Living Abroad: One Year and Counting

As of this week we have been living abroad one year. This year in Germany has flown by with plenty of ups and downs. We sat down and looked at what our One Year Report would say.

Covid restrictions, Russia’s war with Ukraine, and troubles with the airlines have not stopped us having a good time over the past year. We made it through a cold, rainy northern European winter. We’re almost through a hot European summer – although different than a hot Georgia summer – without Air Conditioning.

Overall, we are happy to be on this adventure. We have met wonderful new friends and enjoyed the challenges of European living. We have visited 15 different countries with unique experiences in each. Since our favorite part of living abroad is the travel, we put together our favorite travel photos from the year.
