One of the best things about living in the UK is the ease of travel. We just "popped" over to Portugal for the weekend and it was absolutely lovely. The weather was spectacular this time of year...the sun was hot but the nights were cool. Portugal is known for its oranges and the fresh orange juice every morning is worth the trip alone! O...and don't forget the coffee con leche or "white coffee." Our condo is located in a small fishing village called Albufera. It's just out of the main tourists beaches and shops but has it's own quaint beach and boutiques. A wonderful weekend full of sun, wonderful food and great shopping!
From city to village, from condo to cottage...documenting each new experience. From Atlanta, GA to Ryton-on-Dunsmore, UK, renovating an old cottage built in 1915 is just the start. I am learning to garden, cook, and now have my own tool belt. Along the way...there is something new everyday! I am an avid ballroom dancer...it is my passion. I will dance at any opportunity. I still play soccer...in my old age and can feel it the next morning more than I used to. O well...I will always love the sport. I also try and rock out at the piano everyday as my love for classical piano continues to grow and grow. I love anything that has to do with the arts and find that I am a bit creative...it seems to come out more and more. I know nothing about renovations, electrics, plumbing, gardening, cooking or anything else along those lines. I honestly don't even know if I like it yet...but I am trying really hard...learning more everyday. I hope you enjoy reading about my experiences...my days...my joys and my desperate moments where I want to escape!!! Lots of change in a year. A new country, a new house, a lovely new husband and now a wonderful little boy.
