I have been overseas teaching at international schools for 7 years. Married with 2 young children. Normal life- sports, school, dr appointments. Positive- we get to go to Italy/Switzerland/Morocco etc for breaks and cheap. Negative- we really miss our extended family. We go home to the USA at Christmas for 3 weeks and for 7 weeks in the summers. Home is Ohio. We do a lot of entertaining and I love looking for/trying new recipes.
