Who knew? I guess people didn’t see this one coming. Apparently, ever since the pandemic started, we seem to be working longer hours. To the point of exhaustion. At least, that’s what we are being told consistently through different research studies, articles, publications and what not. But does it hold? I mean, for those of us who … Continue reading Myth Busting – Are You Working Longer Hours while Remote / Distributed?
Continuing further along with the series of blog posts about busting myths with regards to remote / distributed work, I thought I’d cover today what has been one of my pet peeves from over the course of the last two decades and that, somehow, throughout the pandemic, it’s become perhaps a bit more poignant and … Continue reading Myth Busting – No Work / Life Balance In Remote / Distributed Work

Today is my last working day of 2016, before I go offline (from work) for my winter holidays till mid January next year. Somewhere in between, I don’t know just yet when, there will be a major announcement coming through that will explain what I will be doing throughout 2017 and beyond.

However, whenever someone would say ‘Calma Chicha’ over here in Gran Canaria, they … Continue reading Calma Chicha – Where Chill Out Meets Unconventional Contemporary Spanish Cuisine
This week there will be a bit of light blogging from yours truly since it’s one of those wonderfully weird weeks where multiple national bank holidays happen throughout the week, almost one after the other and for different reasons, so there is a great chance I will be spending most of the time offline rather … Continue reading Samsara – A Treat to All Senses
