Today is a day at home from me, away from the hustle and bustle of what everyday life has become. One of the advantages of working from home, and for yourself, is that you can set your own schedule, within reason anyway.
I’ve always been a bit of an independent spirit, so working for myself seemed like a natural fit. Having spent around 13-14 years working in hotels, I’m now taking the time to explore new things that interest and excite me, and one of those things is a bit of self reflection right here on my blog.
I do have a few tasks that I want to complete today, one of which is planning my travels in 2019. Places I want to visit include:
- Oslo, Norway – for a return visit after I spent a week there this year
- Bergen, Norway – at least twice – to visit my Great Aunt and Uncle, and the rest of my family
- London – at least three or four times – to visit my brother, who now lives there. He’ll be visiting home three or four times as well, so that’s nearly once a month one of us will be up or down there.
- County Mayo, Ireland – where my Grandfather is from
- Dublin, Ireland – for a short break
With the amount that I travel it’s also important for me to have a job/career that allows me to be mobile, work from where I am and be able to plan my own diary accordingly. I’ve found that self employment gives me all of the above and more, and although it is difficult at times, on balance it works well for me.
