I'm currently back in the US after being away for over a year. I plan to be home for only two weeks and then I'm off to Mexico, where I plan to spend the rest of the year.
It's funny how nothing really changed in that 1+ year period. Everything still looks and feels familiar. Even driving around feels so natural, despite the fact that I haven't driven a car since I left last year. I've only been home for a few days and I'm already itching to go somewhere else. I guess I'm really getting used to this digital nomad lifestyle.
I'm of course trying to get the most out of being home by spending time with family and friends. I have friends who I actually haven't seen in over two years as last time I was home we couldn't work out a schedule as everyone's busy. We finally found a day later this week to get together for dinner and I'm really looking forward to it.
Being home is also a good time to re-supply as a digital nomad. I buy all my stuff from Amazon and signed up for a free 30-day Prime trial so I can get free two-day shipping. I've bought a new pair of jeans, some t-shirts, a new pair of travel/hiking shoes, and a new cheap smartphone so far. American brand items can be so much more expensive outside the US. Electronics, especially, are usually cheaper to buy in the US regardless of brand. I've been using my Amazon price alert app to get notified of price drops and have actually saved some money already from it.
The weather this week has been great so far. I plan to spend the day in New York City tomorrow if this great weather continues. Also looking forward to attend the weekly Django meetups, those are usually fun.
At this point, I'm not so sure I'd want to return home permanently anytime soon. There's still so much to explore out there and I still enjoy the freedom of changing my environment every few months.
