We certainly didn’t intend to live in Belgium. My husband Dan, a Vice president of HR in the US and Canada for a major French company, and I, as an HR consultant for an international consulting firm, loved to travel to Europe. We went as often as we could.
Our interests were, for the most part, transportable. Dan is an avid runner who routinely logged 5-6 miles a day. He loved exploring foreign cities at a jogger’s pace. I loved drawing, painting, and flea markets, all of which were even more fun in a new location. We both loved languages and people.
