...but then again, too few to mention

If you think that there haven't many stories about Chania on this blog recently, you are not wrong. And that is because we feel like we've barely been there in 2008. In fact, between January and the end of September this year, we've spent as many days away as we have at home.


And that is part of the reason that we have decided to move on. Sadly this is to be the last entry on 'A lemon tree of our own'.

We left London just under 3 years ago for an adventure around Europe, and to try our hand at living abroad. Our initial journey went through Spain, Qatar, Germany, the Czech Republic, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Serbia, Bosnia, Croatia, Slovenia, Italy, and finally to Greece. We found our flat, and set up a new home, armed only with our backpacks.


We moved again later on when I had some work in Austria, and lived just outside Salzburg for 6 months, then came back to Chania. We've also visited Macau, Miami, Dortmund, Barcelona and Amsterdam along the way. But now it is time to head back home to the UK, and finish the blog.

By the end of October, we will be full-time Londoners again. I'll still be writing at currybetdotnet of course, and we'll still be posting our pictures on Flickr.

We'd both like to say thanks to everyone who has read the blog or got in touch with us about something to do with Chania and Greece. It has been an amazing adventure, with 3 wonderful years spending so much time together as a couple, and we've enjoyed sharing it with you on the web.

Καλή αντάμωση!

Sunset farewell

sad to see your blog closing; please preserve these archives so we can keep coming back to share your memories.

good luck with future ventures.

Martin, that's too bad you're leaving. Came to your blog late but really enjoyed reading your tales- fantastic glimpses of another (sunny) world. Are you moving back to the 'stow. If so, give my regards to Hoe Street.

in a way i envy you. i love london, so does my family (admittedly i wouldn't like to live there permanently).

and there's another reason why i envy you: few haniotes will leave hania to try out a different life; we tend not to be very adventurous.

So long, i wonder if we will see you on our next trip to london...

Martin - for those of us who are avid readers you never explained why you're leaving?

Maybe some reflection? What was great, not so great - what you'll miss - what you won't miss?

And why are you returning home?
