Yes, I’ve been somewhat silent, but life has been spinning by rapidly. The past two weeks, I was in a heretofore unexplored part of the country, to me. And during my time there, I found out I got a job and therefore will be moving to this city:

Seattle from the Ferry

I didn’t just stay in the city, however, during my trip. I fulfilled one of my goals for the year and went camping. Good choice, because I saw beautiful things such as this:

Hurricane Ridge Sunset

This and much more, all within a few hours’ drive from my new home.

The next few days will be spent packing and then I will embark on a four-day drive across the United States. I’m simultaneously excited–I’ll see many states I’ve never seen–and scared–I dislike driving.

So yes, I have been and will be very busy, what with moving, a new home, and a new job. But never fear, the radio silence won’t last too long and I will continue with the scheduled programming about my recent travels in Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, and Finland. Stay tuned for those adventures and future ones too.

And if you haven’t guessed yet, I’m moving to Seattle.
