An Anniversary of Sorts

It’s been eighteen years, almost to the day in fact, since we sold the house, sold the car, packed up our things, and arrived in Zagreb, Croatia, to take a one-year contract. Little did we know what life and this wonderful world had in store for us. Of course, we never know, but at this point I can say it’s been a heck of a ride – and I’d do it all again.

One year in Zagreb turned into just over 2, which segued into 3 years in Bangkok, where our daughter was born. Then it was off to Basel, Switzerland, for 4 years (a nice mathematical progression) and then on to Hong Kong, not for 5 years but for 6. We have now been back in Basel for 2 1/2 years and are planning to be here until our daughter graduates from high school.

What comes after that is anyone’s guess. We have had the incredible fortune to live in some great places and to travel to many more. Our traveling days will certainly not end, regardless of what comes next.
