    Off to a great start

    October 1, 2016 in Bermuda ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    We are off to a great start with an upgrade to bulkhead seats for our first flight.

    We had a great morning with the Jaanferds, our last run on the Bermuda railway.
    Hamish and Sambo's goodbye left neither of us with dry eyes.
    By the way Hamish you are a great taxi driver, you should sign up to be a uber driver 😜, thanks for the lift mate.

    We got to spend some time with Cor, Yolande and Francois on the way to Atlanta. Francois took his first selfie, not bad for a 1 year old.

    Enjoyed some Panda Express in Atlanta, Artie would have loved it!

    Boating with the Kemps and Jaanferds

    September 25, 2016 in Bermuda ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    Tank took us on a trip down memory lane passing the hotel "The Wharf" where it all started in Bermuda five years ago.
    Thanks for the memories Bermuda, so emotional 😜.
    Five years ago I would have had 12 beers on a boat trip like this, today i only had one diet pepsi, damn I got old.

    Packing excel spreadsheet style

    September 21, 2016 in Bermuda ⋅ 🌧 25 °C

    Packing by number, yes i had the laptop handy as i used an excel spreadsheet to plan this pack. Not easy to reduce your life to a few bags.

    Now our bags are packed and we are almost ready to go . . .

    Leaving on a yet plane, don't know when/if i will be back again.

    Packing

    September 21, 2016 in Bermuda ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    It is getting real, operating at the speed of lighting or there about. Enjoying our view for one last week. I Will truly miss the island greet "more my eiland" in the mornings when we open the curtains.

    Our apartment is echoing and all the cupboards are empty, it does not really feel like our "space" anymore. It is quite liberating to get rid of stuff especially some of the second hand stuff that was not ever really my taste, but were functional for 5years. In this declutter/detox of our apartment I once again realized that things aren't important its experiences that are. I started to pack this morning - will it be enough? really need this? - should I add an extra dress ? maybe I can go without this, nah? Oh FYI I am experimenting with the roll method of packing - so far it's pretty epic and seems like we will have way more space ( and wrinkles lol) but lets see how this works in practice when we will actually be living out of a bag.

    Everything is not easy but everything hard is worthwhile.

    Saint Georges

    September 18, 2016 in Bermuda ⋅ 🌙 27 °C

    The Roof's off in Saint Georges, our last convertible drive with the Suzuki but typically Bermuda has other plans... it's bucketing down. We never spend a lot of time here, only with events like the Island Challenge, Christmas Walkabout, Paget Island days, the odd cricket match & if we have visitors. Nevertheless had a nice goodbye-drive and an "excellent service" Bda style breakfast with the newlyweds.

    We spend a couple of hours clearing cupboards, throwing out stuff & selling the iron and ironingboard #beingproductive

    This eventful Sunday was topped with a lovely Italian evening at the Homers. We Always have such a great time& good laughs with the Scottish & Saffer trio.

    Coopers island

    September 18, 2016 in Bermuda ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    Sporty Sunday- It was a PB day out in Coopers island OCAB 5km, my last race before we head off. Dolf's first sub 30 with 28.54 (impressive for a forward) I managed a sub 24 (finally) and surprisingly earned myself a medal by placing 3rd in the 18-39 agegroup. Durnas and Abbie also outperformed themselves .
    The humidity is finally lower or rather more manageable, definitely a highlight that Hopday made his appearance . Blessed to have shared my last hoera with the Paget triangle and Abster. Great when the boys also come out to run.

    Watching Madhatters with lots of Fomo today but trying to be wise &save the body-parts for all our active adventures over the next few months. Feeling really weird (and a tad frustrating) not to be on the pitch but fun to hang out with the police crew.

    Beach bubbly full-moon farewell

    September 16, 2016 in Bermuda ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    Amazing night on the beach with our bermuda framaly (friends who became family).
    Unbelievable full-moon, no camera can do it justice.
    Tonight was really heartwarming, we once again realized that the best part of living in Bermuda was spending time with the amazing people. We are privileged to call our friends for live!
