Firstly, I have a confession to make.
As I write this post, I’m no longer living in Madrid but in fact, just relocated to a place far away and strikingly different. Things just seem to happen at the opportune moment and it’s now time for us to change the course of life yet again, and steer it towards a different direction.
The past 3+ years spent living and constantly wandering around Spain and the region had been absolutely fabulous and the experience was more than what I’d have ever expected. The exposure to the European culture, lifestyle and cuisine had certainly fuelled my love for travel & photography in a huge way. Not forgetting the friendships that I’ve built - something that I’ll cherish forever.
I won’t deny there’s a part of me wishing I could stay longer and I’m sure that I’ll be missing life in Madrid a lot. Perhaps one day I’ll be back in Spain taking a trip down memory lane, but for now, I’m actually really excited about what my future holds. I’ll be looking forward to every day with the same enthusiasm I had when I first got to Madrid. I’m really thankful for being able to truly live life wherever I go and I count my blessings every day.
Last but not least, as I begin a new chapter of my life, here’s wishing everyone a very Happy New Year ahead. May 2012 be a year for challenges to turn into opportunities, and for dreams to turn into reality.
Signing off from Shanghai!
