A very overdue holiday

A very overdue holiday

cruise

By the time you read this, I’ll hopefully be all checked in to my honeymoon cruise with my new hubby and preparing to sail around places like Oslo, St Petersberg and Tallin for a whole 13 days. Hopefully with a ridiculous cocktail in my hand. Bliss.

I’ve been on a few 3-4 day breaks over the last few years, but this is the first proper holiday I’ve been on in over five years – and the husband’s first in over a decade. To say it’s overdue is an overstatement. Not least because I haven’t been practicing what I preach about taking breaks.

The very best bit? There will be no wifi and very little signal. So I really won’t be able to work while I’m away. My iPhone will be getting a proper break too. While this wasn’t the only reason we went for a cruise (hello unlimited buffet and onboard crazy golf), it’s certainly a great perk.

I’ve got a couple of posts scheduled to go up over the next couple of weeks, so it won’t be entirely quiet here. And I’m sure I’ll be back with a notebook full of post ideas.

When was the last time you took a proper holiday from freelancing?

    Hope you have an amazing time! I think the last time I had a complete break from work, without checking emails at all etc. was probably back when I was employed!! I did go to America a couple of years ago and just checked my emails a couple of times, but I do feel that if I go away longer than a weekend I have to just have a little check of emails etc. to make sure everything is ok! So bad, I really need to have a proper switch off.

      Same way, Emily. I won’t be able to go away for a while because of my partner’s caring responsibilities, so in the mean time I am training up my VAs to cover email for me while I’m gone.
