Traveling and Working do not mix

I do not know how people do it!

Work and travel in the same time!

When I travel somewhere I would love to get to see everything to do with that place, but how can you do that when you are supposed to work 8 hours a day (at least)?

And how are you supposed to do that when you have nothing but work on your mind?

I got to find another job, or a better way to time manage my time.

Or just to chillax….

I really need to relax.

5 days to go and nothing yet.

5 days to go and nothing yet.

5 days to go for Mother’s day and I did not get my mum a thing yet.

I have many ideas, and one of them seems to favorable by her, but I did not make a move to get it.


I hate the notion that I have to get someone a gift and it has to be something they like :S

Why can’t I just ask her what she wants? That way I make sure I get her something she likes, and she doesn’t have to pretend she likes it.

Mother’s Day Preparations

As every year; March the 21st marks the day for Mother’s day here in Egypt.

Preparing for it, is usually easy, bring a cake, bring some flowers, and make some salty treats.

Now for the gift…. that is definitely the hard part.

This year I want to do something special for my Mum.
Any recommendations? Any thoughts?
