One day I’m going to retreat to the south of France to write my book” How many times have I said that to myself, possibly to you? Too many. Time to take action!

Have registered to attend a writer’s retreat in Tuscany Italy and will follow with a six month sojourn somewhere in the south – to write, to dream, to explore. Would you like to come along? Well pour a wine, put your feet up, click on and join me…

Laugh as I attempt to master two foreign languages…No sir, I ordered an omelette not pig trotters! Oh! I thought this train went to Nice not Rome? Smile as I share stories about the locals, the food, the architecture and the culture of the little villages I will be calling home and enjoy a few visual feasts as I share the best of my happy snaps.

My lovely friend Jenny and I will complete our already planned exploration of Bruges, Barcelona and Paris and then I’ll head on down to my retreat. Up and away in May, and for me, back to earth in November.

As you know I am passionate about the work I do and the company I work for, one that thankfully values me enough to put their blessing on my sabbatical, therefore will back at the desk November 18th – rejuvenated, restored and reenergized. A huge thank you to Janice (my Leader) Tim (her Leader), Bridget (Leader to all) and the fab Queensland team for making this possible.

There’s a lot to do beforehand, a lot to experience while there and I plan to entertain you along the way…I do need to practice my writing skills after all and who knows, may even get published…or not…the thrill is in the journey.

Look out for my next post ‘List upon list upon list’

      Still trying to see how I can sneak aboard your trip…. though a personal journey of this magnitude deserves to be run solo! Look forward to enjoying via your blog x
