Normal Life

My blog posts usually involve some travel experience or a cultural nuance of living abroad.  The truth is, most days are just like everyone else's days...  Pretty normal.  I spend five days a week going to work, coming home, cooking dinner, sitting on my couch for a few minutes and going to bed.  On the weekends, we go out with friends on Saturday night and sleep in on Sunday morning.  It's the same no matter where in the world we go.  This is the part of living abroad that isn't really blog worthy - my life is the same as yours, as everyone's.

And have some fun.

But that's one of the things I love about living abroad.  Life becomes normal even when you spend Thanksgiving sight-seeing and you can't speak the same language as the grocery clerk.  It's normal because everywhere in the world people go about their days doing normal things.  We all have to.  It's life.  Life, no matter where you live it, is pretty much... normal.


  1. It's hard for friends back home to not make a fuss about "life abroad" when the reality is just's just like their life in the states (minus the kids, carpools, etc. though for some of our friends that's the case). May I link to this post - was thinking just yesterday about how life here is often just as it would be there...

    1. Of course you can link. Thanks for actually reading my blog. I can tell Will I now have 4 people who read this. ;)

  2. If you haven't counted me you actual have 5 people that read your blog.

    Love and God Bless,
