How to Easily Get the Best Out of Your Next Holiday

It is probably stating the obvious, but most people love to take holidays. They plan them months or even a year or more in advance, then dream about them and anticipate their getaway as the time gets nearer and nearer. This is totally understandable, as unfortunately many people are not always doing the job that they love, or even worse, they downright hate their work.
Holidays are a way to escape from the norm and are the perfect opportunity to forget about the humdrum boredom of normal day to day life such as the daily commute, sitting in a miserable office for eight hours, dealing with workplace politics and having to the listen to the same monotonous conversations with colleagues.



Even if you truly love your work and are generally enjoying life, a vacation to see and experience somewhere new is never a bad thing. The very best jobs can become stressful from time to time, so getting away is a chance to reset, free your mind from worry and also de-stress.

Learning Spanish In 2013 - Two Week Progress

As I wrote in my article New Year’s Resolutions – Learn A New Language In 2013 | Suck My Trend it is the goal of many people to learn a new language for many reasons. What better time to begin to work towards this goal than at the start of the new year. This is exactly what I am aiming to achieve this year.

Although I learnt Spanish for four years back in Secondary School, I can honestly say that I only remember the very basics. I would really love to speak Spanish with confidence and fluency though and have decided to really give this a real try this year. We are two weeks into 2013 and so far so good, I am actually sticking to this resolution.

As my article stated there are many different methods that can be used to improve and enhance the learning of a new language. I am trying a number of different approaches. I am listening to Spanish radio online with lots of Spanish music, I will try and watch as many (decent) Spanish language films as possible, I have been learning online with the excellent www.duolingo.com, and then putting my Spanish speaking into practise with my girlfriend. I know it is never easy learning a language and it definitely takes effort, but then it is often the things that take the most effort that are the most rewarding.

Good luck to anyone learning a new language and with all your New Year's Resolutions in general!

Adios y buena suerte!
