Yes, it's been awhile since I've been here. We survived the move to the new apartment. Between getting the new place cleaned and ready, doing the actual move of our furniture and belongings, and then cleaning up the old apartment, the whole month of October was pretty much one big exhausting blur.
We had just a few days in the beginning of November to figure out where the heck our suitcases were located after the move, and to get packed to depart early in the morning on November 6 for a 25 day vacation to China, with a stopover for a few days in Istanbul before making our way to Beijing.
We arrived back in Venice just a few days ago, very jet lagged, but very very happy to be home, with lots of stuff to catch up on here on the blog.
Hope you will have your mugs of coffee or tea ready and join me here.
