The last few weeks have been hectic to say the least. I don't think I've done much more than work, sleep, eat (when I can fit it in) and fly between Chicago and New York. When life gets this busy, I usually do a lot of escapist day dreaming about upcoming travel plans, morning walks on beautiful Perth beaches and my favourite holidays that lovely husband C. and I have taken.

One of my hands-down favourite holidays ever is the five day hike we did in the Northern Territory in Australia in August 2010 - the Jatbula Trail. It was the most incredibly amazing experience. The landscape was surreal at times, the colours were incredibly vivid and it was a joy to be without any sort of mobile reception. I was the most relaxed I'd ever been... after I got over my fear of running into a snake/crocodile/big spider/water buffalo or wild pig!
I work to live, not live to work so I use this day dreaming to remind myself of exactly why I work this hard - so I can see the world in my downtime. Where do you go in your head when you're day dreaming the day away?
