Took 2 weeks of continuous leave from work. This wasn't much called for as such, because the work-load hasn't been too demanding for the past couple of months with a few minor releases and POCs at hand.
However, to take leaves and do nothing much except spend time with parents(after long!), getting back in shape and garnering new skill sets, seemed more valuable than letting the leaves lapse or to get them encashed at a paltry rate.
Too late to even think of this blog - it's just 2 days to the end of my vacation :=). Still, better late than never!
