Final Post on Living & Traveling Overseas

*Day 31 of 31 days of Traveling & Living Overseas with Kids

**All stories are true.


Traveling overseas is an adventure

and with children it’s a journey

from learning more about yourself to

recognizing when the kids are just plain exhausted.

IMG_6439You’ll come across weird sightings like this black light in our bathroom in Turkey.



To sitting on the Mountain where Jesus preached the Beatitudes


You’ll see your kids grow and develop a wider worldview,


and overcome obstacles they wouldn’t have tried before.


Sometimes you’ll feel a bit wonky,


Or maybe even dirty…


so clearly life’s not always going to be as easy as floating in the Dead Sea,

but seeing the world is worth it all!


I would live in Tel Aviv…

**All stories are true.


It’s like the New York City of the region

but cheaper, prettier and probably safer than our American counterpart.

IMG_9693It reminds me of Japan where I can walk, bike or taxi most places

and where personal driving & parking is a hassle.


All in a day you can get an Israeli breakfast, Mexican for lunch and Asian for dinner.

All within walking distance and oh the food is good!


I can also wear the clothes I feel comfortable in without being concerned of offending others.

And we also had a fabulous stay because we stayed in a great AirBnB apartment!


This is a city I could see us living & thriving in!



I would live in Morocco…

**All stories are true.


I could learn French easily!


The ferry boat from Morocco takes us to Spain and in Spain there’s delicious food,

delightful sangria & the gateway to Europe.


Morocco has both mountains & oceans.


There’s fresh egg guys in the medinas,

Why does the brown eggs make me like them more???

Also because of their culture, they typically grow seasonal and organic produce

which is an added benefit!


  I would buy more rugs than I did and would consider opening an etsy shop to sell rugs

and hopefully create a co-op business for those in need.


Other than the country you live in currently, is there another country you dream of living in?

On the Flip Side

**All stories are true.

Yesterday’s post was on itching to travel but there’s also the indications that the kids (& I) are ready to be home again.
When the kids request vegetables and look for healthier foods beyond pizza, that’s a clue they are yearning for home and home cooking.
Or when they ask for a quiet moment where I can read aloud to them reminiscent of our daily life at home 

And another sure fire sign is when they sleep in past their normal early bird hour in the hotel beds. The adventures are not as thrilling as they were at the beginning of our journey.
