing with a simple jeans and t-shirt like this one. 
Here, I styled it with my favourite jeans over a tube top, accessorised with a simple choker and an aqua shade finger ring (not well captured but another favourite one). Ended with a pony tail and black heels which I think gave a classy look, no? What do you think? Let me know how it works for you.

Summer Dream

Starting with some "long time no see" ranting.. 😀 I can't believe that its been such a long time I opened the blog to write a post. The last time I was here, I wrote a long travel post with some nice pictures and I lost the whole thing for the second time when I was editing the format. I got fed up and procrastinated it forever. 
Then this post was supposed to go in summer around August. But I realised that managing a blog with a full-time job (which you love the most), travelling, other hobbies and long to-do lists of personal errands is not an easy task after all. And falling sick in-between all this makes it even more worse. The blog totally had to take a back seat.
Coming to the weather part, this year has been a disaster. Every one of us felt like we got cheated by Stavanger. Or the Sun God decided not to visit us. Or the Earth didn't tilt well enough for Norway to get some Sun. Whatever! Would you believe if I say that this whole year gave us the sunny days th…

What is L.O.V.E.?

The four lettered happiest, hurtful, mysterious (and what not!) word causing happiness, pain and loads of confusion in lives of people. While I started to write something about it on this "so called" special day, nothing popped up in my mind. Like nothing. Nada. 
I questioned myself - Can we really say/write about love? Can we really define love? Isn't Love a feeling to experience and an expression to let someone know about your feeling? There are SO many kinds of love that words alone can never do it justice. Probably that is the reason they simplified it to the phrase 'I Love You'.
Love towards our parents, siblings, husband/wife, kids, family, friends, pets, acquaintances, and even to a stranger, we show our love and respect. Each one of us has our own feeling, experience, definition and obviously our own ways of expressing it.
Love is like a sneeze, I feel.. you know.. the restlessness before and the relaxation after. Its exactly the same. And you cannot explain…
