“Friends, They who stand by you when you're hurt and who helped you feel not so lonely. Maybe they are worth being scared for and hoping for and living for. Maybe worth dying for too…”- Stephen King
I am back! It has been a month since I am here at my desk.
Over the last few weeks, hubby and I have been on an amazing journey over Italy, Tunisia and Greece. As planned, we have taken the train from Rome to Genoa, back to Rome through Pisa and took a 12-hour train ride to Sicily. We experienced the train going across the straits on a barge, then on tracts again when we reached the other side. After staying for a while in Palermo and enjoying the sites of the Mafia City, we sailed for 12 hours on board of Grimaldi Ferry across the ocean to Tunisia. From Tunis, we traveled thousands of miles in a rented car exploring Tunisia and visited Carthage, Sousse, Sfaz, Gabes, El-Jem, Tattoine and Matmata and traveled the barren Sahara dessert roads. After a week in Tunisia, we flew to Athens and visited the Acropolis and other famous historical sites. We also enjoyed a full-day island cruise and visited 3 of their pristine islands. From Athens, we flew back to KL through Rome where we again visited the Roman ruins and the Vatican City.
I am excited to be back in the office and surprisingly, everything is still the same. My room is still there, my table is still chaotic, even the old daily newspaper cuttings are piling high in the in-tray. When I took a close look at how much of my time was spent in this room doing activities that taxed me down, it was a real eye-opener to be away once in a while to rid my boredom and free my cluttered mind.
