Behind The Scenes lets you know what we have been up to, along with our video games, movies and comic book haul. 


 

How is it going, Silvers? It has been a while since we’ve decided to share a bit of what is going on with our geeky lives behind the blog. So secretive huh? The truth is that even geeks like us have their right to stay away from the computer for a while. Specially with such a BIG change: new jobs, new responsibilities, family gatherings! – Yes, because now at least one of us is close to the family, and it’s amazing to have that extra support from your loved ones.

So, what has happened since we’ve decided to move out of the UK?

 

1. We’re now living in France

Duh.

So we packed our bags and are now living in a sunnier place. Fenrile’s hometown is located in South of France and we couldn’t be happier. Yes, we do miss getting our weekly comics but hey – we can’t have everything!

Moving from the UK
We ain’t gonna lie. We did love our flat in the UK.

 

New House
…But we brought all our geeky stuff with us and our new place is even more awesome!

 

This was a very positive change for Nya who has been homesick for a while. Even though her hometown is in Portugal, being now near the sea makes her so much happier and productive. Switching from the office routine to being a freelancer has been working really well for her (now we just need to convince her to stop working on weekends… but she’s getting there).

 

After all, even geeks need sea and sun!

 

 

2. We’ve visited Croatia

Right after we left the UK (barely had time to unpack) we went straight into a trip to Croatia. This is not a travel blog but Dubrovnik (aka King’s Landing for you GoT geeks) is too beautiful to not share at least a few pictures. We both always wanted to visit the city, and not only because it was a main setting in the Game of Thrones. I mean, look at those views!

From one place to another. Enjoying the nomad life for a while.

 

Dubrovnik was even better than we imagined

Sort of a geeky destination!

 

 

3. We got engaged!

These are the big news! It’s official, we’re engaged. The proposal happened at Trsteno Arboretum aka ‘Tyrell (High)Garden‘ (Game of Thrones) during our trip to Croatia.

 

We got engaged!
A perfect setting for a perfect proposal

4. We got new games (ofc)

It wouldn’t be us if there were no games involved. Not only we got three new videogames (Injustice 2, Tekken 7 and WipEout Omega Collection) but we also got back to Magic The Gathering. Well, Fenrile did, and Nya is slowly learning how to play.

This is what we do to relax…or rage!

 

 

5. We went to Cannes Film Festival

We are so lucky! We had invites to the Cannes Film Festival and we got to watch two movies: Jupiter’s Moon (Kornél Mundruczó) and Good Time (with Robert Pattinson). So exciting, specially since Nya had never been to the Cannes Film Festival before. Stepping on that red carpet was so cool!
