That’s right! We are in the final days now! By the time this posts, it will officially be 9 days until Whitney and I are heading home. Crazy right?! It’s hard to believe it has already been 18 months since we moved (and 18 months since we have been home!). Details of our upcoming tripContinue reading “Almost Christmas….and home !”

Duiken in het Nederland
…and I’m back! Apparently I like to plan all my major activities close together. This weekend Shane and I drove to the village Scharendijke in Zeeland, which is a province in the south of the Netherlands. Here, we completed our PADI Advanced Open Water certification! The drive down was only 3 hours and 15 min,Continue reading “Duiken in het Nederland”
eseb 2015/Laussane & Noorderzon
Remember the days of book reports in middle/high school? Remember how you always waited until the very last minute to start working on it (don’t kid yourself, everyone did)? The night before it was due, there was a frantic rush to find the cliff notes (had all the free sites saved) and the constant battleContinue reading “eseb 2015/Laussane & Noorderzon”
Rome, Italy !
(Ever noticed that all of our post titles end with an exclamation mark? Seems we are easily excited!) So, as Whitney alluded to in the previous post, we also visited Rome during Sufrinko Fest 2015. I guess I should first apologize for posting this by, what is now, over a week since they left. SorryContinue reading “Rome, Italy !”
Look Who We Found !
The Sufrinkos! 😊 And they were here for 9 days of Shwitastic European fun! The trip was split into three parts. We started in Groningen, jetted off to Rome for a few days in the middle, and ended in Amsterdam. I’m going to take The Netherlands portion of our adventure. Shane will continue with RomeContinue reading “Look Who We Found !”
Happy New Year !
We Went to Amsterdam! Well, not for New Year’s Eve. We stayed here in Groningen for that which was an experience in itself. Fireworks are legal here for only three days (Dec 30 – Jan 1) and during that time you can expect to hear them non-stop. The legal fireworks aren’t so huge butContinue reading “Happy New Year !”
Merry (Almost) Christmas !
I would just like to start out by saying that the city right now is just beautiful. So many lights everywhere! Each street has its own unique set. There are candles, twinkling diamonds, icicle lights, you name it. It actually makes it easier for giving directions… “Meet me on the street with the sparkling holly!” It’sContinue reading “Merry (Almost) Christmas !”
The first few days…
Well, it’s been a few days now and I think we have started to get the hang of the Groningen/Dutch lifestyle. To keep things a little more straightforward, I’ll just break it up into days. This may turn out to be a long post, as we have a fair amount to share. *Warning: Don’t expectContinue reading “The first few days…”
