It’s been a week of waiting. A week of nothing planned. A week of staying home and avoiding the cold except for two much needed days out to have lunch with friends.
Next week is a big one though. A day trip to London to pick up my passport, and a flight to Sao Paulo to go apartment hunting. We’ll stay there for a month or two and hope to find a place we can call home for the next couple of years. A home base from where we can see more of the country and explore parts of South America we didn’t have a chance to see last time.
I’ll miss these very English places I’ve gotten used to. The Metro, the hedges, the very clean and well stocked grocery stores.
I would say I’ll miss speaking English, but I don’t think it will change much from what I’m dealing with now. Brian and I speak a mix of English and Portuguese at home, and when I’m out in public the locals can’t understand my American accent and I can’t understand their Geordie accents. The only difference in Brazil will be the base language, the misunderstandings will be the same.
I’m ready for it though. Bring on the next chapter!
What are you getting ready for this week?

Don’t forget to add a link back to our site so others can share too, and go leave a comment for the others who link up.
Can’t wait to see what you would hate to leave behind.
