The free time afforded me by this sabbatical allows me the luxury of some personal introspection. Everyone knows I’m a mad, ‘driven’ personality, but this is a great opportunity to try and moderate that behaviour. I’m going ‘all out’ to address not only the work/play balance, but also to take advantage of the travel and cultural opportunities open to me living in Europe.
An extended weekend in Vienna with my good friends the Bühlmanns and Jane at the end of October is a great start. And we do it in style!
