This is not a smug travel blog. We can all agree that a regular commute to London is not something to feel excited about, but; it was those journeys which inspired this post.

This time last week I was arriving for a weekend retreat.

I’m sure I’m not alone in struggling to justify time off and be utterly ‘selfish’ and take time to myself. Despite the challenges, I’ve overcome them and attended retreats at least once a year for the last 10 yea...
