I’m an American woman, mother of four, writer, explorer and traveler. I’ve lived abroad—residing in 4 different countries—for almost two decades, during which time I raised two amazing daughters. At this time, with my daughters now raised, I am settled in London, England, with my life mate, Egil (AKA the biking viking) who bikes 22 miles a day—rain or shine, wind or whatever—and does it with a smile.
The following blog is about my life.
I hope my stories are as engaging as my journey has been and continues to be~
We’re all traveling together through this maze called life; my journey has just been conducted in different languages and within different cultures. It has also involved some unorthodox choices that have led to some interesting experiences—and a few close calls …
I hope you enjoy sharing in my journey and I LOVE feedback.
You also might enjoy my videos:
Above is a video about my travels and adventures that eventually landed me in UK.
Above is our home in Riga, Latvia—before and after renovations—now that was an adventure!
I was fortunate to act as nanny on my daughter’s last band tour of UK and Ireland. Above is a video documenting that journey.
Oh thanks, Lil. This is my commitment: Sharing my story from one end to the other , including our stays in the convent, trips to the Otepaa countryside etc. It’s so much fun recalling those blessed times!
Love To You!
I can’t wait to read more. Sending much love your way!
Thanks Cecilia! It’s so nice to see you this morning. I’ll be adding to this blog again, soon. I hope I see you girls while I’m here.
Love To You!
I’m looking forward to reading the interesting journey through your life! This is an excellent idea! Have fun with this! ❤
Thanks Lillia. It’s fun recalling the journey while still in the thick of it 🙂
I rather like this
Thanks, Tom Ford
Holly, Enjoying your blog …. but please ‘friend’ request me on FB, or email me – have mislaid your email address …..
I just emailed you and will try and friend’s request you on FB… Glad you’re enjoying the blog. 🙂
Holly, I just saw your inspiring side- your life looks like a mirror to mine
I hope we can meet “in the flesh” soon!
just great to see how wonderfully you are still spreading joy and good taste everywhere … I loved Tartu but knew I belonged elsewhere, later on landed in Debre Zeit, Ethiopia, in a story almost as much fun as yours!
Wow, well that was a bit different than Tartu! I hope you’re well and flourishing.
Finding my path took a bit of doing … at the moment I appear to be quite settled in, comfortably retired just across the river from Loudoun and amiably amusing myself crafting in wood and performing weakly on the sax … but change is coming, worldwide, isn’t it …how is London these days?
I just stumbled across your blog with the last entry over 6 months ago….
is this now a grave-site? Shame as I find myself to be an acciental immigrant during troubling times since Brexit & Trumpery and hoped I’d find kindred spirit(s) here.
Hey EuroYank, so sorry for my delayed response. I am still blogging but have been really remiss in recent months as I am once again preparing to move! But this time will, hopefully, be a move into my forever home—Good Lord Willin’ and The Creek Don’t rise, as the saying goes. Although in this case I should probably say Teresa Maybe willin’ and Brexit gets shelved…
