After my last trip to Switzerland for work I was able to take a few days off to go to Madrid for my friends wedding. The entire weekend was spent relaxing in the sun and trying to disconnect and enjoy being around my friends. It was a very successful weekend.
However, all good things come to an end and after that weekend drew to a close I had to get back to work. I spent a week in the office and working from home before I had to hit the road again. This time I was back in Switzerland at Olympic Capital, Lausanne.
I was there to attend a two-day workshop, but due to the scheduling I had to arrive a day before and leave the day after. Not that I was complaining. As you can see from the photo above Lausanne is a beautiful place.
I had to attend the workshop which was pretty useful, but I also got the chance to visit and have dinner at the Olympic Museum. It’s recently re-opened after a refurbishment and it is quite a remarkable place. It’s full of memorabilia from both summer and winter games and has a detailed history of them both as well as talking about the media operations that surround them. I was fascinated by the place and I’d like to go back to spend more time looking around.
During this trip I also got to spend time catching with a friend who recently moved out to Lausanne for a new job, so it was a very successful trip from all sides.
I’ve visited the town a couple of times now and each time I’ve left having a good time there and thinking about returning. If only Switzerland wasn’t so expensive, I’d grab a camera and go for a holiday taking shots of all the stunning landscapes on offer.
I have a few weeks at home now before my next trip at the end of the month. It’s a trip I’m extremely excited about. At the end of October I’ll be attending my very first London Screenwriter’s Festival, where I aim to soak up as much information as possible. I’ve been looking forward to this since I bought my tickets in January and I can’t believe it’s almost here already.
Being at home for three weeks in a row is going to be a little strange but I’m looking forward to relaxing and doing some writing in my own space. It also gives me the chance to watch sport on TV rather than find out about the games afterwards, and gives me a rare opportunity to see my friends and family before heading back out on the road again.
Travelling is usually a great deal of fun, but it is quite nice to be home for a change.
