The past couple weeks have been crazy here, but it seems like things are finally falling into place for us. New apartment, new car, new phones…check, check, and check! Getting settled and having the ability to do basic things, like make a phone call, took longer than we thought it would. But now that it’s almost over, we could not be happier with how everything came together. George is able to walk to work from our apartment and I get to drive our new Mini around. Also, we both got a great international plan for our phones.
I must say, our apartment is pretty awesome, although I really can’t take credit for most of it. We did get a new, more comfortable couch, but aside from that almost everything you see came with the apartment.
With all those necessities taken care of, we have been able to relax a little and start exploring our new city more. And so far, we like it. It’s not a charming English village and it’s not a big city, but something in between. There are a few really cute villages nearby and in town, we have access to almost every kind of shopping we could possibly need. But what we are both most excited about is how close we are to London (30 minute train ride!) and from there, how easy it is to get to the rest of Europe. We can’t wait to start traveling more!
