It’s been a long time since I’ve written a new post and I apologize for that. I unfortunately wasn’t able to travel this last year and time just goes by so quickly. This past year has actually been the longest amount of time I’ve ever stayed home in my life. I had my first whole winter in Buffalo, which was actually kind of nice.
The reason for my lack of travel, besides a new puppy I adore, is that I enrolled in graduate school last summer and have been working ridiculously hard ever since. After four years of being away from school, it was not totally easy to just jump back into it, but at the same time, it felt so right walking on campus again. I am finding happiness through learning, reading, writing, studying, creating, and working with incredible people. I feel stimulated and alive in ways I haven’t felt probably since graduating those years ago. I love to learn, which is one reason I love to travel. Sometimes it’s hard to find the balance in life, but I’m always working on that.
So, right now I’m sitting in southern Sweden and I just came back from a visit to Germany. It feels so good to be back in the travel mode. I love the rush of the airport, the feeling of stepping off a plane, and taking in the space and sense of somewhere new. It’s funny how something can be such a huge part of your life for so long and then with just a little time without it, you forget. But I think that makes it more magical when you experience that something again and start to remember and gain new moments.
I have a lot to share from my this trip and will be posting all about them soon!
Glad to be back 🙂
