March. March should be spring time. Warmer weather, longer days and flowers starting to bloom. We did get a few blooming flowers on the Jacaranda trees, but other than those purple beauties our March was upside down. Will we ever get used to the seasons in the southern hemisphere? I really don’t think so, those […]
Another January has come and gone. Zoooooom! There it went. It’s been a quiet month filled with small things keeping me close to home, but I’ve still found happiness in getting those small things done. This life of international living can sometimes feel very normal. I have chores just like I always have. I still […]
I just finished my second 365 photo project. How did I do? Pretty well. I skipped a few days this past year, but I managed to finish strong. So when it came time to decide if I would do it again this year, I don’t think I really even considered not doing it again. My […]
Saturday’s portagem class only brought a little bit of soreness the next day, and it gave us a taste of the fun that could be had. Being in the gym, seeing the acrobats and the equipment got my gymnast heart beating again. So I talked my new friend into going back with me and trying […]
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 […]
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 […]
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).
