Hi. Don't know if this is the right forum, but here it goes:
I've been traveling solo around South east Asia for 2 1/2 months now. For the last couple of weeks, I just been so tired of traveling and moving around. I have no energy or even want to meet new people, cause I know that the friendship is gonna be a short one anyway.. I gotten cynical with time I think, because I found it really hard to meet great people you start to really care about but at one point you're gonna have to say goodbye... I guess it's becoming a way of protecting myself, cause I have a hard time of letting go. I'm like a robot who just gets up and spend the day doing nothing but lying at the beach. At night I can't be bothered going out for dinner with people, I actually prefer just staying in and watching Netflix . I really miss having a friend where you can just sit and be quiet and where you don't have to be 'on it' if you know what I mean? It's not that I haven't had that in my travels but I travelled to a new country 2 weeks ago and now I'm just full of meeting new people. Nor do I get excited about new places anymore. My ticket home is in 11 days so that's good. But all I wanted to know, is if someone has felt the same way? Cause I feel "wrong" in some way - I see travelers who's out and about every day and drinking every night and I feel like that's what I should be doing, but I just don't have the energy.. I feel like I'm traveling in the wrong way, especially cause I haven't been drinking that much(I had two crazy nights where the alcohol completely messed me up, so a bit scared to be drinking again), but it seems like drinking alcohol is the main thing to do at night for most people.
Has anyone felt the same way or maybe just have some comforting words even?
