Holiday Break, New Starts & My Sincerest Thanks!

September is, at this point, way more than started and this has always been a special month for me. September is like a “New Year’s Day”: new activities, new people, new places… new beginnings! Well, this year ,for me, will be quite different because what usually happens in September will happen in… October even thought the preparation part started now already!

Yes because, now that everyone is actually coming back from their summer holidays… I’m starting mine! πŸ˜€ Indeed, I’ve been working until Friday (in Italy) and on Monday I’m leaving for a 10 DAYS CRUISE! I’m so excited and “bothered” at the same time. I’ve already been on a 10 days cruise 3 years ago around the Mediterranean sea and it has been amazing, so I’m sure I will enjoy this one too, plus, most of the places I’ll visit, I’ve never been there so you can just imagine how I’m feeling about it! On the other side…it’s the first time since when I started blogging that I won’t post following my”routine schedule” or posting my daily pictures on Instagram which I mean, it’s not a big deal at all, but it just sounds so strange thinking about it! I think this also might be good for me because I’ve never been using so much technology since when I’m blogging, first I just used it mainly work and class while now it covers every part of my life practically! So it might be good this “detox” from technology for a few days πŸ˜‰ Plus, I’m sure that I’ll be “busy” there and internet will definitely not be a priority!!

And wait my news are not finished because as soon as I’ll be back from the cruise (the day after actually) I’M MOVING TO LONDON for my last year (omg so weird it’s already my last year!!) of uni (Wandering why? click here πŸ˜‰ !! Which also excites me sooo much because living in London has always been a dream of mine but at the same time I’m like “Will I be able to handle the so constant development and frenetic rhythm of the city?!” Honestly, I think I will, I mean, where I used to live in Italy was also quite a big city, of course not as big as London but for sure bigger than Leuven so….well, let’s say I’m convincing myself everything will be okay! Also because I’ll be there with my uni mates whom I’m also looking forward to meet again!

Anyway, so many things to look forward to and so many luggages to prepare! πŸ˜€

As I said before, I won’t have constant internet connection so I won’t be posting until I’m in London and of course once there I’ll update you about everything and I’m sure all these experiences will make me create lot of new content for the blog which I hope you’ll like! But in the meanwhile, when I’ll have connection I’ll be posting some pics of my Instagram Account so if you’d like to see them you can follow me by going here and pressing the button “follow” and if you want to Β follow me “mentally” here’s my cruise itinerary:

I can’t wait to share with you all the experience I’ll be living annddd I can’t wait to announce all the new ideas I’m having about my blog posts and activities I’m planning toΒ start on my blog when I’ll come back from the vacation!!

But before closing my laptop and my luggages there’s another thing I’d like to say. Just.. THANK YOU. Thank you, yes you reading this post, because you and all the other 600 readers of the blog are giving me so much inspiration and motivation too keep going and believing in what I’m doing.

Really I have no words, I’m so happy to have you hear and that my output is appreciated, it means really a lot to me so thank you so much!

    Hi Lisa,
    Your cruise sounds fantastic and your love to London sounds bold and daring but you will find your feet. I have been following Londoner Geoff Le Pard’s blog for a few years now and it would be very helpful for findng places off the beaten track. He is also part of the Bloggers’ Bash which meets annually in London. I’m desperate to go but am thinking about putting one together here in Sydney. Flying to London from Australia is very expensive.
    If you’re interested in motivational quotes, I’ve posted a few recently as I’m doing the 3 Day Quotes Challenge and have found a minefield of quotes while researching something else.
    Hope you have a great weekend.
    xx Rowena

    1. Hi Rowena! Thank you for stopping by and reading the post! And thank you so much for telling me about Londoner Geoff Le Pard’s blog and the Bloggers’ Bash I will definitely check them out! I can imagine flights from Australia are so expensive, but good that you want to try to create one there! Good luck! Good luck! I’ll definitely check out your quotes too! Have a lovely weekend πŸ™‚

  19. […] you all know by now (if not, check out this post πŸ˜‰ ) I’m just back from a wonderful 10 days cruise. Saying that my mind is still there […]

  20. How exciting this is! Hope you enjoy! I really look forward to reading your updates!! 😊
