Portugal was so much fun with my friend, Lauren, even if we were both sick at various parts of the trip. I'm working on a full post about it, but here's a little teaser!
Now I'm back in London for a few days. My Airbnb is great, but very...utilitarian. It's pretty basic, and the laundry is in a downstairs communal laundry room, so I can't just put laundry in during the day and leave it (which I am only now realizing is a huge problem for all the clothes that can't go in the dryer because if I don't do laundry until Saturday as planned, they won't be dry in the <24 hours until I have to pack and fly again...crap).
I'm finally feeling better after a horrible cold kept me out of it for a few days, but now I have a big week to get all my projects in a stable condition before I go on vacation to Asia. I travel all day Sunday to get to Groningen, Netherlands for work. Of all places, I just found out there's a huge music festival happening in Groningen right now, but it ends the day before I arrive - go figure. Hopefully I can find somewhere to watch the Dallas Cowboys playoff game, and the hotel I stay in, fortunately, has a great breakfast and onsite DIY laundry (rather than absurdly expensive hotel laundry service) and a decent gym. The "workouts" part of this blog and my life have fallen in priority with all the travel and various aches and injuries (plantar fasciitis - ouch!), so hopefully I can manage a few sweat sessions while my laundry is going.
Until next time, and Happy New Year!
