Three Things on Tuesday ~ or not

It's the first Tuesday of the month, so it's time for my Three Things on Tuesday list.
Wow, that sounds as if I've been on it for years or something like that, instead of having done it just one time. And the thing is... I'm not sure how to do it this month. This month that will be quite different from normal months. Very different.

As in living on the other side of the world for a month different.

Yep. We're spending our October on Curaçao.

I know… it sounds like a dream. And it is. But although it’s officially a vacation, it won’t be a 30-days-on-the-beach-period. It will be a let’s-see-if-we-could-live-here-period.
There are lots and lots of reasons for that. And not only good ones, though most of them are. And the thruth is that we are both adventurers by nature and we are very excited about this new chapter in our lives. We have jobs that we can do from everywhere, so why not from a tropical island?

But… I am running into a bit of a problem with my Three Things here. On my Dutch blog I have listed three blogging goals. Restoring old posts, adding tags and categories, tweaking the design, things like that. But I know I can’t possibly do the same things here. It will take too much time. And the writing goals I also shared on my Dutch blog… not very interesting to blog about here five Tuesday in a row. I mean, I can’t even quote some of the things I’m writing, since my writing is in Dutch. Of course I can translate, but it won’t be much fun for you to read, since I can’t translate whole books for you. And I doubt I will be able too. Lately I am very frustrated by my limited ability to express myself in English. I know my English isn’t bad, but it always seems just a little bit off. Oh well, never mind. That's not what I wanted to talk about.
I also stated a few personal goals (three times three is what I’m going for this month on the Dutch blog), but how can I fill a blog with exploring, resting, getting better and enjoying my stay?

So… I’m thinking I’d rather skip the Three Things project on this blog for October and instead just document our stay here. With some words, but mostly with pictures, I think. It might be fun to try and share both the "tropical paradise" and the "daily life" aspects of this month.

I prepared this post before we left and it probably will be up before I get the chance to get online. I would like to post a full 30 days in a row (oh, me and my love of organized goals – isn’t that what some bloggers call OCD?), but I’m not sure if I can pop in today. We’ll see. And if I can’t this may be the right time for me to let go and relax…
I mean, that's what you should do when this is where you live for a month, isn’t it? (not literally on that beach, but close to it)

  1. oh wow! wow! wow! wow!
    you should post pictures and a few words whenever you can this month, because i want to see more of that island. :) but mostly, you should relax and enjoy your time there!
    and if you end up there, it's not any farther away than the Netherlands for me to come visit . . . and it's sunnier. :)

    1. I will try to relax, yes!
      And wouldn't that be fun, visiting here! Who knows...may be someday.
