Countryside Holiday

I took this photo in July 2011 when we drove to the countryside for a day of rest.

I live in one of the largest city in the world, and I work very hard. Though  love my life in the city and my work, I crave for a countryside holiday from time to time. This time, I pray for a real long break!

Life in a big city, though fast and convenient, sucks a lot of my natural energy. It's not just the demand from work but more so the noise and air pollution; not to mention the morally polluted sights you get to see everyday in a fast-growing modern city. Do I need to mention the heavy traffic jam, too? You bet, I'm sounding really needing a break ASAP!

I took this photo when I thought I lost my daughter and her Dad
until I found them on this boat.
Now that school holiday is coming up, it would be the best time to plan a family get-away. I know the children are needing it as much as I do. They surely want to forget school for a bit and just had fun out in the sun or spending lazy days indoor with lots of movies to watch and board games to win. My children love school but I think they like school holidays more :-)

My littlest girl always finds nature amusing.
Holiday doesn't have have to be expensive. It only needs careful and creative planning, and if you're resourceful, you'll find inexpensive deals for holiday cottages. Even if you couldn't find cheaper deals, I'm sure you and your family deserve the most expensive holiday you can afford. And I'm trying to convince myself here.

"Rest when you're weary. 
Refresh and renew yourself, your
body, your mind, your spirit. 
Then get back to work."

-- Ralph Marston
