I spent the first 18 years of my life in a sleepy town in Upstate NY. Since then I have lived in 16 cities in 9 states in 3 countries. I attended colleges in 3 states. I have a BA and an MA. I have worked for 2 newspapers, 2 museums, a bank, and a tourism bureau. I was a member of both the National Guard and the Army Reserve. Since the birth of my oldest child I have been a stay at home mom. I am the spouse of an active duty service member.
The idea for this blog came after talking to my husband about the difficulty of assimilation into a new culture. I felt more prepared than most people when they head to a foreign country. While I didn’t speak the language, I had studied the history, the culture, and the theories of international communication. I’ll be fine right? Well, yes and no.
This is a collection of my stories. My adventures, the way I see things and the world. This is not chronological progression. These are my travels and adventures through the lens of my experience. Coming to you now from the Eternal City – Rome.
