We were lucky to have a couple of great weather days, so my Dad, cousin Simone, her husband Michael and I went on river-boat tour on the Spreyer one afternoon. I got to spend a lot of time hanging out with my aunts and uncles, as well as my cousin Simone and her 3 daughters, my cousins Marie, Nina and Julie. The last night I was there, we went to dinner to celebrate my uncle's 70th birthday! It was a great trip and I can't wait for my Dad to come back for the next reunion trip!

Mark and I discovered a new expat resource recently through some expat friends that just moved to Switzerland. It is a book called "Know-it-all passport" and it is a great guide for all things in the Geneva-Vaud-and Neighboring France regions. We picked it up from the English bookstore, Books Books Books in Lausanne today (love this bookstore!) and I am already putting things on my to-do list from it! This all-inclusive book is a must for any new expats in Suisse Romandie.

Having a close-knit group of family and friends in San Diego, I was lucky enough to be surrounded by all of my favorite people when I was living in So-Cal. Now having been abroad for over a year, I will officially state that I have a love-love relationship with my webcam! I am grateful to be living overseas in the technology era where calling loved ones back home lets me have a face-to-face conversation. Thank you Skype and Gchat!
