Today's guest is one of my absolute favorite bloggers! Angela is the kind of girl that I would be BFF with, and yes, I know that just from reading her blog. Im completely envious of her writing style and wish I had her way with words. While I may be living in the land of her dreams, she is currently living in one of mine. Ive always thought the Charleston, S.C. area would be a wonderful place to settle down...eventually.
Hi, I'm Angela from Tomorrow is Another Day, and I first discovered Uncorked and Unwined through the MilSpouse Friday Fill-In. I was drawn here by the allure of vino, and kept here by K's beautiful travel stories, delicious recipes, and adorable personality. I also have a teensy obsession with her, because she is living My Dream.
You know how some people have a dream job when they're small? Something that drives them their entire life toward greater accomplishments? Well, I've never really had that kind of ambition. When I was little, I wanted to be a ballerina. Things didn't really work out in that direction once I dropped out of ballet class at age 9. Then when I got older, I wanted to be a psychologist. Until I found out you had to take a Stats class in college. Nixed! My lifelong ambition has been to live overseas. And once I joined the military, then married a fellow military man, that dream became more focused on moving to Germany.
My husband and I love to travel internationally, but the part that makes it most challenging to do on a budget is buying that plane ticket. I love that living in Germany, so much of the world is just a train ride away. There are castles around every bend. More cathedrals than you could visit in a lifetime. Ruins for everyone! BMWs are the cars of the common man. Schnitzel! Strudel! And the chocolate is SO much better!
Of course, this is just my dream world. In reality, I know the snow would crush my soul. Being on the other side of the world from family and friends would be difficult. There are plenty of quirks that would probably drive me to drink, including laundry facilities in the kitchen and tiny bathrooms. But still, I think the adventure would be so worth all of the little... pits in the road!
We've still got about two years left in beautiful Charleston, South Carolina, before we get our next assignment, and I'm loving our experience here. So for now, I'll continue to live my German life vicariously through K's adventures! Have you ever wanted to live overseas? If you've already had the experience of living in another country, did it live up to your expectations?
