Serendipity. That pretty much sums up our life here. I'm a transplanted American, living in the Belgian Ardennes, near Germany and The Netherlands, in an area where three cultures clash and co-exist. I used to have a stress-filled life, working as a management consultant all over the US and Canada. About 10 years ago, my husband and I quit our jobs and moved to Europe. Now we teach English as a second language to business people here. We came here for two or three years. We're still here. 'Nuff said. I love to cook, to travel, to paint and to write. I try to do all of those as often as I can. I hope you'll find here tales of our life as we sometimes struggle with other languages and other ways. You'll also find some paintings. And some recipes, because I love to cook. My husband loves to eat. Perfect!
