No wonder why there’s been so little from me lately – this is time of the year when everything comes to a halt all over Europe. EU people are on holiday, everyone’s on holiday, everything runs at minimum speed.
Not that I blame anyone. I mean, people need more days off, not less – especially in the UK where there’s at least a Bank Holiday coming up next Monday, but too little else in terms of red days in the calendar.
I deliberately placed my own vacation in both July (which is the main vacation month in Sweden, where or readers are) and August (which is the main vacation monthe here), having made the mistake when I was new to journalism to try to work during that time of the year.
Nice though that was, I’m still finding things pretty slow around here.
