Back in Europe.

It’s been nearly two weeks since we arrived back here in Europe and it’s been a busy two weeks for sure.  It felt a little strange at first but also so very nice, I didn’t thought I would feel this way, but we are happy to be here.

After being in the USA for well over a year, it’s a good change a refreshing change.  Before leaving I was thinking about the good things and opportunities that you have whilst being in the USA and there is a list.  I was a little apprehensive about coming back to Europe, mainly because of the European weather, which is never that great.  However after nearly two weeks I have realised there is things I have missed from this part of the world also.  It’s different and there are different things to look forward to and to be honest the weather hasn’t been too bad either.

Some of the things we have both realised we have missed is the feeling of European culture and diversity and of cause the food.   It’s wonderful to walk into a cheese shop or chocolate shop and down the rows of market stalls.

Morgan had only been to Rotterdam before, and for me Holland is a new destination all together.  It’s quite different to any of the European countries I have visited before.  So far it’s been a wonderful experience and we can only hope that the rest of our summer over this side of the pond will be just as exciting.
