Intro and Survival! — The Bump
International Bumpies

Intro and Survival!

We made it!

To Aberdeen, that is.  :)  DH and I have lived in South Africa and briefly moved to Luanda, Angola, before I was told I wouldn't be allowed to stay due to my pregnancy.  (Malaria, yellow fever, etc. too risky).  So I had to go stay with my mom in the States for the rest of the pregnancy.  Found out we were having twins! And DH started looking for a new place to work.  He went to Aberdeen in September, came to the States for the twins' birth September 25 then went back to work, and now we're all back together!

We made it through the babies first (transatlantic) flight! It wasn't too bad.  Looking forward to settling in, although not excited about unpacking every earthly possession...

Happy to have an international bumpie group!

  • You've had a busy year!  Somehow I got confused though, are you American?

    Welcome to the board!  I'm an American living in Germany with my Spanish H--we just moved here from Spain about 7 months ago.

  • Hello to you all!

    Oh, yes, I guess I forgot to mention.  I'm American/Mexican and DH is Venezuelan.   We hope to stay in Aberdeen for about 3 years and then, who knows! Some places we'd like to live are Brazil, Malaysia or Indonesia and Azerbaijan, but for now I'm just glad to be all together in one place.  

    I hope to write a blog post soon about traveling with the babies.  It was more tedious than difficult, and I'm hoping the next time will be even easier (read: less luggage!)

      

  • Traveling with infants internationally is a piece of cake (we have done it often). Traveling with toddlers sucks. Then it gets better again when they are around 3.

    These first two sentences I can attest to. I only hope the third one is true, too.
