Work-life balance

While WWOOFing in the farm, sometimes it’s easy to lose track of time while working in the fields. The church bell rings at noon and at 6pm daily, and that’s our cue to stop work. I’d always remember Stéphane saying, “You can stop when the bell rings. Don’t work for too long.” No one ever said that to me in the corporate world! In fact, most employers expect you to stay past your official working hours. What a contrast!

Stéphane and Françoise also gave me the weekends off, so I could go hiking or visit neighbouring villages. Here are some photos from my hike:
