I moved from Bakersfield, California in 1997 to marry my Dutch friend. I am a retired psychotherapist, and miss my work tremendously. I am just now learning to paint, using acrylics and watercolors. I miss my California lifestyle, and haven't made many friends here due to lack of fluent Dutch ability. I am so excited when travelling, as I love each country I visit. Eating the foods, seeing the traditions and cultures, and meeting the people has been wonderful. We will move back to California June, 2006 and I will miss so much here in Europe.
