The Joy of Anticipation or Planning Your Annual Holiday Being in charge of a business often means you tend to neglect your own holiday needs. Over the years, the most memorable breaks have been the ones we planned and looked forward to. A decision was made, months out, choosing a time slot in what for us was a quiet time of the year. Itineraries were developed, money set aside, flights booked and accommodation chosen. Then, we sat back and looked forward to the time we packed our bags and were on our way. From then on it didn’t matter what happened, how busy or tired we became, what problems arose, we were going to have a break and the feeling of happiness in the decision and certainty was there buoying us up, no matter what happened in the meantime.
It is the beginning of what is officially winter when we enjoy wearing our winter clothes at night but the days are glorious, warming up and wind free. George will spend loads of time gardening and the maintenance guys will enjoy the outdoors and not need to seek shade. Guests will be noted trekking off to the Kondallila Falls or, wandering stick and picnic in hand, exploring the bush on the way to the Obi Obi Gorge and The Lake Baroon Lookouts.
