Holy goodness guys. We got our own Jonas/snowzilla blizzard here. It was 64 degrees outside this morning. I got to work non-sweaty, with hair that looked like it was styled, and smelling like flowers. Or whatever I smell like when I’m not sweating. I don’t really remember anymore.
Anyone else obsessed with the new Adele album? I know I am. It’s been a busy Christmas season (which is probably an obvious statement since I haven’t posted anything in a month. Yikes!), but I’ve managed to listen to “Hello” about nine million times, and subsequently drive my husband absolutely insane. In the not so holiday spirit, I’m also currently obsessed with Rihanna’s oldie (?) but goody, “B!tch Better Have My Money” (link/song nsfw – just in case the title didn’t give it away). I mean, “baht baht baht!” fits right into the song! It’s almost as though it would be a crime for me not to like it when it’s so applicable on a daily basis. #Thailandcurrencyforthewin
Ok, so I said previously that if you haven’t heard of Phuket before, you should probably come visit us. Stat. The invitation’s still open.
We are on home leave right now, and enjoying every minute of it.
One of the best parts of this lifestyle – and a major benefit of being in Europe – is being able to travel frequently, easily, and relatively inexpensively to the continent. We’ve really been trying to take advantage and go to places that are a bit off the beaten path (for us at least).
Last month, we got a chance to go to the French Alps for a long weekend. We met up with two friends and rented a tiny little apartment in the town of Briançon, through Airbnb. We flew into Switzerland for about $200 roundtrip, and then rented a car to do the approximately 3 hour drive to the town. The town itself was pretty adorable (and is a Unesco World Heritage site), and completely fit my stereotype of what a European ski town would look like.
So I’m taking a step back to recap some of our travels and share some photos. Trying to play catchup, since I’ve been slacking on the blog updates!
We traveled to Berlin the weekend before Christmas for a 4-day getaway. It was my first time in Germany, and it made me want to return to Germany in the future — the people were friendly, our hotel was gorgeous, and we just had a generally good time walking around (the several glasses of mulled wine involved throughout the trip may have also influenced my happiness.).
Helloooo! I’m back! Again.
Seriously. I’m making a not quite mid-year resolution to post at least twice a month. We’ll see how that goes.
