I had a week’s long service this week and nothing planned, other than my official starting of the Graduate Diploma studies. I hadn’t been away for a few years, so I figured why not. I could take one of my laptops and just study whilst away. It ended up being more study and not a lot of holiday unfortunately.
I searched online for somewhere to stay, unfortunately I was booking during school holidays, not my best timing, most things were booked. There was some Airbnb available, though I’ve never stayed in one to know the quality, nor am I sure I want to. A few hotels were available, though were quite expensive, so I decided to check out the RAC who I’d stayed with further down the state; they had something and it was at a good and discounted rate as a member.
Booked, I headed down a few days later for my three nights stay. The room was a simple studio room with kitchenette, perfect for me. Though families were staying here too, kids were generally quiet as kids go with families out roaming the region’s sights during the day. My room overlooked a great peppermint tree area and was quite serene.
My studies this week were more full-on, so working from a single screen slowed me down compared to multi screen, plus trying not to spend all my time indoors too. I managed heading out a few times, but also slight exhaustion through poor sleep compounded things. By Sunday, and having returned home, I’m only now finishing today what last week I’d finished by Thursday of that week. That said, it was nice for a bit of time away though hopefully time to see sights next time as a pretty region.
