I just returned from 2 weeks in Europe, 1 week of which we spent in an 11th/14th century chateau south of the Loire. It’s heavenly to live the life of the French gentry. Beautiful surroundings, nothing much to do except go to the market (and the charcuterie, and the boulangerie), cook, eat, drink, hike, bike, swim, read and visit the occasional chateau or ruin.
Coming back into work in the Bay Area this morning, back into the intensity of a search startup, was hard. I highly recommend escaping to the rural lifestyle for a while as a means to maintain sanity when running a young company.
