Onward to Indonesia!

Today is the day I depart for Indonesia. I am extremely sad to leave Scotland. Living here was a dream of mine for a decade, and I'm very sad I wasn't able to live here longer. But, I'm glad I got the chance to live here at all, and I know this is a place I'll always come back to.

I'll be offline for a few days while I'm in transit. I've been promised the internet connection in our new place will be up and running when we arrive, so I'll be back online as soon as possible!

Before I go I just want to thank you all so much for reading my continued planner angst while preparing for this move, and last year's move too. You are probably tired of reading posts about moving!

Hopefully Indonesia will open all kinds of new planner possibilities for me and I'll have new and exciting planners and notebooks to write about.  And don't forget the upcoming gladiator-style battle of Filofax vs. Moleskine! That should be fine planner entertainment indeed. ;)

Thanks again everyone! I plan to be back with you soon.

  8. May you and your family have a safe trip and a wonderful life in Indonesia. It's sad we couldn't meet whilst you were here, but who knows, maybe one day I end up in Asia as well and we can meet. I'll be looking forward to reading all about your adventures and planners!

  12. Thank you so much everyone!

    We are in Singapore for a couple of days, and it's amazing here! I've already seen a bunch of different kinds of notebooks including ecosystem (which I reviewed here: http://www.plannerisms.com/2010/05/ecosystem-lined-journal.html ) I also saw a planner with monthly and weekly views at the same time similar to the Gakken StaFul Rabbit planner I reviewed here: http://www.plannerisms.com/2010/11/gakken-staful-schedule-2011.html There's great stationery here!!

  14. Thanks nickynic! Unfortunately I'm in our hotel room all day with my ill son while H is in meetings. Poor little guy has a rotten cold and I'm hoping a rest day will help him get a little better before our flight tomorrow.

    But I will let you know the next time I come up and we can try to meet up then! :)

  15. Ooh, I hope your son will feel better soon! Have a safe trip onwards to Jakarta. Do let me know next time you're here. Hopefully before July, as we'll be moving back to The Netherlands then. In the meantime, I look forward to reading your blogs!

    Good luck settling in - you'll have a wonderful time in Indonesia!
