The Journey Home: The Final Destination

Wow, it’s been almost eight months since I last blogged about our landing on American soil. So much has happened since then I hardly know where to start the telling. My family and I have come a long way since that night we stumbled sleepily towards our hotel room and waiting beds.

So, this is Texas, our final destination and my family and I are smack dab in the middle of it all. When we first heard we were heading to Texas none of us thought we would ever get used to it. Texas is certainly a far cry from the European lifestyle of outdoor café bistros we are used to patronizing. However, Texas has a lifestyle of its own. Its beauty is reflected in its people’s love for their state as well as appreciation of the bounties the land itself delivers. While I contemplated the heat index that I would have to endure I tried to make as many trips out to explore during the cooler months.

During a night out with friends my husband and I had the opportunity to experience South by Southwest. South by Southwest (aka SXSW to locals and fans) is a festival that concentrates on promoting films, music, and interactive connections with the people who attend it. The night was fun and full of sights and sounds from celebrity sightings, street musicians, and television networks promoting new shows. IT was an entertaining and fun night. I look forward to attending SXSW 2014 which is right round the corner as the festival is usually held near the beginning of Spring in the month of March. In 2014 the festival runs from Friday March 7 through Sunday March 16.

The night we weren't expecting to happen but it did. what a great experience to run into.

Since that night we have discovered that Texas is not just a huge empty desert, but a large community of people who really love where they live. I have really enjoyed visiting the beautiful lakes and parks here. My husband has discovered the sport of fishing which he is finding is not as easy as it may seem. We had a chance to explore the Capitol in Austin. The history and architecture here is just as grand and rich as in Europe. I look forward to discovering more of Texas and the people in it.  Now a new journey has begun as I close one chapter to begin another, and rediscover  America again. I hope that you will be there discovering it with me.

Hi, my name is Busanee, but most people just call me Bu. I am finally going to be graduating! I know I can't believe it either. School is done, I just moved to a huge new city in Texas, and I am job searching while trying to rebuild my writing and social media skills and get back to blogging. It is my hope that other readers might take the time to follow me on my journey in a new chapter of life. Please, feel free to give me some feedback through comments, until then enjoy the medicine of laughter!
