Friends, I’m currently enjoying life on a different continent, spending 25 blissful days in beautiful Switzerland with my family. I’m seeing some of the most gorgeous landscapes that the world has to offer and I’m doing a whole lot of unplugging and very little work.
It’s glorious, friends.
So you may be surprised to hear that when I have access to Wifi, I’m also enjoying watching some of my favorite shows on Netflix. To be honest, having a little taste of my “ordinary” life is very soothing and comforting, especially since I get to keep enjoying something that was always a highlight of my day.
And here’s something really interesting: the streaming options in Europe are slightly different than the options I had back home. For example, I’m currently in season 10 (of 11) of Frasier, and I had hoped to finish off the series, bit by bit, during my vacation. I was disappointed to see that it isn’t an option over here, but that disappointment disappeared instantly when I saw that I could watch The Big Bang Theory (a series that you cannot watch in streaming format in the states, and so I’ve been slowly working through the discs through the old school mailers that Netflix still offers for a low monthly fee).
Back at home, I usually watch an episode or two of something light and fun while winding down to fall asleep, and I’m doing the exact same thing here. It’s really helped me with my jet lag, and it’s provided me with something very routine in the midst of lots and lots of NEW. It’s also a great way for this introvert to have some recharge time! And it seems that I’m certainly not the only one sneaking in my Netflix time here and there!
I absolutely love being a Netflix Streaming subscriber, and the fact that I can still access so many great shows I already love even while traveling makes me love this company even more!
Have you ever traveled out of the country but continued to watch your beloved Netflix? I’d love to hear where you went and what you loved to watch!
