How I traveled across the Atlantic with my kitchen mixer.

I never thought one of my ambitions would be to carry a 37 lb (16.7 kg) kitchen mixer through the Atlanta airport. Now that I’ve done it, I must say I guess I feel a bit more accomplished. After all, it’s probably not an endeavor that anyone would want to undertake. If given another option perhaps I wouldn’t have chosen to do so either. It was the tragic mistake of misreading a decidedly misleading text about the transportation of fragile and bulky objects that led to the start of this enormously heavy adventure.

The excitement of baking abroad.

The excitement of baking abroad.

This Fall marks the beginning of the second holiday season that I’ll be spending outside of the States. My favorite time of year has always been Fall and I’m enjoying it here in Belgium, too. I love when the leaves begin to fall and scent the morning air with their distinct and crisp smell. I like wearing cozy clothes, putting my ever-growing scarf collection to its rightful use, enjoying multiple cups of hot coffee and tea and smelling the toasty scent of cinnamon. Every morning when I ride my bike to my Dutch class, I find myself thinking that this really is a beautiful place to be living. I ride along the bike path next to the water and some mornings the fog hangs over the water. I feel quite content bundled up in my Fall scarf and hat, pedaling away through the multi-colored leaves and enjoying the view.
