I had an offer from my tango teacher friend to join her in
Germany and travel with her and teach for a while. This was a tempting offer but was still not financial enough to do it comfortably but also doubted my ability to do it and make money from it. [I really need to work on my self-confidence].
A friend was returning from Buenos Aires and we got chatting and she wanted to go to Queensland and visit her dad. My current contract had ended so I was between jobs. I offered to pick her up at the airport and drive her up north for the visit, why not? It has been awhile since my last holiday and I wanted to relax a little. So it was on I will pick her up in a week and go for a drive, it is only 1200 Km’s.
I had an interview for another short term contract and was offered the position, the timing works out well, I start 2 days after I return from Queensland. I can’t ask for better than that. “You always get what you ask for, just not how you expect it”
While in Queensland I visited some family for a few hours and then continued to my friends dads place. While we were there we went for a dance and some site seeing, I caught up with some friends and relaxed. I went to a sit down 4 course wine tasting meal at about a third of the price because the friends cousin knew the organizer and wanted to fill the last few seats. Well, I can say it was a lovely relaxing night.
