short travel update  
Another quick post :) Am in Berlin right now, we leave here tomorrow for Amsterdam, the last place of our tour. This tour ends on Friday night, and I will be relieved for that, although I've definitely had some fun times while I've been away. Fell in love with Italian food and especially with Venice, which I definitely need to return to one day. Went white water rafting in Austria, and paragliding over St Johanns (also in Austria), both of which were amazing (well, except for the part where our raft flipped over in the river and I got trapped underneath). Was enchanted by Prague and all her magic, and captivated by Berlin's history and amazing mix of historic & contemporary architecture. This is such a short post, and I don't know if I could write enough to ever do these cities justice and describe what I saw, felt, believed, but travelling, oh, travelling is so wonderful. Even if this tour has been tough, the magic of these cities in Europe does more than make up for it.

I am back at Alex's this weekend again, so hopefully at some stage I will start to write a more comprehensive post about my travels and last month in Europe. But it's nice to check in and say hello.

Hope you are doing well (tell me how you've been?)

Oh! Berlin, I have a few online friends from there. Sounds like a lovely place.
I hope you are safe and well.
I have seen pictures of Prague and if it is 1/2 as beautiful in person I would be inclined to stay forever!
Much love and wishes!

You need to know this.
Jade, I'm commenting anonymously because I am too afraid to let you know who is saying this, but someone needs to say it. I'm worried that no one else will. It's on this entry since I can't comment anonymously on a friendsonly entry.

I know how badly that you just want to be loved, but this is the man who caused you more than a year of anguish. You can't give in to him! Remember, he was hitting on you when he was married. He will do the same thing to you. I know how awful it is to be alone, but you can't settle. You deserve so much more than some old perverted man who tricks his children into pulling you closer to him.

Remember how much he disgusted you? Remember how upset he made you? You are rewarding all of these actions by surrendering!!! You are not in love. You are in love with the idea of being loved.

I think you know this. You're just too afraid to admit it to yourself. Be brave, Jade. You're better than this.
