    I recognize the issue. I noticed I didn’t enjoy a trip as much when I was just thinking about the content I needed to create about the place. Instead of enjoying the experience it became a hunt for the best photo spots and letting the food get cold while I’m trying to get the perfect shot. So, these days I put holidaying ahead of the content. The content will be better anyway if I have an actual idea of where I’ve been.

      I definitely agree, Teresa!

    These are great tips, Kiersten! On my first long-term trip, I planned 65 days of travel the same way I used to plan a 2-week getaway and learned about travel burnout the hard way. I didn’t realize that not leaving room for self-care and rest days would end up being just as stressful as my full-time job. Oops! Now I definitely try really hard to go slower and give myself time. I’ll implement these tips on my next travel leg!

      Thanks for sharing, Ioana! You don’t really realize that it can happen until it hits…but man, the worst!
