A New Country, A New Adventure!

3 Mar

Three weeks ago, I moved to a new country. I packed all of my essentials into one suitcase and set off to start a new life. The lifestyle in my new environment is different to the one I’m used to in one of the world’s central capitals, which means that I have felt a bit lost and confused at times. However, once I remind myself of the reasons for which I decided to move,  I am able to see what a wonderful and exciting opportunity this is.

I am here to…

  • be with the person I love
  • be independent
  • have a calmer lifestyle
  • be closer to nature
  • discover a new place
  • discover a different way of living
  • meet new people
  • lead a more active and outdoor lifestyle
  • have more fresh air
  • grow my own flowers and herbs (in the outdoor space that I now have)
  • be in a warmer climate
  • cycle
  • spend time in the countryside
  • buy fresh food from local producers
  • …and so – eat better food
  • have a new challenge (of starting life in a new place)
  • go on road trips
  • take evening walks on the beach
  • lead a simpler life

Let this adventure begin!

    How exciting for you – and yes, a little scary. I too was supposed to be moving to a warm beach just about now, but life’s what happens when you’re making other plans. Please do share you experiences, and keeping Loving Out Loud.

      Thank you very much. Yes, it took some time for me to organise this move, so I completely understand about life getting in the way of plans! I hope you will be able to move to that warm beach sometime soon 🙂

    Oh that’s so exiting! I’m sure it will turn out to be a fantastic experience, and after reading your ‘list’, well, how could it not? 🙂 Lots of Love and Hugs!

      Thank you! I will certainly try and do the best I can to make this a fantastic experience -after all, that’s the best we can do! 🙂

    It sounds like you have a lot of clarity about this move. Clarity is good. Hope it all works out the way you plan.

      Thank you! Although 90% of it was gut-feeling rather than clarity 😉

      Thank you! It is actually with the help of Google translate that I managed to read your page 😉 It’s not Spain that I moved to, but I love the country and will definitely be visiting it again soon. Thank you for your comment.
