In the fall of 1999, we had the opportunity to move to Germany. It seemed a silly thing to pass up, and so we went, packing up our stateside apartments and moving in together in Europe. We put together this journal so those at home could follow along as Ian and Christina moved to Germany and figured out how to live in Europe.

Ian took the pictures, and Christina kept the words. And, nearly seven years after this adventure was over, this journal is now complete. The whole story is here.

Enjoy your travels with us!
