So it begins.

Our studious adventure overseas.

Jake moved to Belgium in August to get rooted and begin his masters of philosophy. Now the leaves are changing color, the weather is growing colder, and it’s time for me to join.

I haven’t gotten too far from home yet. Just through airport security. Already the language filling my ears is unfamiliar and my sense of belonging is tilting. I think I’m sweating. What wonderful things will I learn, hear, see, and feel on this wild ride! Surely these are the best of times and I am unspeakably lucky.

Bon voyage.
