Days Like This…

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!

Dom and an orangutan... no jokes thanks


About domhall

I have spent the last 15 years juggling careers in education publishing, expedition leadership and safety training. It has involved a careful balancing act of dreams of expedition travel, a love of climbing, walking and the outdoors and the the realities of life - and the later has definitely come off worse. I've run an adventure travel and expedition training business and lived in the sometimes sunny Lake District. Having taken a year out to complete an MSc in Environmental Technology I am now working for The Conservation Volunteers, working on engaging communities in their local green spaces.
