Our adventure began in 2012, when darling husband was offered an overseas post. I bid my colleagues and the Working Spouse lifestyle, “Auf Wiedersehen” and became what was once titled, “Trailing Spouse” but in today’s world is probably something else. The children planned where to spend their “Fall Break,” “Winter Break,” “Ski Break,” and “Spring Break” from the American School. Seven years later, the oldest child is a University of Michigan graduate paying his dues as a policy wonk in Washington, D.C.; while the youngest one is about to become an American School alum on her way to Trinity College Dublin. As for our Foxhound, to whom we promised a dog-friendly life in exchange for nine hours in a plastic crate flying across the Atlantic, his has truly been a dog’s life. He travels across Europe with us; chases trout in Austrian lakes; and eats Pommes at the Hütte on every weekend hike.
But now our time in The World’s Most Livable City is coming to an end. Naturally the Foxhound has a few thoughts about that.
So here we are. And here’s where we’ve been. Follow along to see where we’re going. Welcome!
