It’s been a while since I last posted here so I just wanted to update about my whereabouts and new adventures.
For those of you who don’t know yet, after living 3 years in Chiang Mai in Thailand, my wife and I have decided to move on and try a different place to settle. This doesn’t mean that we are fed up with Chiang Mai, which is our special place, but we wanted some change and “change is often good”.
After a few weeks of wrapping up projects and getting rid of stuff we accumulated in 3 years, we finally packed all of our life belongings in just a few bags, ready to jump in a plane and start over.
Our new destination is going to be the beautiful city of Granada in Spain. But before heading there, we are spending a month in Abu Dhabi in the UAE, catching up with family and friends and researching about our next city.
Since I’ve talked about missing the beautiful view from my balcony and the thunderstorms in Chiang Mai, I was surprised to be greeted with a thunderstorm in the usually dry and hot capital. Lightning wasn’t as impressive as in Thailand, but I was able to get just one shot before the storm moved on.
Next morning was another kind of storm, with a big sandstorm blanketing the city with dust and sand.
Unfortunately, the weather has now changed, and the temperatures are rising slowly but surely (currently up to 39C). This week’s probably the last week we’ll be able to enjoy the outdoors without sweating buckets.
We have two weeks left before heading to Spain, and we’re busy researching apartments, paperwork, and all the legalities of moving to a new country.
If anyone’s familiar with Granada or is around the area, don’t hesitate to leave a note and connect with me. We’d love to meet up and have some tapas!
