For those of you who have done tours of, let's say, 3 months or more, and especially if your tour spanned several countries ...
Did you experience long tour fatigue? How would you describe it? And if you have experienced it, what did you do about it?
Long tour fatigue is not just tiredness from being more physically active than you might normally be, although that may be part of it. It's being tired of packing up and going somewhere new every day or every few days, of having to find accommodation and food, and the basic necessities in life. It's the strain of finding your way in a new culture or with different languages. It's the loneliness of always seeing new faces (as wonderful as those people may be), and never or rarely seeing old familiar friends or family who you can really relax with. It usually includes a desire to just stop in one place for a while ... somewhere where you feel comfortable, safe, happy, relaxed.
