How I’m feeling about my return to Germany, land with real food and drinks, clean air and my own bed/shower/apartment:
I’m in the home stretch for my return (redeployment) back to Germany! I’ve already planned my first trip for when I get back–Lisbon, Portugal. J has already been there and I haven’t been to any portion of Portugal, the idea being not to explore too many new places without each other. Figured Lisbon would be the perfect place to relax, enjoy good wine (Port), Fado, and spend some quality alone time w/ myself and a city. If you randomly stumbled across this post because it included the tag ‘Lisbon’, and you have recommendations or suggestions, please don’t hesitate to leave a comment.
This quick trip will probably be the only vacation/down time I’ll have for the first couple months back, I’m moving across Germany to a new post/station for my remaining year. My goal is to complete this move ASAP–beating everyone else who is on ‘block leave’ and settling into my new place before I take my block leave. That way I don’t have to cut my time short with J and my family and return to a half-finished move.
I said I’ll be posting more and I’m going to keep to this, more so when I return. This blog once was a place to post sites I found amusing, songs I thought the common reader would find interesting or enjoyable, and other random topics…this will more or less stay the same. I may add more personal travels and experiences, more personal photographs (a deployment gift to myself: Nikon D7100), and other hobby/interest-related posts (read: more personal). For example, being deployed I realize how much I miss making my own meals–especially those that are geared toward my tastes and nutrition goals, so don’t be surprised if I post pictures of my trials and errors with cooking or dedicate a whole post to promoting a Paleo (or not) recipe that I found worthy of sharing. Just a forewarning.
Well, I hope this post finds you well. Back to work. Take care!
