It's been one year.....living overseas

It's official I'm an expat!!

But according to wikipedia, " in its broadest sense, an expatriate is anyone living in a different country from where he or she is a citizen," or how about this definition: Expatriates "are described as skilled professionals working in another country, whereas a manual labourer who has moved to another country to earn more money might be labelled an immigrant." So you can call me an immigrant, expat or stay at home Mom all three apply to me.
May 29th marked the date that we moved from Denver, Colorado to Croatia. I do hope you enjoy the pictures of the city I now call home.

Enjoying an afternoon at the coffee shop Gingola with my international friends from Hungary, France, Jordan, Ukraine, Portugal and South Africa.


Fishermen in the distance.



Beautiful sunset.

  4. I don't know what to wish you...It's an anniversary or...just an observation?...How do you fill about that?
    I think it's a great experience to have two such a different and beautiful home places and most of all,to meet and get friends from all over the world.
    How many ordinary people have this opportunity?

  5. Your life must be enriched beyond expectation by such a marvelous opportunity. I wish to live abroad as well. Perhaps someday. Did you ever imagine when your family moved to the US that one day you would leave voluntarily? I know when we did, I couldn't imagine it, yet now I daydream about escaping this hectic life.

  6. Mihaela, you can call it an anniversary. ( I'm happy) but also a good observation, it puts things in perspective you know. Treasure what you have now and so I'm doing my best. Enjoying today.

  7. Angie, never in a million years would I have imagined that! When I was younger, I remember asking my Mom, 'how would things have been if we had stayed in Mexico? would I have gone to College?"..etc.. to be honest, I think our lives would have been very different. Living in the states you have many opportunities to study, work, which also means having a hectic life. I know what you mean.. Hopefully you don't dismiss your wish of living abroad. Everything and anything is possible.

  12. What do you miss most about the States?

  13. Elle, hmmm. I had to think about this, I was inclined to instantly reply,"starbucks!":)
    But what I miss the most are the smiles of my nephews, my daily chats with Mom,and sisters (because of time difference, when I wake up I have to wait 7 hours before I can call and say, "good morning!" and Corn tortillas, I haven't yet mastered the art of making them homemade!
