Moving to Amsterdam

In less than five hours I’ll be on my way to Amsterdam, starting my journey to Australia by way of the Netherlands. It doesn’t seem real. πŸ™‚

I’m excited, nervous, and already miss my dear ones here in the States and Canada. And I’m really, really happy.

It’s been a very difficult and painful year, and I’m looking forward to starting over with a clean slate, putting all this wretched stuff behind me.

There are so many good things to look forward to in the months ahead: seeing family and close friends in Italy for my brother’s wedding, meeting up with dear folks all over Europe for good talks and new adventures, and taking a lot of time to rest and heal up before I start my new life in Australia.

As soon as my torn ligament heals (a few more weeks yet), I’ll be heading out to explore Amsterdam. I love this city so much and am very excited to share it with you.

Now I must fetch that last load of laundry, finish stuffing my bags, and get started on this grand adventure.

Much love to you all. I will write to you soon from my new home in Amsterdam.
