In my real life role I work in IT. I’ve worked for several companies on several different projects including Disaster Recovery and Contingency Planning and one of the most consistent risks was that very few of them have ever tested their contingency plans and tested them as if it was a real disaster. They can spend hundreds of man hours writing these plans and testing them on paper but nothing beats a real live test which shows some simple and fundamental errors. I had one instance on a government site where they had full marks for the DR plans, all the boxes ticked you see, and when I eventually talked them into testing it over a bank holiday we fell over on the first hurdle because the security guards would only let authorised personnel access the classified backup tapes and they were all off outside normal working hours. The plan had the simple milestone of ‘Back up tapes will be delivered from offsite. Ring XXXX to arrange delivery.’ As you can imagine that went down well and it isn’t unusual most backup plans fall over when tested for the first time on silly things. I have several more examples but you get the picture.

Two days before we left Luang Prabang we were fortunate to meet a passionate and enthusiastic couple in their late forties / early fifties. They’re both retired working on a UN project to help establish a training program for guesthouse employees in Laos. They’ve been together for 30 years and have taken travel to be their pleasure and work lifestyle. Just last fall they were enjoying some Spanish wine in Granada and now are here in Laos working but they take weekend trips to see waterfalls and do other fun activities.

Summer vacations are much more than casual relaxation. As Alex Soojung-Kim Pang shows us in his book Rest: Why You Get More Done When You Work Less, “Work and rest aren’t opposites like black and white or good and evil. They’re more like different points on life’s wave.” You can develop a lot of skills while traveling on vacation, such as writing, photography, and blogging. That’s why we’ve compiled 15 of the best Travel Blogging WordPress themes of 2017.
