Some days at the office, are tougher than others. The relative peacefulness and quietness of my day at the office has been constantly and regularly injected by the sound of drilling and hammering. Not sure what they are building upstairs, but I sure hope it’s a nice office for someone. It’s enough to give me a headache. And now, even when the noise has stopped, I can sorta kinda hear a background ringing in my ear. To be honest, it’s been quite disruptive. Makes me want to go home instead. Maybe I will.
An expat living abroad in Europe - an export really. Ten years on and I’m no longer the accidental tourist. Europe, UK, Australia, Singapore/Malaysia - I’ve either travelled extensively or lived there. I love travel - the journey, the history, the people, the adventure, the learning. Seeing the world with new eyes and just appreciating what is there. How far the journey I have come. My latest craze is hiking long distance trails - mainly along old monastic / pilgrimage routes. I love old buildings and it’s a way of connecting me with people from the past, their hopes and dreams. Travel taught me, that people are basically the same. And it is through food and culture that we come to have a dialogue. I am incredibly grateful. Thank you for spending some time with me. And do leave a comment so that I know you’ve been by.
