Where have I been? What have I been doing? Why the silence? Why the distance?
Only a major life change/decision could keep me so preoccupied, and it has.
The next chapter of my life will begin next week when I move to Budapest.
That’s right, I am moving to Budapest!
Life never turns out the way you think it will.
The offer of relocation came from the day job. After a lot of deliberation, surprise, awe, joy, puzzlement, musing, major excitement, etc. etc. I decided to go.
It was the only decision I could make. No regrets. No wondering what if.
There will be ups. There will be downs. There will be the Danube and Margaret Island, there will be rose shaped ice creams and thermal spas, there will be a proper winter and a beautiful summer, and there will be enough culture and history to hopefully keep the downs at bay. I spent four days there in May and loved it. I hope living there will be just as magical.
I am moving to Budapest. Wish me luck and if you are ever there, let me know!
