Moving abroad thoughts

with 4 comments

After a certain amount of suspense, things are coming together, and the move looks increasingly possible. Any big relocation tends to involve a certain amount of trepidation, but by using Tom Gilb‘s sage advice, Early!“, we started quite early and over some months have a pretty good handle on things. Still, a big move, which I am earnestly trying to view as an adventure. Which it will be.

In two weeks from today, we’ll be in our new apartment. That’s a soothing thought: all the next two weeks will be in retrospect.

  1. I retired two years ago. Just over a year ago my wife and I moved to a different state and from a rural to an urban environment. This has exposed us to all kinds of new opportunities and experiences. We viewed it, and still do, as a positive adventure.
    I’ll be most interested to hear some of your thoughts over the next few months.

  2. I’ll continue to blog, though there will likely be an interruption during the most intense parts of the move.

  3. I certainly hope you do continue your regular blogging. My mornings wouldn’t be the same without “Later On” to start the day.

    I also hope that, as I understand you are moving north, you will occasionally drop a “u” into “colour” and “labour” so as to fit in with the local “neighbours”.

    Welcome to Canada, eh.

  4. 🙂 Good point. I’ll change spelling to mark the transition. (I already insist on using “moustache” rather than “mustache.”)
