Untypical news coming from me. I took a kind of a vacation. Yes, me who normally has this strange stupid habit of skipping every holiday more than few days. This might have something to do with the general job and life situation for our generation, though. Nevertheless, now I decided I simply deserved and needed this, and oh boy how good it feels! To have time to read and travel and cook and explore the surroundings, etc. Just for fun.
It’s a quite of an unusual state of mind for me, this vacation state of mind, and for not to shock myself I started with a simple staycation at home in the Bernese Oberland. Finishing the few books I took with me when moving here a year ago, and going through the New Yorkers and other magazines which have mainly piled up on my bedside table unread, while I was going through the work overload I had this spring. The weather has also been awesome, lucky me, and I’m taking the most out of the sunny days and the region, biking and hiking and swimming as much as possible. Bruises and scratches and tanned skin tell that fun I’ve had already.
The restless soul I am, I’m also dreaming of road trips, Italy, maybe surfing in Morocco too. And to really take this holiday to the next level I’ll fly to Spain next week, to have a proper getaway with the girls and tapas. Until that, I’ll continue chilling close to the coffee mug and my readings and writings. And the mountains, of course. Bernese Oberland is not a bad place for a staycation, not at all.
