expat life: booking flights that change your life

So this happened last night, which means I am officially entering the next phase of the adventure. A one way ticket to London has been booked and I will be saying hello to a city I love on the 4th April. 

Yes I know that is barely more than two weeks from now and I don't finish work until the 31st and I have a million and one things to organise, accounts to cancel, bills to discontinue and apartment to finish packing, not to mention two suitcases to pack. But I like to keep life interesting. 

As soon as I pressed the confirm booking button, a wave of emotion rushed over me. It was a combination of excitement, nerves and sadness. It was bittersweet because no matter how much I want to leave, there is a piece of my heart reserved for Cyprus and the people that have made the past three years so amazing. Cyprus has been home and it is weird packing up and leaving another country for a new adventure. 

You want to be excited but oh my the future is a little scary. 

I have mentally prepared myself for the ensuing stress and emotion that the next few weeks will bring. One day we will return to Cyprus but until then, it's see you later to this little mediterranean island. 


  1. I'm looking forward to your new adventures, but am so grateful that I got to witness your time in Cyprus through your blog.

    1. I am looking forward to them too. First stop London.
      Thank you for your support and your kind words. I would love it if our paths cross one day. The beauty of expat life I guess is you never know where you will end up.
