About Us

This blog was created to chronicle the journey we began in 2010. Within one month exactly, we had made the decision to embrace this opportunity, pack up all our belongings and ship them to Bahrain, say goodbye to dear friends and family, and start life in the Middle East. Here’s to living dreams and taking risks for the adventures of a lifetime! Thanks for following our journey.

    I just got an email about your new and exciting lives! The first in many years- I thought I had lost track of you. Watching all of you in the video made me remember our journey in Turkey and shed a few tears of happiness! I have thought of you often with joy and a smile on my face! I would love to see you again! So many great things in both our lives
    Keep in touch and let me know when you need a visitor!
