A new post, for the sake of it

It has been over three months since I last wrote, namely because I haven't been anywhere to really write about. Well...I did travel to Brussels two weekends in a row (3.5 hour train ride), but since I have one or two posts on Brussels already, I chose not to write on the city. Although, what I can say about this lovely Belgian city is that I only recently discovered what a nightmare it is to navigate the bloody place. Every time I've been, I walked the streets with someone who was living there and knew her way, but left to my own devices on the most recent visit, the city was truly a maniacal maze...and I've been in my share of labyrinthine European cities!

Anyhow, I was thinking today (prompted by a friend's blog post that, of late, the bloggers he follows are not writing much new stuff) that I'd add something new to my blog. Since it's a blog on travel, I thought I'd stay within the parameters and add an article or news piece related to general travel, on a more regular basis. Thus, in between my own travels, there will still be something interesting or fun to read. Let's see if I can keep this up!

I will start with posting something in the next couple of days since this post in effect satisfies the condition of updating my blog :-)

Despite the relatively quiet past 3 months in terms of travel, we do have some very exciting travels coming in the Spring/early Summer!

If all goes accordingly, we will be traveling to Poland (Warsaw and Krakow) over Easter weekend to visit friends. A little less than a month later, we will be traveling to Geneva for a friend's wedding (I haven't been to Switzerland since 2002!)...then, I will be headed to the U.S. in mid-May to take care of some wedding planning and to have my bachelorette. A month thereafter in June, we'll be heading out on a week-long sailing trip with friends along the southwestern Italian coast and the island of Elba!!!

This sailing trip is a repeat of the one from Mallorca to Ibiza and back in 2007 (refer to earlier post on this). I am simply so lucky to have a dear friend who is a certified captain, meaning we can charter sailboats without having to hire a crew! It's ridiculously affordable and nothing short of fabulous.

What great things to look forward to! I need these things to keep me going in this dingy, cold and windy Dutch weather.

That's all for now, but stay tuned for another post soon!
