Taking a Break from Work

Hi Everyone!!

I’m back, back from our adventure on Shuna.

Those of you that read my blog or follow me on Twitter will know that I am a firm believer that a holiday should be a holiday.  No checking work emails, making work phone calls, taking paperwork or material to read.  Everyone needs a break and you’ll be back to work with a spring in your step and readiness of excitement if you do.

So just over a week ago I made preparations to leave my business, I turned off work emails on my phone and we set off on our adventure.  With a description as follows you’ll either be very excited or immediately turned off – I was very excited.

“a holiday on Shuna is a truly unique experience – imagine a holiday where there are no cars, no telephones, no roads, abundant wildlife at every turn and the romance of island life – all just 15 minutes from the mainland.  A holiday that gives you and your family time and space to relax together and enjoy our beautiful island and the surrounding seas in a boat which we provide. “

The drive was just stunning and imagine our delight when we arrived at the pier and saw this.

We were collected by boat and taken over to Shuna with all that we needed for a week.

The week on Shuna was just amazing.  Our house was just on the edge of the island, right by the pier and every morning I woke to breath taking scenery.  The island was free to explore either by foot, kayak or one of the 19 foot long aluminum hulled open assault crafts with a small outboard motor.  We were blessed with good weather and had fabulous daily adventures.  Every day we saw so much wildlife – deer, sea otters, cormorants, seals, pheasants.

It really was a truly wonderful break from it all.  Funnily the couple who ran the Holiday Lets took their holidays in cities, I would love to hear how you enjoy time away from your normal working life.

    Sounds like an idyllic ‘break’ from the hustle and bustle of normal working life, just what you needed!

    I personally love that kind of holiday too, getting away from everything, being somewhere remote and experiencing the elements. Makes me feel like going on another ‘Ray Mears’ type survival course again!
