A  European   eXperience,  and elsewhere.....

In August 2003 John was fortunate enough to be asked to work in Europe for a few years. After about 30 seconds of discussion, Blakey agreed to move to Dublin, Ireland, a place she had never visited.

So after all the normal, yet involved logistics, we sold our house in the US, packed up the furniture and set up house in Dublin in February 2004.   We live in the village of Malahide and purchased our house there in February 2006.

We've adopted Ireland as our new home and became Irish citizens in 2012.   John retired from work in September 2013 and we've amped up travel in Europe and other parts of the world.

We hope enjoy this virtual travel diary.
