I have been doing this whole "expat" thing for only 2.5 years, and oh what fun we have managed to pack into those years. We moved to Dusseldorf, Germany from the U.S. for my husband's job. I have to admit, when I met him 20 years ago I couldn't have imagined the fun that we would have exploring the world. We married in 1995-yep, I'm old-and the craziness started soon after. We moved to Connecticut, Indianapolis, Orange County, CA, Denver and then on to Germany. I have to say that my "home" will always be in Orange County...sorry to my family, but it has amazing memories since my boys grew up there!
We have two wonderful boys who I call the "teenage expats". They are amazingly versatile and tolerant of all of our moving and although I have doubted it occasionally, I am sure that moving them around the world, will not be the cause of them being in counselling when they are older!
When we moved to Germany we brought along a few of our pets....
Yes, we really did ship the frog!!
During our time in Europe, we have been fortunate enough to travel quite a bit. There are so many amazing places to visit. One of the our family favorites is Scotland and one of our least favorites was Barcelona, not because of the city, more because of the circumstances!
My passions are photography, travel, my family, our dog and the ocean. On this journey, I will tell you all about our lives, as well as our adventures and it's not always pretty.
So, sit back, grab a coffee, a wine or perhaps my favorite, a vodka and enjoy, because after all...It's About the Journey!
