Flashback to 2011: I had booked a trip to Ann Arbor, MI to visit my best friend who was working/studying there and in order to find the best deal I had 2 stopovers on my way back: one in Boston and one in Amsterdam. Exhausting I tell you, especially as I had a 6-hour break in Amsterdam and was wandering aimlessly in the city in 8 o’clock in the morning! But that’s not my point. My point is Boston. I still remember the landing in Boston. It was early June, the weather was great and I couldn’t get enough of Boston’s harbor and islands. Really. I said to myself that I had to visit that city one day.

Well I guess the universe heard my request as I’m going to spend the next 9 months in Boston! My husband got a scholarship to study in Tufts University and I tagged along after getting an unpaid leave of absence from my job.

The common question I get is what I am going to do (since I won’t be working). Well for starters I’m going to find a yoga studio and become a regular there! Second I’m going to give more attention to my blogs and respective social media. And then I’ll see what I’m going to do! I treat this time as a “gap year” and all I care is to have fun and enjoy it as much as I can 😛

P.S. The photo was taken from the airplane as it approached Boston Logan Airport and actually depicts Salem and Marblehead since I haven’t found the time yet to visit downtown Boston (I have a house to decorate first)!
