time to let go….

so we’ve been in Atyrau, kazakhstan for 2 weeks now and it’s time to move on…….blogs.  This afternoon someone asked me if I was homesick already, homesick for Thailand?  to be completely honest, no.  Well actually what I’m missing right now are the Friday night massages that my hubby and I use to go to.  Otherwise I think we’ve moved on quite nicely.

And so now to just completely move it’s time to shut down this blog and move on.  Time to embrace our new adventure, our new life. So to farewell Thailand and Sea, Sand and Shells here are my photo’s from our last year in Thailand.











IMG_0155 many of the photos are from the Ancient City.

It was only after our trip there did I realize that I have still so much more to see and do in Thailand.  Even my four years there were not enough.  Someday maybe I’ll go back.

Thanks so much for keeping company here at Sea, Sand and Shells.  I do hope you’ll come and visit me at my new blog and Come into our Yurta!

happy corner viewing!

two weeks ago

this group of men came into our home in Thailand and packed our things.


it was 3 days of crazy busyness.  they went through each room separating what we were going to leave behind in Thailand for storage and what we were going to bring with us to Kazakhstan.  they worked hard and carefully and I was impressed.  None of them were big men to say the least but they were strong moving things around with ease.

on the third day which was a Friday and with the house empty it finally hit me hard that we were moving. As I shared previously I was sad, sad that we were leaving such a wonderful place, a place where we met beautiful people and made friends with them, also a place we called home.

But all things come to an end we felt that it was time to move on.

IMG_0004IMG_0047IMG_0088IMG_0112IMG_0125 the last photo is truck # 2 leaving with our things.  right now our things are on a ship headed to Hamburg, Germany.  I cannot wait till they arrive here in Kazakhstan…….in another 3 months (sigh).

in the meantime, well we have a settling in kit we are living out from and making do with what we have. (it always amazes me at what little we can live with!!)

p.s. i should be going live with the new blog soon.  I need to be done with this one!!

corner view – home place

Corner View is a weekly appointment - each Wednesday - created by Jane, where bloggers from all corners of the world share their view on a pre-arranged theme.

this weeks theme is Home Place…..

oh where to call home?……. my heart will always belong to my small home village of Pari in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea.  But as you know we’ve moved again and so right now we have a new home place – one that we’ll adopt and hopefully make many wonderful memories as a family.
