Become An Escape Artist...

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you go? Why would you live there?

I have found a website that is dedicated to selling real estate in other countries. I've loved it since I found it years ago and I visit it from time to time.

Escape Artist.

I have always, ALWAYS wanted to live in another country. Ever since I can remember I've always thought the experience would be thrilling and exciting. I very much have an adventuresome spirit and even though we have settled into our place, I still have this lingering desire to go abroad and live. I have quite a few places that I'd like to go...Greece, Russia, Hawaii, Portugal, Chile, Argentina, and I could continue, but I won't. Not enough time.

*Disclaimer- We had a terrible camera when we were in Mexico. Please forgive the quality.

I've seen my fair share of the world, but not enough by far. I've been to Mexico, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Austria, France, and England. Mexico is absolutely amazing and my sissy had a destination wedding in Puerto Vallarta Mexico and it was so lovely. I went on a month long trip to Europe after I graduated high school hence the number of countries I've visited. I want to go back soooo badly, but now is not the time since I've got babes to love and care for. Some day though, when they are older, I hope to take them all over this world that the Lord has created. I want them to see that there is so much out there. So much.

So where would you go? Would you just want to just visit or stay and live for a while?

How about a farm in Portugal?

A Villa in Norway?

Maybe your own island in Panama?

Or perhaps a mansion in Mexico?

*This one's my favorite!

I am a dreamer and I'm letting you in on some of my dreams.

Come and dream with me.


  1. I would like to go to England, Irland and New Zeland. I have been to Canada and Mexico. I spend two weeks in a small villiage two hours south of Mexico City a few years ago.

  2. Ooh, good choices! I would love to go there too. Especially Ireland since my son's birthday is on St. Patricks day. So fun. And New Zealand, well, it's just so beautiful...who wouldn't want to go? :)

  3. I've been living in Albania for the past two years. Living overseas makes traveling to other countries much cheaper, since most of the cost of traveling outside of America is the "over the ocean" plane ticket. We've enjoyed living overseas so much, and have been able to visit many countries near us. I've been to Albania, Greece, Macedonia, Kosovo, Montenegro, Croatia, England, Italy, France, Canada, and Guatamala! I would love to visit even more places, but I think I will definitely want to settle down in the good ol' USofA! We've come to appreciate and look forward to many things that are not available to us here in Albania, but will be once we return to the States. AND, I have 3 kids; 10, 8, and 6, so if God leads you, it's definitely doable! :)

  4. How is life in Albania? That is so cool. :) Of course, I'd love to live elsewhere, but I'm sure there's pro's and cons to it. Are you in the military/missionaries? I'm sure you and your family have such great memories getting to live in so many neat places.

  5. Your "that is so cool" comment made me laugh, because I thought the same thing about your chicken coop (which is what brought me to your blog.) We're working as missionaries in a fairly small remote town up in the mountains. It has been really good, and we've learned so much. My kids miss their cousins and grandparents though, and we're probably coming back to the States this summer to start our own homestead! :) Your last post about the coyotes was sad. I've heard of llamas being great protectors of sheep because they eat what the sheep do, but are very protective and make a really loud "trumpeting" sound to alert you of any danger to the flock. Have you looked into that?

  6. Oh, that's funny! I'm sure your missing your family and your kids are probably ready to see some familiar faces. Where do you think your going to settle down in the states? So cool your gonna homestead. Let me know how it goes. We have thought about protection animals, but I'm not sure if they'd be great to have around with my little ones. Probably gonna look into it and see how it goes.


Have a seat, enjoy the conversation, and welcome to the farm.
