If I had to think of one word to describe our week in Southend-on-Sea, I might use "quiet." Quiet in the best way possible, though. We came directly from Madrid, where our final days were full of packing, cleaning, and just a pinch of chaos (that any international move can involve).
Hello from Worthing, England! We left Spain two and a half weeks ago and are really excited to be spending this month in southern England, dog sitting, visiting friends, and seeing more of this sometimes-sunny country! We've focused all of our previous visits on London, so it's been great to see some other towns and areas (although we have already snuck in a quick weekend to the capital...it's the greatest city in the world, how could we not?!).
As I'm sure you've deduced from the title of the post, this is it! Our "what's next" and "adios to Spain" post that was bound to eventually make it's way to the pages of this blog. Two weeks from today we'll lock our apartment door for the last time, take the bus to the airport, and this (mostly) sunny chapter of our lives will come to an end. I honestly can hardly believe I'm typing this all up (and I'm getting a little choked up right now doing so), but for so many reasons, the time is right for us to start something new.
