    It’s the last day of a two week holiday in the sun and your mind has turned to the first day back at work...the bursting email inbox, the office chit-chat, your flickering computer screen and let’s not even mention the omen of all omens... excel spreadsheets; a state of panic takes over you (with the exception of really looking forward to a decent bacon sandwich and a cup of tea) how can you delay your time abroad?

I’ve been living here on and off since 2010 (more, lately, now that I am no longer completely nomadic).
