From California, I just really wanted to go home to the Philippines to see if I can build a life near family.
But life has other plans. Five months in and I met a wonderfully kind Brit just visiting the country for a few weeks. One date in Makati set off a year of whirlwind romance and adventure. I flew to London to spend five happy months getting to know him. We also had nine months total of long distance relationship before and after our time in London. Keeping communication alive through Facetime, emails and texts everyday was tough but we endured. I finally came back to London in June this year and married him in the 1st of July.
I’m writing this in our home in North London and this ain’t no vacation. This blog is dedicated to the discovery of things I find interesting in my new home. And ultimately the discovery of a new me. I hope my story and musings resonate with some of you out there.
