+! for Chris, enjoy vacation, learning will come later with no pressure. One other item to consider, your brush lathering on your face! I hadn't DE shaved in 30+ years and had shaved off my beard so in addition to relearning technique, I had to wade through any irritation that soaps, creams etc may cause. After solving those issues and getting many GREAT shaves, the last item I found that caused an issue was trying to face lather, so for now I bowl lather.
