Back in America





Back from my time abroad - a little mix of business (Amsterdam) and pleasure (Istanbul). It was two weeks in Europe, my longest time away from Joel since being married. I warned him it was going to feel really long and might drag on for him ;) He acted so sure he would be fine on his own. Yet, I got an email a week in titled "I think 4 days is my max..." What do you know the boy missed me! 

I'm currently feeling the full effects of jet lag, and this time I'm trying not to take my usual niquil to help me sleep. So here I am, 5am style catching up on the blog! I'm excited to do a full deep dive into sharing each country, especially Turkey being a new country and culture for me. I was blown away. The city of Istanbul beyond exceeded my expectations. And so surprised at how safe I felt the entire time (some warned me otherwise). I'm already regretting not buying more (surprise surprise), but I told Joel this just means we have to go back! I mean we really have to!

  4. I'm in love with your blog! Wish you would update it more often though. Can't wait for your post on Istanbul, as I would love to go there myself some day. Also, as a European (Norwegian), it's always fun to learn about the Americans take on Europe, so a post about Amsterdam would be much appreciated as well - although I know you've written about that amazing city before as well. More posts with tips about the "hidden" treasures of California would also be amazing. In the mean time, keep up the good work!
