We Are FINALLY BACK To Blogging!

TIME FOR BREAK

As most of you have probably noticed, we stopped blogging for some time (more precisely for 6 weeks). Any particular reasons? Cez’s unexpected accident in China resulted in cancellation of his Japan cycling, my stay in Europe and an urge to have some time off with no laptops, no Internet and no social media channels.

On top of that, we felt like we needed some more travel inspiration to get back to work with new stories, ideas and budget tips. Do you know this feeling when you sit down in front of your laptop and you lack fresh ideas for your posts? You kinda feel like you burned out as a blogger and story teller?

This is how we felt … and then we realized how desperately we needed a break.

EUROPE, OH EUROPE

I spent 6 amazing and unforgettable weeks in Europe amongst my friends and family in Poland, Holland, Belgium and Crete. I was able to finally catch up with those who I neglected for months while being in China, reading some magazines, cooking, going out, etc. I am now back in China with such a positive energy and new ideas for my blog.

This is what you can expect to read in upcoming few months:

WHAT’S UP WITH CEZ?

While I was indulging myself in eating Dutch snacks, sunbathing on Greek beaches and exploring Brussels, Cez was rehabilitating his knee after surgery. He has been determined to get his knee back to normal as quick as possible and his progress is more than impressive. He started walking slowly, but surely and his positive attitude is now back!  Moreover, he worked a lot on his oral Chinese and well, well… he took me over!  Daily conversations with Chinese native speakers made him much more confident and definitely more fluent. Cez, keep it up!

We met again in Dalang after 6 weeks being apart, had some nice Chinese food and decided to get back to blogging as quick as possible. You can read more about our stories soon and thank you so much for being with us, reading our blog and supporting us all the time.

We both look forward to reading blogs of fellow budget travelers, publishing new posts and helping out those who need a hand with travel issues. We will also publish all guest posts soon!

    Great to have you back guys – we’ve all felt that at some point! See your posts around!

  2. I was wondering where you guys went ;) I’ve been back lurking your blog as we head to Thailand soon! We’re hitting the lower islands (Koh Phangan, Samui and Tao) first – trying to avoid the Full Moon Party… I don’t know… avoid? Not avoid? I’m not too keen on techno, drunk white kids and hangovers.

    1. Agness Walewinder

      LOL, Europe and China. That was a long long time no see. Thailand? Great news, I miss this country a lot. I bet you will be having a lot of fun there, the beaches are just way too stunning. We’ve been to the Full Moon Party hahahah it was wild :)

  3. I can’t wait for the new posts..! :D i’m especially thrilled about the post about Efteling (I love amusement parks!).

    Looks like Cez’s doing quite well, I hope his knee will be back to normal soon! :))

    1. Agness Walewinder

      I did have a blast, indeed. Home was amazing and Cez’s getting better :). He’s sending his greetings to both of you!

  7. I feel kinda, bad, but I thought it was funny when the kids didn’t know Cez’s leg was broken and they started poking at it.
