    I'm not much of a sharer when it comes to sharing personal life experiences online.

    Recently, I was away for a short trip to a hilly area with lots of trees, waterfalls (and leeches damn), with Absolutely No mobile networks working there!
    I'll Admit that It was kind of a forced vacation since I really didn't want to go. Instead, I wanted to stay back & work (I'm kind of workaholic, I work 7 days a week)

    Though it was a short trip of 3 days. I feel so much re-energized & crazy relaxed.. Even though the trip was physically exhausting!
    I didn't do anything extra ordinary It was just some trekking, visit to few waterfalls & bit of mountain climbing, I got back yesterday,

    Even though work is slightly backlogged, I feel like I can work 2x hard and with a free mind since I'm relaxed.

    Lesson Learned - Take time off, It really increases productivity!

    Same thing goes here. Returned 2 days ago from Amsterdam, and it was crazy!
    Looks like to live there (only live) you need around $5k or so, including the rent, bills, etc. Now, I'm trying to make that money passive every month, so that I can go there for few months/years, who knows :D

    That picture is relaxing by itself. I know how you feel. I, too, work seven days per week. I took a week off a few months back, came back with work piled up, and felt like I was Superman running through tasks. A better analogy would be "Taskmaster". Welcome back.
