"Pending RTW trip" Tomtt88's Profile
After working for so many years, I decided to a take a longish break, in fact, 3 months break to travel around the world. Discussed it with my girlfriend who also agreed to do the same too! (unsurprisngly ;-))
Next day, shot off a quick email to HR, and received an almost instant reply / confirmation that my 3 months sabbatical was approved! :-)
At Nov-05, I made an initial plans / initinerary, and we agreed the destinations & length of stay for each. Tickets was booked and paid for at Dec-05, just in time for me to wrap up my girlfriend's ticket for her Xmas present (I didn't tell her I booked/paid for the tickets!). Her initial impression wasn't great when I handed over her Xmas present :-0 , but that all changed when she opened it! :-)
