Life changed almost a decade ago, when we packed our son and our dog and some of our stuff and moved all the way from Up Over (Switzerland) to Down Under. Not only have we settled in very well but we’ve now also become proud citizens of this beautiful country called Australia.

The wide open space and the variety this country has to offer has always fascinated both, me and my husband. Australia has so much to offer! I love the mountains you find here, as I grew up in the mountains. And as you know, you can take the girl from the mountain but you can never take the mountain from the girl… (or similar…). I also love the beach, the bush and wide open vast land. I love the different seasons, the sun, the rain, the heat and the cold. And I need them all in my life. Nature is important to me. I need to be in touch with it, in which ever way possible. I’ve found it. All of it. Down here in Australia.

I feel like that there is always something going on and the days just pass by so fast. My two gorgeous kids (one boy and one girl), my husband (I love him to bits), as well as our two small dogs (they are like Yin and Yang), the blind cat and our two lazy lizardsย  always add a little bit of excitement to my days.

Most of the things we do, we do just like everybody else. But then there are some things we just do slightly different. This and so much more will be, what I am going to write about on this blog. The things we all have in common and the things we do differently…

You will find out that this here is not your typical Mommy Blog. It’s not your typical Homeschooling Blog and it’s for sure not your typical Expat Blog. When a blogger a little while ago mentioned that this blog is more like a Lifestyle Blog I considered it for a little bit. And maybe that’s what it is. It’s my personal lifestyle blog. You will read about my life as a woman, as a wife, as a mom, as an expat and as homeschooling parents. You will read about what inspires me and what makes me sad or mad.

Oh, and if this is not enough: I share slightly more about myself here.

  8. Thanks for visiting and following Flying Goannas. I hope you enjoy our travels. I wish I could speak another language well enough to write even a short post. But no, I have to be content with being able to order food and find a bed for the night.

  10. My roommate from college lives “down under” also.. she is south of Sidney in Wollongong, I think? This is their second time to live there. They were there with the United States Air Force the first time back in 2000-2002. They lived in Camberra that time. Wants us to come visit.. but it will be a while before I can afford to do that! LOL!

  13. Thanks for the Follow! I love what I’ve read so far on your blog. My husband is from the Catskill Mtns of NY while I am from the Iowa, the Mississippi River Iowa, not the center of Iowa. I very much understand your comment about how you can take the girl out of the mountains but can’t take the mountains out of the girl because that is my husband, very much. Luckily we live in a more rolling hills and bluffs area so when I moved him from the mountains to Iowa he had a LITTLE bit of the mountain scenery, just on a much smaller scale of course. lol Can’t wait to read more!

  14. So, you might be one of two kind of peopleโ€“the kind who think these awards are stupid, or the kind who has received so many, they donโ€™t even have time to think about them anymore. But if youโ€™re the third kind (the kind whose flattered by praise from strangers), I hope youโ€™ll be happy to know that I nominated you for a One Lovely Blog Award.

    The link is here (https://dearlilyjune.wordpress.com/2016/10/26/raging-lovelies-on-the-occasion-that-you-need-early-lily-trivia/), but so you donโ€™t think this is just shameful self-promotion for my own blog, Iโ€™ve also included what I wrote about you below (so you donโ€™t feel forced to visit my page if you donโ€™t want to!)

    Of your blog, I wrote:
    โ€œA Mommaโ€™s Viewโ€“You ever read one of those blogs and think, I should be spending WAY more time here? This is that blog for me. I just havenโ€™t gotten there yet.”

    Stay lovely & whatnot, Alyssa


    • This is such a lovely comment and I’m so so happy to accept your nomination! Thank you so much! Your comment ended up in my spam folder (for whatever reason…) but I found it and I will get to writing a post about the nomination soon. And hey: It’s all about promoting our blogs too and that’s totally fine ๐Ÿ˜‰

  16. Hey Momma, just wanted to let you know I have my black holes post sitting in your drafts folder, just about ready. I’ll polish it up tonight or tomorrow and let you know when it’s done ๐Ÿ™‚ Sorry for the wait, but I have an idea for my next post alreadyโ€”how’d you like to hear about the solar eclipse passing through the US tomorrow the 21st? It’s gonna be my next blog post as well, so I could easily adapt it. And it’s sort of time-sensitive, so it theoretically won’t take me as long ๐Ÿ˜‰
