It’s crazy that it’s already the end of summer. Technically the summer season will last for a few more weeks but I feel like the summer is over. Its probably also because I was recently thinking about my plans for September
September has always been a symbol of fresh start and new beginning for me because it marked the start of a school year. Even though I am no longer a student, I still consider September to be a beginning of something new.
We still have some traveling plans for September as well as exploring Belgium with our families who will come visit us here. So we will enjoy little last minute summer vacations.
And speaking of plans, my September can be summarized in these things I look forward to experience in the upcoming month:
Admiring the work of Antoni Gaudí in Barcelona, Spain
We are going to spend just two days in Barcelona and we were told that’s just not enough time to explore the city. So I guess this will be first of many visits of Barcelona.
I’m not sure how much we will manage to squeeze into our time there but surely the sights like La Sagrada Familia, Casa Milà or Güell Palace, a beach walk, paella and tapas tasting will make it into our packed schedule.
Vine tasting in Porto, Portugal
I am not much of a wine drinker. But we will be spending couple of days in Porto and wine tasting and wine cellar tours are a must in this city.
Other than that I’m looking forward to some leisure time and evening walks in the streets of Porto. I still didn’t prepare for this trip so I’m not sure what else to do and see, but by the time of our travel I’ll be ready.
Re-read Smart Women Finish Rich by David Bach
I’ve read this book not so long ago but it’s time to re-read it. It was a great read and I tried to implement few of the financial advices from the book. Now I want to refresh my memory and check if I’m on a good path. I’ll share the review on the blog later in September.
Other than that, I haven’t decided if I’m going to continue with French courses or not. After more than a yearlong break I’m sure it will be difficult to get back to class. But I know myself and if I won’t continue I’ll regret it later. I still have a couple of weeks to decide.
Since the last few weekends involved some travel, and next few weeks will be also spent exploring new places and entertaining our families here in Brussels, I look forward to lazy weekends at home at the end of the month. I expect the weather to be typical Belgian again, which calls for hot chocolate and good book and that’s just what I’ve been craving recently.
