Happy (Belated) Blog Birthday!

Here I am, thinking I am getting quite used to this thing called blogging and almost missed one of the most common posts that bloggers do.......namely: Celebrate the birthday of ones blog!!!

To align to tradition, here is a reflection of my first year as a blogger.....the past year in review if you will:

Blog Birthday: August 7th 2009
Number of posts: 156
The first post:
The most revealing post:
My favourite post (simply because it describes the feeling of really being "Lost in Switzerland")

Since I started this blog, I have
Managed to settle down in Switzerland (all though still feeling pretty lost from time to time ;))
Privately travelled to Sweden (many times), Tuscany, Venice, Como (twice), Cannes, Poland, London, Birmingham, Brussels, Germany (diffrent locations), Paris (a few times), Amsterdam, Rotterdam etc.....
Met Paulo Coelho for dinner after this post:
Had 2 photos chosen for an online travel-guide:
Got "accidentally" promoted at work
Cried in the office 
Started a Facebook fan page for this blog and now have 155 fans

On top of all these things related to my blog, I went from having almost constant back pain, to finally getting the right diagnosis, got a lot  better and am now playing soccer again for the first time in 10 years! I've also tried ice skating again and jumped off a bridge into the Rhein =))
I became an auntie and a Godmother!!!! 
I have met some really nice people! I have laughed, cried, screamed, jumped and danced! I have learned so much about myself, about other people and most importantly, about life. I have been happy, sad, confused, heartbroken, lonely, in love, overwhelmed and disappointed.......and sometimes all at the same time!

....and last but certainly not least, I have Found Love 

In other words, it has been an amazing year!!
Thanks to all of you who have been following and reading my blog! It's been a pleasure!
