Returning from a holiday break can be really traumatic. Whether you’ve been away two days, two weeks or a month, going back to the city’s routine is always quite dramatic.
Provided you survive a 10-hour flight sitting next to a lady who moans and kicks in her sleep, returning home from the holidays can be a taxing ordeal. I made it possible by slipping into a self-induced coma via red wine (thankyou Air France) and telling myself I was really happy to get back to the city and get to work.At home, after picking up a 10-pound pile of bills (NB: tweeting from Mexico can be very picturesque albeit a tad expensive), I was greeted by a congealed pond of ice cream all over my floor, which will remind me in the future to check my freezer for content before I switch it off.This was followed by an evening of shame: all my friends had brought back amazing gifts from their trips (including this book, The Zombie Survival Guide , a new personal favourite). All I brought back was an amazing tan, a haircut and a few mildly amusing snorkeling anecdotes.
The upside to all this was coming back to a broadband connection and discovering this new work by French techno guru Arnaud Rebotini aka Black Strobe – once again an oldie-but-goldie turned contemporary. This is his personal take on Donna Summer’s “I feel love” – it’s urban, dark and feels just as foggy as Milan does in autumn.
