1. Bucket list for back home
During a journey and longer stays abroad you will inevitably develop new perspectives. You will sharpen your gaze and broaden your horizon. It is quite common that after a journey people want to preserve bits and pieces of this feeling or the lifestyle during the journey.
Do: Make notes in your diary or send yourself an e-mail with a list of things you want to do or keep doing when you are back home. This may help you to preserve memories, experiences and a certain behaviour that you became fond of during your journey and that you would like to integrate in your daily life.
Don't: Don't be too hard on yourself if you have only been able to achieve a few things on your list after a few years. “I don't know what happened to my projects 'guerilla-gardening in my street' and 'organizing a neighborhood-exchange-base'. At least I managed to fulfill the task 'regular movement in the nature' in form of 'going outside on a semi-regular basis'”.
