Adventures Summer 2013

July was quite the month: I passed my postgrad Master’s cum laude, started a summer job in Ghent (about 45 minutes away from Antwerp by train) as a technical writer and editor at a translation technologies company one of my professors works for…and visited three countries!

This was my month more or less:

July 2: Monschaeur, Germany

July 7-13: Madrid and Salamanca, Spain

July 15-24: Work in Ghent (though lucky me, I get to telecommute a few days a week! My job is awesome.)

July 24-27: Warsaw, Poland

July 29-31: Work in Ghent, concluding with a lovely after-work dinner and drinks with My Personal Francophone (though both the places we originally wanted to go are temporarily closed for vacation after the conclusion of the 10-day annual Gentse Feesten–Ghent Party–on Monday at noon. Which explains the drunk man I saw rambling down the street on Monday at 9 A.M., yelling something in Flemish about women.)

I’m going to post select photos from my trips on this blog, since Facebook won’t let me, and some of my friends and family don’t indulge anyway. I’m very lucky to have been able to travel so much, and hope you enjoy sharing a little of it with me!

To get you started, here is a picture of me blowing out the candle on my birthday cake which My Personal Francophone spoiled me with (among so many other things--he made my birthday awesome. <3) Tiramisu!
