There’s something super-exciting about putting on the “out of office” on your work email.
I’ve spent the last couple of days going through some of the practical considerations of my planned leave, such as making a list of everything that needs to be done while I’m away, sending emails in preparation, and making notes for (and chatting with) the person filling in while I’m away.
But when it comes to actually putting the alert on, and setting up the start and finish dates, it feels oh so good.
I’m taking a few days off this week, in anticipation of a forthcoming overseas holiday. The next few days will probably involve getting up later than usual, a few swims, and packing.
Oh, actually I don’t need to worry about the packing, as that’s mostly done.
I’ve been planning this trip for months, and I can’t believe it’s finally here! In a few short days, I’ll be jetting off to Cambodia and Vietnam, two countries that have been on my bucket list for years. I’m travelling with a couple of friends on a small group tour we found on TripADeal which we think is extraordinarily good value. https://www.tripadeal.com.au/deals/4559-vietnam-cambodia-discovery
I’ve been doing a lot of research on both countries (though mostly more on Vietnam, since that’s where the bulk of the trip will be). I’ve also started doing Vietnamese on Duolingo. OMG, it’s a lot harder than Swedish!!
I’ll be sure to post updates on my blog as I travel. Unlike the last couple of years which has mostly involved travel to Lismore for family reasons, this is looking like great fun.
