a freckle-faced somebody blazing a life abroad

I moved to Portugal. 

Three weeks. Two breakdowns. zero regrets



Thanks for joining me

Good Morning Sunshine! Emily here. What is this thing? This is my small piece of the interweb where I hope to share my travels, food experiments, and bumps in the road as I figure out how to live abroad. Family and friends always have a bit of difficulty pinpointing where I am, or what it is I’m doing, so a blog seems like a natural solution. I’m optimistic for this endeavor, but it can only improve with feedback from YOU. Please read, peruse and explore to your heart’s content, and let me know what you think. And if you’re wondering where this weirdo blog name came from, check out the “Hello” tab on the top. Thanks for stopping by, and I can’t wait to share this thing called life with you.
