My site has been dormant for far too long and I have decided it is time for a revamp and resurrection of sorts. I would like to get back to writing about the things that first got me into blogging which is sharing my experience as a foreigner living in another country. I began my original blog many years ago to keep our family and friends up to date on how and what we were doing during a three month stay in Germany. During those three months my husband and I enjoyed ourselves and found that life here really appealed to us. When we left to go back to Canada, which is where we had been living at the time, although we dreamed of returning permanently, we never thought it would actually happen. However, in 2008 my husband found himself presented with an interesting job opportunity within his company. We decided that in spite of having just purchased a home a few months prior that we had to pursue it. Just months later in June of 2009 we put our house on the market, packed up everything we owned and jetted off to a new life in Germany.
Life has been good here for us and we found a nice apartment and settled into a lovely small village located near his work, which is where we have resided for the past nine years. However, this year we decided to make a big change and began the process of finding a house to purchase as we had outgrown our apartment. This was an interesting process to say the least and it was vastly different from our experience of searching for and purchasing a home in Canada.
Fast forward a few painful months to today, where we are currently in the planning stages of renovating the house we close on & officially take possession of next month. It is this experience that I would like to document and share.
Once everything is official, I will share more details, including photos and our plans for our property.
