My confession

update your blog



I confess, I’ve been a very bad blogger.  Its been six weeks since my last post. Just shameful!

And what a hectic six weeks it has been. I feel like I’m still catching my breath. I do have a good excuse though. Just as I’d gotten into the rhythm of blogging regularly, I started a new job in October and have been crazy busy since then. I have a lot more responsibility these days and working a lot after hours means less time for blogging 🙁

The positive side is that I’ve been travelling a fair bit for work. This last month has taken me to Delhi, Abuja and Doha, 3 very contrasting cities. I seem to be in a constant state of culture shock. The downside is that I feel like I’m missing out on all the fun stuff happening at home, and spending time with friends and family.

I always envied those people who travelled for work lots. I don’t really anymore. Of course its awesome to get to travel on a corporate budget and get to experience new places.  However, work trips are busy and tiring. Being away from home lots can also be lonely. Not to mention that you actually have to work, and there’s always heaps of stuff to catch up on when you’re back in the office.

Truth is there’s little time between meetings and conferencing to do the kind of exploring I’d like to.  I’ve merely had a glimpse of the cities I’ve visited,  sometimes barely getting out of the hotel. I’ve hardly even managed to take any photos.  Not that I’m complaining. The truth is that business travel isn’t as glamourous as I thought it would be.

So, I’m back home for the next 2 weeks before a well-deserved  holiday.  I”ve always been a person for active holidays preferring to balance beach-time with exploring and fun activities. Now I can’t wait to veg out on a beach with a good book.    I never thought I was the person for a lazy beach holiday, but now I honestly can’t think of anything better.

This is the beach I’m planning on growing some roots on. Can you guess where it is?
