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.

      Love To You!

    Love To You!

  4. I’m looking forward to reading the interesting journey through your life! This is an excellent idea! Have fun with this! ❤

  5. Holly, Enjoying your blog …. but please ‘friend’ request me on FB, or email me – have mislaid your email address …..

  6. Holly, I just saw your inspiring side- your life looks like a mirror to mine

  7. Holly …

    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!


  8. 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?

  9. 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…
