Adventures Abroad Returns!
Kevin and I packed up our lives in the States and moved to Portugal in 2010. We traveled, hiked the countryside and greedily gobbled up everything our new little country had to offer. Enjoying fresh produce from the farmer's market, fresh bread and fish delivered to our doorstep by trucks that came to the village every day. Picking blackberries and figs in the fields by our house, walking down the hill for a swim then stopping off for a beer and chat with the locals.
We had great stories and adventures so I built a website and named it An Adventure Abroad to share the wonderful experiences, also the silly mistakes that expats make. The more I wrote, people began to notice. The website became recognized by travel blog associations, I was getting invitations to write for online magazines and even International Living asked me to submit paid articles. While I thought my blog was a fun hobby it was becoming successful and I was becoming recognized as a "real" writer! Meanwhile, I had tripped and fallen, walking and climbing steps was becoming more and more painful. Doctors at the emergency room said it was just siatica so I kept hiking and dancing, living my best life.
