I'm back

I'm writing this from St Petersburg (Russia), my last Russia stop in a ten day solo trip through Russia, Finland, Estonia and Sweden. I didn't intend to go alone, but when I found that no one really wanted to head north in December, I figured I'd go on my own. What I've found has been a push to get out of my own bubble, friendly faces and a peaceful joy I didn't realize I was looking for. I've also been taken aback by the beauty of what I've seen, the delicious foods and the kind people I keep meeting.

So much has happened since my last post. I left Bissau, as planned and moved to Berlin. I went to Zanzibar, a long time dream destination of mine. Then I moved back to Bissau for another six months. I'm now living in Madrid and am getting another masters degree. All I can say is it's been a whirlwind, and I needed a break from blogging (and focus on other things)...

It's been a fun break, and I'm glad to be back.  

Hope you'll keep reading, 

/Jo
