New Adventure

Two years ago I dreamt of leaving everything behind to travel around the world. My days were spent planning how I would go about this endeavor. Where do I start? How much do I need? How is my itinerary? I even had a book where I marked the places I will be visiting. It was going to be the best adventure ever.

These days, my days are spent differently. I no longer day dream of what could have been the best adventure ever. I am living it. I am not exactly executing what I have planned before. This is entirely new, more exciting than I have ever thought. And though my days are spent changing nappies or calming an inconsolable baby, there's no greater happiness and fulfillment than being a mother.

My plans of traveling is not totally trashed though. It is shelved for now and will be revisited. By then, travels will be a lot more fun because I will have travel buddies - my husband and my son.

The new adventure has begun.

Zurich Old Town: Bits and Pieces and Corners

... one snowy cold day. Happy Sunday Morning!

Saturday, February 9, 2013


Dear Reader,

So it really happened. I packed my bags and flew halfway across the world to fulfill my work assignment here in Zurich, Switzerland. It's been just a week since I arrived but it seems already a lifetime. Yeah I am being sentimental because I did not get the chance to when I was preparing for this assignment. It's my second take on living a life out in the west. The first one was in the United States but I prematurely terminated my stay there. I was homesick. It took a lot (actually 7 years and 4 onshore assignment offers) to get me here. 

Anyway, life here will be different I bet. I have not settled in yet in my own apartment so I have not unpacked all my stuff. 

I have been adjusting to the snow and cold weather pretty well though I do wish it stops soon so that I can enjoy walks and take photos. Commuting here is essential and actually enjoyable. I tried doing it by myself and i actually made it to work and back home (pat on the back). I don't cook but I really need to learn soon because I can't always depend on my roommate and eating out is really expensive here. Really. 

I feel like I'll be on my own most of the time so I need to think of something to do so that I don't die of depression. I have a long list of places I want to visit here in Europe so hopefully that would help. I am looking forward to new things.

Here's to new adventures.

Ready for the world,
The Not-Geo Traveler
