A battle with being an Expat

Fact: when you’re chasing everything you’ve ever wanted, at some point, you’re going to have to leave home and the people and things you love dearly. (I copied this statement)

Adam and I don’t normally write blogs about our “feelings” especially when we are missing things. We try to focus on the positive when we are away because we don’t want our family back home to read our blogs and then feel sad. We want them to see the good, exciting and amazing things that living as expats brings to our lives.


Son of a Beach it’s Hot!!!

When choosing our second city of residence in South Korea, geography an climate played an exceptionally large role. Having come off a stay at our coldest location in Denver which at times seemed to be stuck in perpetual winter status, we opted for a happy medium between the mile high city and our Florida roots that landed us in Busan.


Downtown Delray Beach


First a picture of the community pool in my sister's housing area. Floridians really do live in paradise.

One of the last places I explored with my family, in Florida, was the new Downtown Delray beach area. Here a section of the town was recreated in that old-style architecture feel with shops and restaurants. We checked the place out before having an Italian dinner.


Deerfield Beach


No trip to Florida would be complete with out a venture over to the beach. On both sides (the Gulf and the Atlantic) you have choices. On this day we decided to head to Deerfield beach, which brought back memories.

Brunch and Nature Reserve with Mom



You know life is swell when you can have homemade brunch with your mother. A delicious fruit salad with eggs and an english muffin...yum!

My mom has a great companion dog that gives her lots of company.

Where I Stay For Now


First off a few shots of my pizza and salad dinner I had at the hotel near the SFO airport. Then a shot or two of my standard hotel room's view and interior.

Too Much Faith in Numbers

Kendrick Meek is the Florida Democratic party’s candidate for US Senate. I didn’t vote for him, but now it’s time to close ranks and take the fight to both Charlie “Opportunist” Crist and the GOP’s Marco Rubio. As much as I like to see confidence, though, perhaps Meek’s campaign manager, Abe Dyk, is bit fixated with electoral math.

CRIST CANNOT WIN

The math does not add up for Florida’s elected Republican Governor.

With universal name recognition, Charlie Crist abandoned his Republican primary fight against Marco Rubio. Only 39% of Democrats supported Crist at a time when Kendrick was completely unknown beyond his district, a number that will be a high-water mark for him running against a Real Democrat.


Floridian Dems Behaving Badly

The infamous Democratic circular firing squad is alive and well. MoJo asks, Can the race for the Democratic Senate nomination in Florida get any dirtier? According to Orlando Sentinel, neither candidate has comported himself well.

In the last three months, they’ve engaged in the equivalent of daily knife fights, trying to shred each other with a series of allegations that have ranged from silly to spot-on. Civility is the biggest casualty, as the candidates’ genuine disdain for one another has become apparent.


A Pox on Both Hacks

Losers Regardless of the OutcomePutative Democratic party nominees for the U.S. Senate from Florida, Kendrick Meek and Jeff Greene are piling up a record of a whole lot of nonsense, even though Greene seems to be more adept at dishing out dirt.
