Hi everyone!

I just wanted to take a little time to thank you for your ongoing support for this blog. I can assure you that every post like and each comment cause a jolt of happiness, and every time I engage with one of you through comments you’ve left, I am reminded why I started on this journey.

And although I value each and every individual interaction greatly, I am certainly most appreciative of those of you who have followed my blog on WordPress! I now have 100 of you in my extended friend list and I couldn’t be more excited about the future of this little community I’m hoping to continue to grow with your help.

Let there be more adventures, endless wanderlust and shared love for our world ๐Ÿ™‚

Next post: I finally made it to Portugal! Come with me on a trip around Lisbon to enjoy the unique atmosphere of the city and one too many custard tarts!


Coming up: a few trips on home soil around the UK, back to Belgium for a special treat, my third trip to Milan, my fist visit to Switzerland, and (FINALLY) another trip to the USA, this time – East Coast!

See you very soon,
