So whilst it was unexpected I am still here in the UK stuck from returning to Asia due to Coronavirus.
The next step of my new life in Asia is on hold at least for another month. Last time I checked flights to Thailand from the UK is banned until the 1st of June. You would also have to go through 14 days of quarantine.
Therefore, it would make sense to assume it will be the end of June before I will know for sure how easy it will be to get back.
So what do you do when you stuck in your own country but feel like a stranger?
Well, I have tried to keep myself busy. It is hard as I have had so much freedom in Asia being able to be outside virtually all the time.
Now in the UK I am having to adapt to being under lockdown and having to self isolate at a friends house.
The good news is I have managed to put weight back on. I landed back in the UK on March 13th weighing 11 stone or 69kg which is the smallest I have been since I was 14.
Now half way through May I am back to 12.5 stone or 79kg
I have time to start an exercise routine which hopefully means after 2 months of daily activity I will be able to stick to it.
I am learning a new language and reading a lot of books. Along with the odd binge on box sets thanks to Netflix.
I recommend White Lines which is about the island of Ibiza and also Itaewon Class which is a Korean drama.
Plans for the foreseeable future
Visit my Mum when lockdown eases, catch up with a few friends who I have missed and arrange a breakfast with ex work colleagues.
Then back to Asia for more work, travel and enjoying life.
We just have to continue to stay safe, keep social distancing and save lives
