I have to confess that I sometimes complain about being busy – which is particularly ironic as there is nothing on earth I hate more – than being bored…
But this week reminded me how I love to be rushing about meeting such interesting people and doing interesting things.
The day started at Oxford Uni working with an extremely interesting and experienced group of Fieldworkers – running a training course which had some really interesting and constructive chat about Fieldwork Safety.
The course itself was interspersed with phone enquiries about new courses and, in particular, a chap looking to send his son off to explore Irian Jaya, and wanting to chat to me about the idea.
Finally I rushed off from Oxford to Reading University to speak at a Travel Society arranged event where I met more keen travel enthusiasts looking for their next adventure.
I retired to my hotel room with a resolution not to complain about my busy life!
