Off topic: How do you cope with post-vacational syndrome?
Thread poster: Anabel Martínez
I took my one-month vacation in July and came back in August. Work load in August is not so heavy, so I have plenty of time for gardening, swimming, reading and updating, while coming back to real world in a kind of “soft landing”. This is the second year I do this, and I am quite happy with it.

Holiday? Vacation? Um ... what's that?

I came back from my holiday in Alicante a month ago. I reckon I was in a similar situation to yours: I had very little work at the time of my arrival in Germany, although fortunately not for long which I am sure it is the very same thing that it will happen to you.
Take it easy and enjoy the time at your disposal, and if you can’t, try to expand your client base, sort up your glossaries or discover new features of your TM tool…
Anyway, I am pretty sure that when you are back to business and overloaded with deadlines, you will miss the post-vacational days.

Don't have a holiday...that should solve it.
Or think about those of us who haven't had and won't have any summer hols this year:-)
Uf, right now it feels like mid December even tho I'm on the Costa del Sol - I'm so snowed under with work.
Good to see you around again though
| Go to a powwow... || Aug 25, 2005 |
We had a really good powwow in Odense, Denmark last year, before the summer holiday.
This year it was after the holiday for most of us. Thanks to Jeanette, who invited us to her home, it was a really brilliant weekend. Quite as good as a holiday, but so inspiring that I was even glad to get back to work and try out some of the new ideas...
No powwow near you?? Propose one! as they say on the ProZ.com site
(It's hard work if you want it to succeed, but I can warmly recommend it!)
