I have done no blogging over the last month or so as my wife and I have been taking a long vacation which included a spell of 12 days without any Internet connection while I was sailing in a small ship across the Atlantic from San Juan in Puerto Rico to Malaga in Spain. The rest of the time has been spent in Seville in Spain, Paris, France, and ending in England, where I am visiting family.
I found to my astonishment that I could manage quite well without being on the Internet – and more astonishingly, that the world was even better able to manage without me. So I’m assuming you haven’t missed me. However, I am about to restart blogging, with a post about the importance of culture in building an effective learning environment immediately following this post.
In the meantime, as much for my pleasure as yours, here are a few illustrated highlights of the trip, which was a 70th birthday present for my wife.
Ah, well, it was nice while it lasted. The next post will be much more serious, on culture and learning environments.
