365 Photo Project – Week 24

We cleaned, we packed, we left. This was a week of transition between worlds. Again. Our stay in Brazil has temporarily come to an end. We spent the first half of the week taking care of business in Jundiai, running errands, exploring nearby streets, and enjoying our last tastes of local cuisine.   We’ve put […]

365 Photo Project – Week 23

We’re twenty three weeks into the year. How did that happen? It’s June already and my brain is telling me it should be getting warmer. It should be summer but it’s not. It’s winter here in the southern hemisphere. It’s one of those things that I could never wrap my mind around, this switch of […]

365 Photo Project – Week 22

It’s June. How did that happen? When we left England in March, it was winter. When we go back there in two weeks it will be summer. How did the time pass so quickly? Week twenty two, nearly half way through the year, and we’re still going strong. We’ve been in our new apartment for […]

365 Photo Project – Week 21

We’re really starting to feel at home here in our new city. We know where things are, we have made some new friends, we’re relaxing into the routine of Brian’s work schedule and the rhythm of life in the hotel. Why not shake it up a bit?   After all, when you’re living in a […]

365 Photo Project – Week 20

Between the chaos surrounding our last minute trip to the US and maddening internet issues back here in Jundiai, I ended up completely skipping the linkup for weeks 18 and 19. Blogger fail. BUT! We’re back on track! Our ridiculously slow internet in the hotel is working today (sort of), and we’ve had a quiet […]

365 Photo Project – Week 17

I spend a lot of my time walking while I explore Jundiai. It’s a very walkable city, with (mostly) decent sidewalks, a lot of tall buildings for reference, and a downtown area that was laid out in a grid system. So far I’ve only gotten lost once, and even then I still had a good […]

365 Photo Project – Week 16

I’m having trouble getting the linking app to work, so if you’d like to participate in today’s linkup please leave your link in the comments section. This has been a week of “taking care of business”, and a little bit of exploration while finding new neighborhoods. I started the week with my long walk and […]

365 Photo Project – Week 15

The evenings here in Jundiai are beautiful. We have a great view of downtown from our balcony, with this church directly in front of us. We think it’s a convent. There seem to be a lot of stooped and ancient nuns coming and going from the house attached to the yard behind the church and […]

365 Photo Project – Week 14

How are we doing after a week in our new town? We are loving it! The warm weather is on the top of our lists of things that give us the happy. I don’t think either of us realized just how much the cold weather of northern England was affecting us, but now that we’re […]

365 Photo Project – Week 13

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 […]

365 Photo Project – Week 11

I worked again this week with Brian and remembered why I do, and don’t, like having a regular full time job. I can tell you with full conviction that I have a deep hatred of crawling out of a warm bed and facing a cold day while it’s still fully dark outside. If it’s dark […]

365 Photo Project – Week 9

We stayed close to home this week. Brian worked while I spent way too much time home on the laptop working on photos, behind the scenes blog stuff, and general internet time wasting. Sometimes I need these days of hunkering down at home. My introvert-self needs to be quiet and get stuff done. One week […]

365 Photo Challenge – Week 8

What better way to start a week than in Edinburgh? The city has quickly become one of my favorite places in all of Scotland because it has everything we could possibly want. There are green spaces, hills to hike, centuries of history, pubs and restaurants galore, a million things to do, and especially people we […]

365 Photo Challenge – Week 5

Week five! How fast it goes. It’s been a wild week for us, and I had a million opportunities for photos so I took my camera with me every time we stepped out the door. The door of the apartment, the metro, the train, the bus, the B&B, the Guest House, the pub, the cafe […]

365 Photo Challenge – Week 4

When we made plans for my daughter to come visit us in England I started a list of things to do here with her. A sort of local Bucket List, if you will. Some of the things on the list were things I had already done and knew she would enjoy, some were things I […]
