Just along for the ride

I've been off the radar for a few months. In the time since my absence from this little corner of cyber - space, I got back into my Cleveland groove (fell back in love with that city on the lake), returned to Differdange, and began a new semester of coordinating student activities for a new crop of students.

Time has flown.

As I feel the year ticking away, the last in Europe (for the time being), it feels surreal. I've started my bucket list for the year (learn German, hike 100 km of the Camino de Santiago) but with the full realization that the best moments are the unplanned.

Before I came back to Luxembourg, I felt I needed plans. There were expectations. And for a minute, I forgot what it was like to just let go, enjoy the ride, and see what life could serve up.

So here I am, beginning year three of this European existence, an unexpected journey that found me at the crossroads of life, nervous, but eager to see what's next.

I did 170 km last year on the camino de Compostelle. I loved it. Next year, I'll do it from Le Puy en Velay, France. It was an adventure and a way to be far away from communicating machines...

Good to have you back (both in Lux and in blog space). Adorable picture and let's work on planning the Santiago de Compostela!
