We hit the road in 30 minutes to drop-off the car, have dinner with family and head to the Toronto airport. We’re flying to Vienna via London and a friend will pick us up and take us to Nitra, Slovakia. We’re catching a 5:30am train (that’s 15 hours after we get to Slovakia) to Romania to grab the car and do the 5 hour drive back to Slovakia (actually started to type the words “back home” just then). We’re speaking at Mozaika on the 19th and we are SO excited to see our friends and catch-up on the last 6 months.
On the 22nd we’ll be doing the 10 hour drive north into Poland and checking into a hotel. Then we have to find an apartment. We hope to be moving in on October 1st. University starts on October 4th and we begin our regiment of 5 hours of classes a day, Monday to Friday.
There’s so much going on in our hearts and brains right now that we could not share it right now. We’re grieved to leave friends and family, but excited for what comes next. We’re torn in a good way.
We’ll be in touch once we’re settled or you can follow us on Twitter (ambernmatthew).
