  17. Hi Amanda! I'm a brand new follower of your blog.... I think I spent hours over the past couple of days going through posts and admiring your adventures. I know its going to sound totally lame, but I feel like I know you. yeah, yeah, I just wrote that. Out Loud. I'm a fellow adventure seeker, born and raised in Israel but I moved to the USA after I met an American sailor aboard the USS Theodore Roosevelt during a port call. We love travel & wine (got married in Tuscany) and love including our daughter Aviv on our adventures (she's 3 1/2 and has been to France, Germany and Israel dozens of times!). I have a photography business and am lucky to occasionally fly abroad for photography commissions. Now that I finished introducing myself and being a dork, I just want to say thank you for being such a positive little corner on the web. I love reading about your travels & life and look forward to following along.


  18. LOVE-EL-LY

  19. As a fellow American expat, can I just say how lucky you are to have access to the military base and Americna products! I could kill for some Easter candy right about now! :) P.S. your neighbors are so darling!

  20. I now think of you every time I use a Mason jar...which I assure you is not near as often as you find uses for them ;)
