Hello, I'm back!

Hi Everyone! :-)

I've actually been back for a week but have been very busy and haven't had a chance to blog at all! I'm now in a new job, which I absolutely love, and am trying to get myself organised before September madness starts. This is a job I've been wanting to be in for years and years and I'm thrilled that things have finally fallen into place.

My vacation was fantastic. If you haven't been to Wales, I suggest you add it to your list. It's a wonderful place to spend a few weeks. We stayed in South Wales, in the Brecon Beacons, which is a national park. Lovely countryside, amazing scenery, picturesque towns... Ahhh....

We also spent a few days on Cardiff, the Welsh capital. What a great city! Admittedly, all I really did was shop, the shopping was amazing!! I live in Belgium, where the shopping really doesn't compare... :-( Although that's probably good for my wallet. Although not anymore, since many British stores now deliver to continental Europe. But I digress.

Seriously, visit Wales, it's so beautiful. It reminded me of Ireland, which makes sense, with the Celtic connection and all. If you're looking for a relaxed holiday that's in an interesting place, Wales is a great option.

I didn't get all my reading done, as expected, but I did some and I have several reviews of some great books coming up. Looking forward to catching up on your blogs to see what you've been up to!

Congrats on your job and I was so excited to hear about Wales. I studied abroad there my Senior year because I was a history major and absolutely fell in love with the country and people. Welcome back!
