I would live in Morocco…

*Day 27 of 31 days of Traveling & Living Overseas with Kids

**All stories are true.

Because….

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?

I would live in the Paris Airport…

**All stories are true.

Unfortunately I can’t find any of the pictures I snapped of the Charles De Gaulle Airport.

But I was impressed when we were there for a few hours in a layover.

~It has cold drinking fountains for free.

~There are comfy lounge couches that we fell asleep on.

~There’s a piano in Terminal K free to play.

~Free wifi, that actually works.

~Fresh & Healthy food stands

Have you ever encountered an airport that you just loved?

An Unexpected ER Visit

*Day 25 of 31 days of Traveling & Living Overseas with Kids

**All stories are true.IMG_9240

I got a call from the Arabic preschool explaining Hallmark fell off the slide and his arm was hurt.

It was my first experience with the ER and I was thankful for the great care we received!

This country is known for it’s medical tourism

and most doctors are trained in Western countries

such as Canada, America & France.

The parking was hardest and the hospital was in a congested area.

Thankfully there was valet parking for those going to the ER

which made me have a sigh of relief.

Many of the staff spoke English which was quite helpful as my Arabic is nearly zilch.

They were friendly and timely.

They consulted with a pediatric orthopedic without delaying or our asking.

And the x-rays and total visit cost less than $50!!

IMG_9236We entertained ourselves with selfie pictures,

granola bars & water (I keep a stash in the van),

texting out messages to family

and playing jelly splash on my phone.

Daddy came to the rescue and helped us get home.

Have you had to get urgent medical care in a foreign country?

What was your experience?

On the Flip Side

*Day 23 of 31 days of Traveling & Living Overseas with Kids

**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.
