Okay I knew it had been awhile since we did a blog, but didn’t realize it had been like 10 weeks! I’m not sure if it is laziness or perhaps we have well and truly settled into life here, but there just hasn’t been too much to write about. Time is just flying along…March and April are over and May will be over soon. The bigs news as some of you might have heard is that we are moving back to Canada this summer. So although the next 6 weeks will be filled with packing and preparing for our return, I will try to blog a bit more frequently because I have lots of thoughts and musing about coming home. Like any big decision, moving back was a hard one to make with many, many, many discussions and second thoughts about what we wanted to do. In the end we decided that returning to Canada in the summer made sense. There are so many things we are really looking forward to about living back in Canada (save that for another blog), but there will also be so many things we are going to miss about our life in Malaysia. So it is definitely with mixed feelings that we prepare for our time in Malaysia to end. We’re pretty happy with the souvenir of Malaysia we will be taking home….Miles!
The tickets are booked and we leave Malaysia July 7. But instead of going right home, we will travel for 3.5 weeks on the way home because we won’t be back on this side of the world for awhile. We will spend 2.5 weeks in Sri Lanka, a country we have always wanted to visit and 1 week in Europe (Belgium and Paris) before returning to Canada August 1.
