Well, already it seems like my two-week holiday happened months ago, when in fact I have only been home for about 10 days! But the memory remains. And it was amazing. Two weeks of sun, the rediscovery of a love for SCUBA Diving and, most importantly, no work whatsoever !
This was my first proper “sunny destination” holiday since I started my business, some five years ago, and whilst there it saddened me to think that such a long time had passed without a proper break. Such is the draw and the sense of responsibility for what had been a new business, it’s easy to allow your work-life balance to fall off kilter.
But, I came back with a renewed sense of balance, feeling emotionally refreshed and ready to greet the backlog. In honesty, I feel like I need another holiday to recharge the physical batteries – nitrogen build up from such a large number of dives after such a long break takes its toll !
One of the other things I took a break from was photography – oh, the irony ! That said, there were a few opportunities for some special stuff, and so here, for your viewing delight, is a taster. All of these were taken early on, at Papagayo, the Southern most point of Lanzarote, overlooking the neighbouring island of Fuertaventura.
Anybody who knows me well, knows that I love, love, love clouds and silhouettes … and if they can be mixed, well, all the better:
Me, jumping over Fuertaventura for a bit of fun …
On the next trip, hopefully later this year, I hope to be doing some underwater photography too !
