10171750_622290024521303_837524173626262283_n[1] - CopyA.  Stephenson lives with her husband, two kids, and two dogs in Alabama. But she’s about to put her worldly goods on a slow boat to Germany. Follow her if you want to hear about all of the firsts, foibles, frustrations, and follies of an expat’s life abroad. There will be travels and travesties both, that’s a promise.

A little background: Ann teaches English part time at Auburn University, Montgomery. Her past experiences and adventures include teaching jobs at UMUC, Methodist University, and Valdosta State University, and years of expat life on the Turkish Mediterranean (3 years) and in Northern England (4 years).  Her foibles and follies. . .are too lengthy to list here.


UPDATE:  We’re now on the ground in Germany!!

  1. Dear Ann, enjoyed the reading your latest post, looking the old photos of Istanbul and Cappadocia.. It seems that you had very good days in Turkey.
    Didn’t you visit the Southern of Turkey? I’d see some old photos taken the there as well. I think, you know about gulet yachs and cruises in the area. You get more information at the following link that gives more idea about Turkish gulets and blue cruises.



    1. Hello Cey, Thanks for dropping by and reading. Yes, we loved our travels in Turkey–we loved the sights and the people equally. We did once take a yacht cruise on the Aegean Sea, and would love to take our children back some day and cruise the southern and Med area. I’ll be sure to read more on your blogsite. Thanks.

  2. Hello Ann! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog! I can´t wait to read through your posts 🙂 Oh and I love your header image – that´s my favourite shot of Prague 🙂

    Have a lovely night, Lenka x

      1. Where have you been here? We’ve lived in the Northwest corner for about six years now. What I really love it that you have a weekend a way and the history and possibilities are just endless. Loving it!

  3. Hi Anne! I noticed your ‘like’ on my post Peace on Earth. So I looked into your intersting blog. What intrigues me is how people from the States view my former home country Germany. You sure have a fine way with words and I will back for more insights. Merry Christmas to you and your family!

    1. Hi–thanks for reading. I’m sure we Americans miss so many of the nuances of Germany and its traditions–but I do love having the chance to live here briefly. It’s been a great experience. Merry Christmas to you and yours also!

  4. I’m so glad you saw one of my blogs, as it made me curious to look at yours. As my husband’s lived in Germany, we’d both like to know Turkey better, and as it’s always intersting to see what England looks like from an ‘outsider’s’ point of view, I’m looking forward to exploring your blog.
