Life is Good! But it's time for a change, and more adventure! I'd like to share the whole experience of preparing then actually making a reality of expatriating, and moving to a new country. It's an exciting, and slightly scary move full of possibility . I'm looking forward to learning a new language and making new connections with the people who share our spirit of adventure. This blog is my way of continuing my connection with my friends and family in the States. Sooooo here it goes! :)

  1. what a cute greeting! i hope that you had a great holiday; with each day that passes, you’re one day closer to your move! enjoy those that you love, overdose on things you think you might miss (like crushed ice!-ja!) and enjoy each day of your life’s journey! (you seem to have a strong grasp on the final one!)

    • Thanks for the sound advice and wonderful encouragement ! I’ll start the overdosing on my favorites pronto! I want to look back on this time and feel good about my preparations and have no regrets about the things I should have done. Life is good! Cheers!

      • i’ll never forget one rainy season in costa rica.. we were having a brutal one, as hurricane after hurricane barreled through the caribbean and moisture was pulled from the west (pacific) to the north east and of course across us… i was stranded in town w/a nother torrential rain. my feet were wet.. my clothes were wet.. i was tired of mud and clothes that would never dry and i was at a bar (one of two places in that village) and watching (?) an american sports something.. the television paused for a commercial, and there was a burger king commercial, showing a soft bun and thick burger and french fries and coke on ice and i thought, ‘oh… how i wish i had that!’

        i really never cared for thick burger king burgers, but at that moment, i missed that (junk?) food so much!

        now i can laugh.. it’s part of growing!!!!
