I'm Back!

The last time that I blogged was early summer. Seriously? It has been an accumulation of many things: work, commuting (how I miss a car!) and just the general avoidance of hopping onto my computer once more after a long day at my desk. But in the past few months I’ve gotten such kind emails from people checking in, that I realized how much I missed a little piece of my day - just for me - to share this big expat adventure I’m on.

So, what has happened since May? 

Steven and I went to Greece for the first time! We did an eight day Mediterranean cruise starting in Athens, through Santorini, Mykonos, Kusadasi and ending in the birthplace of pizza – Naples, Italy. To sum it up, it was incredibly romantic. Definitely a few posts dedicated to my newfound love for Greece (and cruises too) coming soon.

My mom came to visit us and I took her to Milan and Lake Como to celebrate her one-year anniversary beating breast cancer. So proud of her. We stayed here which was just close enough to the amazing shopping scene but far away enough to feel relaxed.

Steven got a new job, which sent him to the UK for three long weeks for training. I visited him for a quick weekend in Manchester and found the best burger in Europe here.

I ran in the Amsterdam Half Marathon which was one of the longest, most painful miles this ex-running lover has ever experienced. My running shoes are definitely hung up for a while now.

It’s good to be back blogging – and looking forward to checking in more regularly from now on!

  6. I had taken a break from my blog as well and didn't know how much I missed it until I looked back at posts and realized how happy I was that I had kept a record of everything! Glad you're back :)
