Not so Exciting European Life

While I love keeping this blog, I have to admit that it puts pressure on us to live glamorous European lives. Most of the time, we simply don't. These past few weeks are a good example. Recently, we have been just like any other young, working couple trying to stay afloat in today's economy. I have been working quite a bit (9 days in a row and counting) and have been spending the early evenings catching up on sleep and spending time with Schlopy. Jignesh's hours at work have steadily been increasing as well. Thus, we have not been doing anything extraordinary or overly thrillng. In fact, we have hardly seen one another much less any great London sight. So, there has not been much to blog about (maybe that is a good thing for those of you forced to read the blog!).

That said, since we do live in Europe, we (or at least I) cannot go too long without doing something exciting! So, tomorrow we are off to Lisbon, Portugal for the weekend. When I travelled through Europe in college, Lisbon was on my list of cities to see. Unfortunately, I never made it there. I really don't know what to expect of Lisbon and I have to admit that I don't know a lot about Portugal. It is a good thing I have a flight to inform myself of the city!

You guys are working so hard! You just dispelled all my thoughts that Europeans are lazy and drinking tea all day long.

Have fun in Lisbon!!
