3 Weeks Off – So I’m Going To Rome!

I finished my job on Friday. It was a sad day, as I’ve been there 5 1/2 years, but a new job had come up which was exactly what I was looking for. I asked if I could work my full notice period and be paid in lieu for my leave, but wasn’t allowed to, so I find myself with 3 weeks off.

I’ve already got a list of things to do – I need to have a clear out and visit relatives as well as getting on with things related to the festive season: finish my Christmas shopping; write my cards, go to a couple of Christmas get-togethers etc. Plenty to do, certainly, but it’s an unparalleled opportunity so I decided to bite the bullet and go on a solo city break.

I decided on Rome for a number of reasons – it’s not too far, I can see the main sites in a couple of days, flights are cheap and it’s perfect for a history and photography buff like me. I will confess to nerves though. I’ve never travelled alone before and there is a language barrier, although many people will speak at least some English. On the whole I’m excited and I think it will be a bit of an adventure, but there are definitely nerves!

Now to squeeze research into my list of things to do!

Apparently blogs need to cover a certain niche in order to attract readers. My aim is not to attract readers. I don't deny it would be nice not to just be spouting to myself, but the reason I set this blog up was to give myself somewhere to write down my thoughts. If anyone reads them, that's a bonus. This blog will cover a mix of things - anything that comes to mind that I want to write about. I make no promises about how often I will publish new content.
