Home Away From Home

I was not sure how much decor I wanted to add to my new place away from home. The initial though was me not wanting to invest too much money into decorating a place I did not plan to live long term. As a result, before leaving The States, I packed a few things that I felt would make me feel more at home. To say the least, it was not enough. The apartment was much larger than I expected and therefor felt very empty. I’ve always had a love for home design and decor. I decided that even if I won’t be here forever, I must create a place that I always wanted to come back to. One that made me feel comfortable. A home away from home. I created a budget for myself and grew with excitement as my new place has come together (I’ll be sharing a few pictures soon). I figure, even if I’m not here forever, I can always pack these things up and ship them to my next destination. Besides, I’m loving it in here!

I’ve been living here for a little over two months now. In short, I have been greatly enjoying my living experience here. Learning more about the people, the culture, and places this country has to offer. It’s a dream come true to have the opportunity of living overseas. Three years ago I said I would. And here I am!
