Back to the roots for a happy occasion

I've bought an expensive gift, a nice dress and some accessories. I am off to a family event and a few days of indulgence in everything that is sweet and good about Home Country (since I don't live there anymore I don't have to deal with all the things that are just crappy and dull). See you next week.

Enjoy your trip! Sounds like you're going to a wedding :)

Thanks and well guessed ;-) I've been at my sisters wedding. I don't know why I always tend to be so secretive on this blog, especially since I'm not like that in real life. Maybe it's a weird compulsive blogger habit.

It's a complicated thing, I guess -- if one of your colleagues knows you're going to her wedding, and happens to read this blog, they'd easily figure out that it is yours... Anyway, I hope it was nice!

Yeah, maybe bloggers do understand this dilemma. Sometimes it would be much easier to be open about who I am and what I do. I don't mind at all if other bloggers know who I am, but I think my colleagues would find it extremely strange that I discuss my work in cyberspace. But who knows, maybe they are undercover bloggers as well.

Anyway, thanks for asking. It was a very nice trip, a beautiful wedding and a fun party. My sister and her husband makes a great couple so it was all the right ingredients for a happy day. We were also collecting ideas, as Fiance and I are getting married soon.

Oh, wedding plans make this even more exciting, of course! Good luck for all the preparations! We're still somewhat shying away from planning a wedding so far from where we live, and I don't want to put all the work on my family... if you do get married in home country, I'd be interested to hear how all the organization works out!

hi again. sorry, it took me so long to reply here, but i've been too busy too keep up with the blog lately. we are getting married here where we live which obviously makes things easier. on the other hand many of our friends might not be able to make it because of the distance, so it's difficult. we also considered the home country option, but since we're from different countries (neither of us from the country we live in now)it would also involve international travelling for at least half the guests.

don't worry, I'm not very fast answering at the moment, either.
It sounds like for you getting married where you live is the best option -- for us it's more like international travel for almost everyone vs. just for us, plus a few who live in yet other countries. I think you also wrote that you might stay for longer, while we'll most probably move on after finishing the PhD, so we don't feel very connected here, so at least at the moment we wouldn't really want to have the wedding here.
