It’s a big week!
I don’t know if I’ve ever properly laid out our plans here on the blog, so here’s the deal: Brian is working for a UK company which went into partnership with a Brazilian company to form a third company in Brazil. Got that so far? Well, the UK company is sending us to live in Brazil where Brian will be in charge of developing the partnership company for the next several years.
He’s been working in the UK and has been sent down to Brazil a few times over the last six months but, since I’m an American, I wasn’t able to come with him. I needed a visa to come back to Brazil and my previous visa had expired. Brian went down again two weeks ago, and I finally got to join him on Thursday this past week thanks to two separate trips to the Brazilian consulate in London and a shiny new tourist visa in my passport.
We’ll most likely be here for two months while we’re getting to know the area and deciding where we want to live. International apartment hunting anyone (again)? After that two months, we’ll return to the UK until our resident visas are processed and then make the move to Brazil permanent. Or… As permanent as anything is for us, which means we’ll stay until the job is done and then move on. While we’re living in Brazil we plan to do as much exploring as possible, and really take advantage of how close we are to some incredible destinations in South America.
Did I mention that our future has always been wildly unknown? When we left Brazil eight months ago we expected to be settling in Scotland. Oops.
Now, on to my favorite “Through” photos of the week!
With two hours to wait before my return train I followed a friend’s good advice and explored St. Pancras train station in London, which is just steps away from King’s Cross Station. Both are beautiful pieces of architecture.
Aaaaand… Here we go again.
And we’re here!
The hotel has some internet issues, so I apologize for posting this one day late. I hope you’ll still link up your favorite photo of the week!
