... Eefie's Beautiful Mess: Goodbye, Belgium

Apr 25, 2019

Goodbye, Belgium

What if you ever got the chance to move to another country? Would you leave everything behind and start over? Would you take the risk? I would. And I will! We're moving to Malta within a few months and I'm so excited to finally share the news!

Malta is a beautiful island in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, south of Sicily and north of Africa. The weather is truly amazing over there. It is sunny for most of the time and the temperature never drops below zero!

This little paradise is famous for its food, the outstanding coastline and landscapes and it actually has some of the oldest structures in the world. There are some beautiful places I would love to visit, such as the Blue Lagoon, Blue Grotto, the National Aquarium, Popeye Village, Valletta and Gozo. Malta is also well-known for their diving hotspots, which I think is quite interesting. I love a little bit of adventure!

About a month ago, Jeremy came up with the idea to move to Malta. I was pretty shocked, since it came out of nowhere. I honestly didn’t expect anything so impulsive and I told him he was crazy. But was he? I kept thinking about it, over and over again, and the more I thought about it, the more excited I became, especially after some research and seeing beautiful pictures of beaches, waves, happy people and charming houses. He also has a friend who moved over there a few years ago, which will make things a lot easier for us, since we basically don’t know anything about this country.

We talked about it a lot ever since and we both made the decision to just go for it. Jeremy even found a job over there already, so we can’t go back now. It is certain; we’re going to live in Malta! I’m so thrilled, scared and happy at the same time.

I never thought I would ever be able to experience such a big adventure in my life. I always thought our lives would be nice and simple, that’s why I’m so thrilled and happy about our choice. Sure, we ought to miss our friends and family, but we’ll come back and visit every now and again. Especially around the holidays.

This will be a life-changing experience for the three of us and I can’t wait to write blog posts about it to share this amazing journey with you! We still have a lot of work to do and we have to pack a lot of things, but we still have a couple of months left. Jeremy will be leaving on the 4th of July, while I stay with my parents for a few weeks longer until he found a nice place to rent.

Malta is going to be the start of something new and that’s why we want to take as less stuff as we can to really start over. We actually have a lot of things and furniture we don’t even use, so we only want to take our most important possessions, such as photo albums and gifted items. Most of the rest of our stuff will be going to friends and family, the other half will be sold online or will be given away.

I’m really grateful for the opportunity. I can’t wait to discover new places and take long walks on the beach with my family. This will definitely be a dream come true! It won’t be easy the first couple of months because it will take some time to settle in, but we’re ready for something different and I couldn’t be more excited about it!
