The blog has been quiet the passed few weeks. Suddenly I just didn’t feel like writing. But even though there weren’t any new travel stories, something did happen in the blog. It now has a completely new style! I have been planning this blog overhaul now for a while, but I never seem to have time for it. While living my every day life or traveling with the family, I can barely squeeze out the stories from our trips. And writing along with photo editing takes a surprisingly lot of time.
Overall the blog template will remain the same, but I have styled it a little bit, as well as updated colors and pictures. I am especially excited about the new world map on the destinations page that allows you to hover over and choose which country you would like to read about. The same kind of map is also used for displaying the states of the United States. You can also browse some stories about traveling in general, airlines or expat life.
Yesterday here in the U.S. we celebrated Halloween. Like many others, we too went trick or treating in our neighborhood, and our daughter got a HUGE amount of candy. Some people go all in with decorating their houses and we visited one which was more like a haunted house. They had all kinds of moving spiders, dancing skeletons, a body jumped out of the grave and talking witches. So many halloween lights, scary music and smoke. I was surprised that our daughter bravely walked to the door, but after we left she got spooked by a zombie video playing in the window and started crying. That kind of house is so much fun for adults, but a little too much for small kids.
But now we have stored away both the chicken and the witch costumes for next year and for somebody else, and today I have started to clean the halloween decorations off. Next holiday is just around the corner, and we will drive all the way to Utah for the Thanksgiving. Along the way there we will probably see many interesting and cool places. And after that it’s almost Christmas time. Like always, we will drive down to Southern California to spend the Christmas with the family.
So stay tuned for the new celebrations and for the next trip! And I hope you like the new look of the blog!
