Last week I attended DeliverConf in Manchester, a conference all about project delivery or in other words “a conference for people who strive to lead, inspire and deliver value with their teams”. It had been a couple of full on weeks, so going to a city I’ve never been before and getting the opportunity to get a fresh perspective on things were certainly welcome.
In my last blog post I announced that this year we are going to travel across South East Asia. Doing something like that requires a lot of planning, of course, and so I thought I’d share what we are doing to prep for the big trip. Any tips and tricks are very much welcome (comment below!).
My very first blog post last year was about my goals for 2017. I managed to achieve them more or less, though half way through the year, I realised that some of the things I had put on my list didn’t have high priority anymore and they started to become a chore rather than something I liked doing. This is why I am not going to set hard goals per se. Rather, I am aiming to change or improve a few things this year.
Yes, I am following the trend of sappy “goodbye 2017” posts, cause it’s good for ya, cathartic and, boy, have I done a lot this year!
As with anything, you tend to forget things that happened 1 month ago, don’t even try to pull out memories from 11 months ago. So instead of sipping on some gin, I went through my photos and blog posts to remind myself what I have been up to.
This year we’re spending the holidays in Leipzig, Germany. We decided it would be a smaller round compared to last year when we got both the German and Swedish side together in Fitou.
I like this time of year because for me it represents quiet, cosy days and nights with yummy home cooked food, movies and lots of reading and sleeping.
A couple of weeks ago I was in New York for a few days. It was a bit of a spontaneous decision, as we had all our trips for this year planned to coordinate our time around our house renovation.
