Continuing on from the last blog about Bali, here is the second lesson I learnt while I was on my honeymoon. Bali is a very hot and humid country (or it was when I was there). Just walking around was enough to break out into a sweat and I’m not very keen on sweating. Obviously I cut right back on any exercise that didn’t take place in a swimming pool. But you can’t see an island from within a hotel, so inevitably we had to walk. Here in the UK, I’ve always prided myself on being a fast walker. I walk with purpose and stride out to reach my destination as fast as possible. My theory was that by getting there faster, I’d be fitter and more efficient.
I started writing this blog after the UK referendum back in June, where the result was very close - just over half the people who voted, chose the option to leave the EU. The initial response to the result was shock by much of the country, followed by anger towards the people who voted differently from themselves. What saddened me then is that our country seemed to have become so divided over the lead up to the referendum. There was so much anger on both sides against those who had a different opinion. Now 4 months later, that anger is still present. We've had major division within one of our main political parties over its leadership and now a high court case questioning the legalities of invoking Article 50 which starts the process of leaving the EU.
