Happy New Year from our family to yours! We made it to Hong Kong a few days ago and after staying the night in a hotel we are finally getting settled into our temporary apartment. We’ll be here for the next month while we house hunt around the city to find the perfect apartment. Our air shipment of some things will be here in the next couple weeks and the rest of our furniture will be here sometime next month. It’s a little tough living out of suitcases and only having the necessities we need but honestly, we don’t need much to be happy. As long as we’re together that’s all that matters.
Our apartment is super nice and in a really convenient part of town. There are a lot of restaurant and grocery store options nearby and it’s fairly easy to get around with the girls and a stroller. We’re very close to the metro for my husband’s work too. Olivia is so excited to start school right after Chinese New Year. I think we are all just excited to get settled and get into our new routine in our new city. Change is hard, and moving around the world is really hard… but we know this is an amazing opportunity and we would have regretted it the rest of our lives if we didn’t take this chance and live in the moment. Here’s to ringing in 2020 living abroad and all the adventures and memories coming our way this year!
