We have been in Europe for one whole year as of this week! I cant believe the time has passed so quickly!
We were very fortunate to start off on the right track and find a great house on our first full day here. We love our house, our location and living in Germany.
We have made so many new friends and welcomed old friends to the new country.
We've been most fortunate to be able to travel to so many new places. During our first year here we traveled to:
Belgium- Bruges & Brussels
France- Paris & Strasbourg
Luxembourg- Luxembourg City
The Netherlands- Amsterdam & Zandvoort
The Czech Republic- Prague
Italy- Rapallo, Portofino, Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Bari, Venice, Treviso
Greece- Rhodes, Mykonos, Katakolon, Olympia, Santorini
Germany- too many to count!
Not to mention all of the places J has been for work- Spain, multiple stops in Africa, Turkey, Bulgaria, Romania, etc.
We conceived our first child, J had a milestone birthday and we flew back to the States twice- once to my home state and once to his for his brother's wedding.
We bought a car, attended our first wine festival, pumpkin festival and Christmas market.
We survived our first German winter.
We hosted several visitors in our new land and enjoyed showing them around.
It has been a fantastic first year abroad and we are really looking forward to our next!
