That’s all, folks, the 2014 blogging year has come to an end for me. This is the final (very short) post of the year and I will be flying out for my winter holidays tomorrow. Being away from Glasgow means that there will be 2+ weeks of blog inactivity, but it also means that when I come back, I will have lots to write about.
The two upcoming weeks are planned as follows: Bordeaux for 5 days to visit old friends, Prague for 2.5 days, Cesky Krumlov for one day, Budapest for 3.5 days, Paris for 4 days, then back to Glasgow for the beginning of 2015.
It’s been a while since I’ve travelled and I feel that I might have “lost touch” with the side of me that loved travel. I am now a bit nervous because Prague, Cesky Krumlov, and Budapest will all be done alone while carrying a relatively large piece of luggage. Then I think back at all the times I’ve travelled alone and wonder why I am even nervous. I should be excited, if anything, and I AM! The two-week trip will be, up till now, the longest trip within Europe away from a “home base”, that is, Bordeaux, Louvain-la-Neuve, and now Glasgow. Previous trips have been either day trips, weekend trips, or at the longest, a week trip. Canada and China don’t count. Then again, half of this upcoming trip is sort of like going back “home” (Bordeaux and dare I say…Paris) so the real new travel is only the week in the Czech Republic and Hungary. So much to look forward to!
I guess I am still at a state of instability because I’ve only been in Glasgow for a little more than a month and a half, and I’m flying out already. I’ve moved into my new flat for 10 days and I will be away for two weeks, so coming back will feel like moving in all over again! Let’s just say that “settling down” won’t feel real until 2015 😛
Well, I’m off to finish off some last-minute packing. Enjoy your holidays, and I’ll see you in 2015!
