WHERE?

July 20th, 2009

An opportunity to keep you informed of where I have been, where I am and where I am planning to be.  This should be updated regularly, if I am doing my job right…

But I have fallen behind – and now I need to update this quite a bit… again

Plans

In September, I will be going to US – not sure yet where we will got for New Year.

At the end of September, Bee and I are getting married and a lot of friends and family will be joining us in Brussels for that – really looking forward to it.

With all that is happening, I am not sure where we will be for New Year.

Current

I am in Brussels for a few weeks

I am still living on Belgium and Bee and I celebrated New Year in Vienna

Our first big trip of the year was to Peru where we did the Inca Trail and visited Puerto Maldonado, Cuzco, Puno and Arequipa, among others.

We spent Bee’s birthday in Stockholm this year, right after we moved into our new house.  So I am keeping up m record of not having lived anywhere for as long as six years, even though I did move just to the other side of Brussels.
