In the beginning...

Hi there. I'm Alexandra...

Starting a blog is something foreign to me. I guess it is similar to a diary, something I have attempted to keep in the past but often forget after a couple of months. The exception to this idea is that it is public and quite frankly, I don’t find myself the most public of people over the internet –  with the odd posts to my facebook page and twitter still alien to me.

So what makes this the exception? With a blog being possibly the most open of all social networking sites I use, it comes down to the fact that in just under 2 months’ time, I am moving to live abroad for at least 2 years of my life and… I’m quite a mix of emotions. Since receiving my offer to study abroad in April I have been overwhelmingly excited, but as the commencement date advances ever closer, the nerves have started to kick in. So in order to work through it all, I have decided to start a blog about my upcoming plans and offer light-hearted reading to anyone interested in the process of moving abroad for the first time. I will probably end up posting other bits and pieces here too, likely involving my love for food and travelling.

Hope you will enjoy! 
p.s. this is me… in case you didn't already know. 

An interesting photo choice perhaps, but at least I make myself laugh!
