Feeling Festive

As we approach nearer and nearer to Christmas, I can’t help but lack the festive spirit that usually fills me this time of year. Still wearing summer dresses, shorts and short-sleeve shirts probably has something to do with it. So this weekend we made a conscious effort to get more into a festive mood, which you…

Monday’s Mood

Happy Monday! Feeling so great and refreshed after the weekend. Last minute, we decided to take a little weekend getaway trip to Malta’s sister island, Gozo. It turned out to be one of the most memorable experience we’ve had yet! The weather was perfection, and we packed the weekend in with lots of sightseeing, outdoor…

The weekend arrived dramatically, with a cyclone passing through Malta. The storm turned the streets into rivers, the trees into puppets, and left us slightly stranded outside in the middle of it. Luckily, we made it home safe and sound (albeit wet!) and spent the rest of the night tucked inside. Slowly but surely the weekend’s…

Moved Back to Malta

Hello from Malta! We’ve moved back on Friday, and instantly felt back at home. It was a balmy 18°C as we stepped off the plane into the evening, and we couldn’t be happier about it. Since arriving back it’s as if I’ve been seeing Malta in a whole new light, noticing things I never seemed…

Monday’s Mood

When I realized earlier this week that we have less than two weeks left here in Lviv before we move back to Malta, I was floored. For whatever reason, the three months living in Ukraine have whizzed by relative to the three months we spent in Malta prior to. So in order to make the most…

Fall Feelings

Happy Monday, and to all my Canadian friends & family- happy long Labour Day weekend! I know this day for most is more bitter than sweet, as it marks the end of summer and the beginning of colder months. After an exceptionally hot summer (I was living in the Mediterranean, after all!), I was looking…

Monday’s Mood: Independence Day

Yesterday (August 24th) was Ukrainian Independence Day. It is the most important and widely-celebrated national holiday, in which Ukrainians  celebrate the country’s Declaration of Independence since 1991 from the Soviet Union. Although I’ve been familiar with the holiday back in Canada, I’ve never known the magnitude of importance this day marks for so many Ukrainians. It was…

Monday’s Mood

We had a wonderful weekend exploring our new city. I kicked off the weekend with an Ukrainian language lesson over a pint, and am looking forward to improving my fluency. Saturday was spent walking around the entire city centre, discovering new things and eating  American-owned Tex-Mex BBQ. Considering we hadn’t had BBQ in months, and…
