Don’t really know what to do next with myself :(

So I’ve been thinking long and hard what should be my next carear step, and I honestly have no Idea 😦

This looka like a simple question – “What to do next with my life?” – but answer is very far from simple……

I’ve been working in hospitality for nearly 15 years now lately every day when I wake up I’m just not excited to go to work anymore. Somehow routine and boredom got into me. It could be as well that the whole industry have changed (not only during covid). People got more and more mean, they think of themselves more and more entitled to things. and that reflects restaurant and whole hospitality industry. It is Incredibly difcult to host someone who thinks they are entitled to everything, they want everything, and servers are more of a slaves rather than “servers”. It could be only in my part of the world but I strongly doubt that it is.

At least now I’ve managed to secure myself a job where I work roughly 40hrs a week which gives me quite a lot of free time. So far I was filling that free time with resting, motorcycle ride and looking for my inner peace and mindfulness 🙂

In the meantime I started learning a bit of YouTube creation and looking into website development – so far through WordPress only but I’m seariously thinking of starting HTML5 & JSS Courses. I dodn’t know.

From one side it feels boring – sitting in front of a computer, clicking away all day, mostly without contact with people …… (sometimes this feels like a huge plus :)) I’m not used to this at all, always working beetwen people, meeting new characters every day.

But on the other side it feels exciting as I will be “creating” new things. Even if it is a simple web page, full site or you tube channel it feels pretty good knowing that it will be out there for people to enjoy (or not) and it will be my creation.

I actually think that 15 years experiance from hospitality can be usefull as I’ve seen A Lot of people behaviours and different patterns. collected lots of opinions on a lot of useless staff so optimizing any kind of user interface might be easier now 🙂

And Biggest plus of it all is that it feels like this is sort of future proof skill at least for next decade.

Any how. WIll see in few months If I manage to stick to those goals. For now plan is to start learning and maybe secure part time internship somehwere by mid summer – It will be weird to be intern at nearly 40 years old but who cares 🙂

Till next time……….

Finaly got a new Bike :D

It finally happened. I got a new bike :D. It has been couple of months since I sold my Suzuki GS500 and even that it is winter and not the best riding weather the I missed riding a lot.  

Exactly why I sold the Suzuki I’ll share soon in separate review post. 

But let’s get to it. My new bike is…..

2021 Royal Enfield Himalayan (EURO 5) 

Initially I couldn’t decide on exactly which bike I want. And I know I wanted somethign different at first.

In the end I started looking on the bikes from Light/Mid range of Adventure bikes and choice was tough. Between the established brands of Kawasaki and BMW there was a new one of VOGE. Initially I wasn’t even considering the Royal Enfield. Not sure why… I think mainly as I never came across one in real life. Wasn’t even aware that they have something in the Adventure bike category. I actually went to see the Benelli bikes and as it turned out same dealer was selling Royal Enfield bikes too. And there it was. Rock Red 2021 Himalayan EURO 5. I immediately loved how it looked, and when I got on it, it just felt right. It felt like my bike. And the price was amazing. Only 6,000.00 euro for almost fully equipped bike. Navigation display, center stand, bash plate, bag holders. 3 years or 30,000 km warranty. It sounded almost perfect.  

Trying not to rush things and avoiding impulse buying I left the dealer to do some research. I compared it with BMW GS310, Kawasaki Versys 300 and Honda 500X. 

All the bikes had pluses and minuses. I actually test rode the Honda and BMW and don’t get me wrong. They felt like good bikes actually with more power and more modern looks they just didn’t feel like “my” bikes. Somehow I preferred the “tractor” like engine and the old looks. 

Online reviews were mixed with some build quality issues, relay problems and occasional suspension getting stuck. But number of positive reviews was astonishing. People just love this bike. Not only in India but it already has cult following in Europe with owner clubs and groups popping in everywhere. 

So I did went and bought it. It’s been only couple of weeks and 300km so far and the bike feels amazing. No major issues (apart of occasional stalling during first 100km) and I am extremely happy with my choice. 

For now You can see couple of my videos on the bike below. I will try to post full review soon. 

See You all next time 🙂
