How our address became Germany

July 20,2008 we moved to Bremen Germany via Salt Lake City, Utah. My husbands job brought us here for a 2 year assignment. Crossing my fingers and toes it's two years, or however long it takes to build an airplane. Lets hope German efficiency plays well. We left our home, family and friends behind and started this adventure. It's been an opportunity of a life time, we know that, afforded us travel at our finger tips, all things amazing and different from Utah. Change is good I keep telling myself and we will return soon. It's hard to tell yourself that and a 15 year old girl that misses her friends and family dearly. I know we will all look back some day and realize this experience was amazing,but right now I would do anything to wake up and see the mountains outside my window.

Two years...it's hard being away from the people and things that you love. Thanks for sharing!

I'm very impressed. I'm sure it is a great opportunity, but I would find it difficult at times.

I grew up on the West Coast and live on the East Coast now and I still feel a little home sick sometimes.

Awwww, we are thinking of you Miss West, it sounds like the heart is aching for the home front a little bit. (Okay, maybe a lot...?!)

No matter how exciting some places are, they still are not home. Sending you a cyberhug,

Oh Frau.... my heart aches for your homesickness!!! You are SO brave to be so far, and you DO make it look fun! I have moved several times, yet never lived more than 14 miles from where I was born. (Queens, Manhattan, Queens, Manhattan, Queens, Long Island...) Go out & enjoy it! Home will be right here waiting for you whenever you get back. -xoh

You are a brave woman and I know it must be so hard with your 15 year old (I know) but you are giving her the most amazing experience. Home is here and will be here but imagine how many American's never get to step out. Cheers to you! Hugs too.

Kathy, Oops I just left a comment on the other post. I'm sure there are some days you wish you were back home. The pain of being home sick is tough. xoxo
