Maybe it’s just that this is all still new and exciting for me, but I have to say that my first few weeks as a UK based freelancer have been wonderful. And whether it’s the novelty or not, there are definitely some perks to this self-employed life.
Well, it happened. I finally did what I had been threatening to do for many months and left La Plagne! I packed my bags, boarded a plane and headed back to the UK in search of a new place to base myself.
And just like that, the summer is over. The chairlifts are closed, the mountain bikers have packed up their mud-splattered gear, the bars have thrown their closing parties and shut their doors. Once again, this resort town became deserted almost overnight.
On my About page, I mentioned that I have a ‘To Be Travelled’ list in my head that just keeps growing longer and longer. I stand very little chance of completing it in one lifetime, but I enjoy dreaming of those destinations and planning my future visits there. However, due to COVID, I have not had the opportunity to check anywhere off my list and now, thanks to this new job of mine, the list is growing to somewhat alarming proportions.
For someone who loves being on the move and always planning the next adventure, the enforced stillness of the last year and a half has been rather strange.
