International life is not all excitement and adventure. Sometimes you’ve got to do the boring stuff, like laundry and grocery shopping. And since my mom let me know that she loves it when I post the mundane stuff here, as well as the exciting… Today you get the grocery store, but never fear! When the [...]
We had a beautiful afternoon. Angela and I were having a fantastic drive to downtown Houston, sunshine streaming through the open roof of the Jeep, excited to see the unusual and very cool Illuminarium with her boy and we were all smiles. How could anybody have a bad day when you have the company [...]
When I left Houston to move to Brazil, and then to the UK, I left behind a really fantastic group of friends from my photography club, but thanks to Facebook I’ve still been able to stalk all of their beautiful photos online. I had seen a few posted showing “Architects of Air” and had been [...]
What happens when you’re in Brazil, and you realize you’re just days away from missing a very important US deadline? When your husband’s green card is in jeopardy because he’s been out of the country too long? When you have to get back RIGHT NOW? You make some very hurried last minute arrangements, pack as [...]
When I arrived here in Jundiai, I was having a really hard time understanding what anyone said in Portuguese. I was really disappointment with myself. I had expected to be just fine since we’ve lived in the country before, and had become quite proficient before we left just a year ago. I know a year [...]
The sun rises across the city from our balcony as the sound of early morning traffic starts out quiet and slow, but gradually grows louder and faster. By the time the sun is casting shadows across the buildings, the trucks are in full roar. Within thirty minutes of sunrise someone with a microphone and [...]
I got to go in to the office with Brian today. True, it may not be our favorite way to spend a Saturday morning, but he had an important meeting while the boss is in town and I really wanted to finally see where he spends his days. The four of them sat behind [...]
While browsing around the online maps of Jundiaí, I found an odd looking area that didn’t quite look like a park, but definitely wasn’t any kind of apartment or shopping area. There were trees, and row upon row of smallish boxes. And it was a BIG area. Zooming in, I couldn’t believe what I was [...]
The days are floating by. Brian heads off to work, and I open the sliding glass door to our small veranda and let in the cool morning air and the sounds of the city. I see the park behind the hotel, full of green trees waving in the breeze. Flocks of green parakeets bouncing [...]
How is it possible to not be excited by monkeys in the wild? I mean, sure, if you’re in survival mode and they’re attacking you then you’re probably not a fan, but everybody else? They are just too fascinating, and in this case adorable, to ignore. Remember my new Brazilian friend, Lu? She is Brian’s [...]
Our mission for the next two months: Get to know the area and find a place to live. This? This is not our first rodeo. This will be my third international move, and Brian’s fourth. I wouldn’t say we’ve got it down to a science (it’s way too messy and overwhelming to think it could [...]
Who are these people?
Peg and Brian - An American photographer and her hot Scottish husband, expats and slow travelers out in the world and writing about it. Along the way we hope to see amazing sights, meet interesting people, stay in roach free lodgings and stay alive. So far, so good (except for the roaches).
