Travelling is about being comfortable

 After the weekend trip to Budapest, it is time to recover.

I took a train on my way back. It is one of the most environmentally friendly ways to travel. But the AC wasn’t so strong compared to planes or busses. I wasn’t the happiest person in the world. And I dreamed of the rain I experience during the first day in Budapest.

This is the thing with political push to adopt trains. There must not only be the message of how good it is for the environment, but also the financial support to make the train trips more pleasant.

If there aren’t enough investments in the train systems, to be more comfortable and faster, all those efforts to reduce our carbon footprint will become just a wishful thinking.

This is another take away. Don’t listen to political messages, see what those politicians are actually doing.

Maybe we need more politicians to travel with trains to actually see a positive change in Europe.

The messy meeting

When you know there will be a messy meeting and there is nothing you can do about it, the best thing to do is to avoid it. Messy people produce messy meetings, and they take the time and the energy of everyone who is part of it. That is why instead of being part of this drama, find a better team and better meetings to invest your precious energy.

The recovery day

 What to do once all the presents are opened? Should we just move forward with our goals? As I wrote about recovery day after flying long distance. It is important to plan a recovery day after the holidays. This is your guilty free time.

New year preparations

 I stopped preparing for things since August this year. I decided to go with the flow. With no plans for the New Year, today I received an invitation to a party. Seems like not having any plan was the best plan in the end.
