soon-to-be on holiday

It's been... a week. PageYourself entered the big leagues and I spearheaded the prep and celebratory efforts en anglais. Exciting, huh? Stressful, too. I've been more than hoping for a holiday (in the UK-sense, thus, a vacation). And since I haven't gotten away since August, even a 48-hour change of scenery will suffice. Luckily, I have friends like Lara with family in Brussels who invited us to visit this weekend. Jackpot. One day, when I'm no longer living in Europe, I'm going to miss the ease with which I can now hop across borders. I mean, just look at the infographic below. Even overworked, overtired, and uninspired Brits seem to have it made:

Talk about Superbreak City Breaks! Luckily, there are options for US-based friends, too :) fellow students can win a stay in Europe and everyone can afford to get outside more. May I also suggest playing tourist in your own city? It's what I've been trying to do in Paris as my time here decreases--although I won't graduate until May, thesis research will keep me in New York and London for a while... not that I'm complaining, of course. There'll always be "stuff," but life can be an awfully great adventure when we let it be.


  1. oh to play tourist in Paris - my dream.

  2. Wow, this is me right here! I am extremely tired and work and worn out. I've been trying to think of a place to go, I don't want to spend too much money but I would like to get out of the country for a week or so. My passport is bare lol

  3. Visiting new places is fun. You must have experienced lot of culture. I also like going and exploring different places. The planning of any holiday requires lot of research so that it can result in good and enjoyable holidays. Holiday is a very special time which brings with it lot of fun and memorable moments in return. I like the picture explaining the different facts about holidays. I went to Ireland last holiday. And that was a amazing trip. We stayed there at Ard na Sidhe. You can have a look at this for further information

    1. I'm actually not one to research too much in advance but thanks for the recommendation!
