Change as Good as a Rest

I had the pleasure of going to Lincoln recently (about 2 hours outside London) for the Lincoln Book Festival, where Total-E-Bound was kicking off proceedings.     

 Apart from the misery that is rail travel, I greatly enjoyed the brief sojourn. Not only was Ladies’ Night organised by TEB a great event, which raised a significant amount of money for a fantastic cause (Lincoln Women’s Aid) but it was nice to be out of London, if only for a short time.    

I am one of these people that have, in the past, thought of London as a bit of a security blanket, not needing anything else as long as I was within its confines. Occasional trips to some outlying areas, such as Surrey, were doable, but anywhere further than that was rare and required forward planning—inoculations and passport renewal.

Of late, I have found this to be quite a flawed concept—maybe I’m growing up!—as it was like a breath of fresh air. Did I still have a massive amount of work to do? Of course, I did, but the day off in a new area truly felt like a break rather than skiving like when I’m at home.

No longer am I content to remain in London like it is the centre of the world, not when there are places to go and explore—wide open spaces calling out. I live in a country that I have barely discovered and that is something I definitely have to change and make sure I travel more…all in the name of a good rest.
