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.
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…
This is a less bookish approach than I’m used to take on the blog but since the amazing Bibi from Bibi’s Book Blog tagged me I’m gonna do it! The theme is love and romance and although I’m not a big fan of those for myself I do enjoy reading them
Thank the person who nominated you to participate.
(Not gonna lie, that’d be a kick ass title for a book) Alas, this is a rare instance of a non-book-related post
The other day on twitter I saw debate over wich kind of immigrant people from the US are “fine” “taking in” (meaning they’d most likely not tear-gas their families of kidnap their children) And me, having been a child immigrant myself, I decided to write a thing on here, just to get it off of my chest.
This was also motivated by my own country’s issues with immigration, particularly with Venezuelan refugees.
I’ll be going into a sort-of-but-not-really-a-book buying ban because…
I’m going to Europe!*
More exactly I’ll be traveling to England, Scotland, Ireland and Spain. It’s a trip that I’ve been meaning to take since forever and I finally have enough money and time. The thing is that I don’t have much money so to save as much as I can I decided to limit all my expenses, this, sadly, includes books. For the forseeable future I’ll buy only one book each month (from the 2019 new releases) and the rest of books I’ll read will be from those I already own (working to Beat The Backlist)
The plan is to visit London, Edinburgh, Dublin, and Galway in two weeks (sleep is for the weak) and then spend a full week in Spain with all my old friends. I’ll be traveling with my little sister and the plan is to sleep in hostels and walk all day , seeing as much as possible. I also have a special itinerary of all the literary places I want to see while we’re there and I’ll try to upload photos on here.
There’s a chance we’ll be traveling as soon as next month so if I suddenly drop out the face of the Earth… well, you know where to find me.
Also, if you have any suggestions of places we should visit while on those cities they are more than welcome!
