When I plan my annual trip, privately, and once confirmed send a global message to my co-workers announcing that I’ll be out of the office, some frown upon the fact, that I choose to travel. Although I respect their opinion, I cannot for the life of me understand how they go an entire year, without taking a single day off from work other than the usual weekends and company sponsored holidays.
The ten days I spend away from the norm, not only revives my soul, it helps me think, plan and make a list of goals I would like to accomplish in the upcoming year. Not to mention the fact, gives me the courage to push for what I really want out of life. Call me crazy, but how do people go on, bypassing any type of vacation and saving their earned time off for a rainy day instead?
On my last and only day in Paris to catch a flight back to the U.S. the sun came out miraculously from a week or more of rainy weather throughout parts of Europe and I thanked the heavens above for allowing me to see Paris, without rain, for the first time in the longest while.
Paris is where I want to be someday. I know this in my heart. I think about making the drastic move every day and I feel, the dream will turn into a reality as soon as the time is right.
