I've been home for a couple of days. What an amazing vacation. The trip back was long, though - we got up at 3:00am in Istanbul, and 28 hours (three flights) later I arrived in Calgary. I can't sleep in airplanes, so I got a hotel for the night in Calgary. Even then, it was 2:00am before I got in and managed to catch about 4 hours sleep before my dad came to pick me up.
I'm not sure if I picked up a flu bug or if it was a mistake to brush my teeth using tap water in Turkey, but whatever it is hit me during a layover in Paris. I haven't managed to kick it yet. Nosebleeds started yesterday, I assume from the dry air after being spoiled with the humidity over there.
I went to bed at 2:30pm on the day I got home, and slept until 4:00am. Yesterday, I slept through Halloween (poo!) when I went to bed at 5:30 and slept 12 hours. I'm trying to stay up until 9 tonight, in an effort to get back to a normal schedule.
