Just popping in here quickly to wish you a very Merry Christmas (or whatever you celebrate!) – I flew back to New Jersey on Wednesday evening and it’s been nice to spend time with family and slow down a bit. My family has a big Christmas party before the holidays with all of my aunts and uncles on my dad’s side, then we celebrate Christmas Eve at my Mom’s house and Christmas Day at my Dad’s, so it’s been a whirlwind of festivities over the past few days. We even woke up to a White Christmas this morning , which hasn’t happened in ages!
Similarly to last year, I’m heading on a little solo adventure tomorrow for the time between Christmas and New Years – I’ll be heading to Portugal to explore Lisbon and Porto and can’t wait to see another new country. This year has been a big year of travel for me (nine new countries!) and it’s truly been one of the best years yet. I’ll be taking some time off from blogging while I’m traveling but will be back in the new year with new posts, and as always, you can follow along on Instagram for travel snaps and videos of my antics while abroad.
