We’re Coming Home…

Oh, how time flies.


Just over two years ago, I posted big news on this blog. We were moving to Europe. I said that we were scared, nervous and unsure of what the future held but that we’d decided to hold hands and embark on the adventure together.

It feels as if we’ve been living in a parallel universe where even some of the smallest everyday things present new and confounding challenges. We’ve visited 16 countries in 24 months and have made every effort to take full advantage of this opportunity. Our group of close friends, both locals and fellow expats, have enriched the experience. Alas, all good things must come to an end.

In the next two months, Bo and I will be turning over our Swiss visas and finding a brand new address in New York City.

While we still have more than 20 cities left unvisited on our European travel list and will miss Switzerland’s natural beauty, I hear that Europe is only a quick overnight flight from New York.

    how exciting! I keep trying to tell my husband we should move to London for a year – I think it would be an amazing experience. So awesome that you tackled so many countries in so little time! On a side note – where were you standings r the NYC picture? I’m headed there in a month (first time!) and would love a good shot of the city!

      It was awesome Ashleigh! We are actually in Brooklyn, standing right near Brooklyn Bridge Park. You should go over to Brooklyn on a Sunday to experience Smorgasborg (http://www.smorgasburg.com/) as it’s DELICIOUS!

    Wow. Cannot believe it has been two years. Too bad you can’t stay for a few weeks of just travel, no work, at the end of it to hit more of the cities on your list.

    • ashleyd May 20, 2015 / 7:45 am

      Yup, Abby, it’s flown by so quickly. I agree – we both wish we could travel a bit more before we leave but we can’t complain. It has been an amazing experience!

      I was about to ask, what was Theodora’s response? I bet there was some jumping and screaming.

      I live vicariously through my favorite bloggers sometimes. Haha.

      • ashleyd May 20, 2015 / 2:45 pm

        Yes, it is fair to say that she is very excited!
