Where I’ve been and where I’ll be

…it’s been a while

I took a bit of a break from blogging but now I’m back, if with a bit less frequency than before, because…

I’M MOVING TO SCOTLAND

This Sunday I’ll be boarding a plane to London, then a train to Edinburgh, where I’ll be staying for the forseeable future!

I’ve been planning this move for a whole year and I can’t believe it’s actually happening.

Last year I went with my sister on a trip of the isles and fell in love with Scotland, when I came back to Argentina it was with the conviction that I’d move permanently there on 2020. I worked and saved during the entire year and now here I am.Resultado de imagen de edinburgh gif

I’ve been reading a lot but most of the books were about travel and/or moving abroad. I may make a wrap up of all the books I used in the future (if you’d all be interested in that)

The point is that my life is changing BIG TIME. I’ll be living an ocean away from my family and completely on my own for the first time and it will be an experience.

I promise to try and update as often as possible but if I dissapear for two or three weeks at a time, don’t worry I’m probably just trying to figure out how to go grocery shopping or something like that…

  1. Ohhh, exciting!! My parents sold their house in the U.S. recently and now they are living in UAE so my dad can retire in a few years. So I’m oceans away from them too. I already had my own apartment and all that here though so that kind of helps. I’d be interested in hearing about your experience!

    1. Thank you! It’s so weird to think that I can’t call them and they’ll be there. Like, mom won’t cook for me and dad won’t pick me up when I can’t drive but it’s also kind of freeing, like I’m more my own person now. If that makes sense
      How have you been handling all the new responsibilities?

      1. I know, for me there’s a ten hour time zone difference between us. And a 32 hour plane ride or something like that.

        And I feel the same now. I had more responsibilities already. Just don’t have a house three hours away to visit once a month and I can’t be on their cable apps anymore on my Roku stick which is like a Fire stick for you I think. I just got a cable streaming app today to get the channel I wanted instead. That was the only different thing now. I had been on my own for two years now but now family is already 8 hours away in the U.S. I don’t want to pay for actual cable so I don’t have real cable. Just Hulu and the channel I wanted. And Netflix. Idk if you heard of Hulu and Netflix.

        I also had to tell my mom to not start worrying about me being hours away from family because I knew how to be on my own already. She overworries.

      2. Oh my god, you are so much further away. I thought a 13 hour plane ride was hard… I still use my family’s netflix account of my phone for now but I’m not gonna pay for cable either.
        My mom also overworries, I try to tell her that there’s a lot of people on the exact same situation as me but that’s just what mother do, I guess..

      3. Any amount of long distance is hard. My mom lives 8 hours away but my stepmom and dad are the ones that aren’t in the country and oceans away. I think my family here in my country now expects me to pack up and leave my state I’m in to be closer to them now, but it’s not that easy sadly. I hope your move goes well and you are adjusting, etc. etc. That is still brave!

        Oh I use my family’s Netflix account too! But it’s still nice only paying for what I want streaming cable wise.

        And yeah, parents in general do that.
