It is not easy learning to live in a different country. I am sharing my experiences and hope someone will find it useful whether living here in Greece or any other country.

Best Time

I have not been to many places since I have lived here. Sometimes I sit and think about the past, (which I know you are not suppose to do). I break the rules sometimes. Life is not always forward, but some things of past good times once in awhile. Christmas in Rhodes, Greece is a favorite of mine. It was not freezing cold, just enough for cold rains and some hail. We had a good nights sleep and woke up one morning before Christmas and had some snow on the ground. I told my wife,"did we die and wake up in Alaska"? It was very unusual and I have been to many islands, and have never seen snow on a island. Going out at night, I teased my grand daughter with a snowball fight. Summers are nice but sometimes too hot. It was nice to have a cold visit with relation. Life is short, maybe we can go back sometime. ~~~CcP~~~8-16-2017


People Abroad said...

Hi! I am Nerissa, a Filipino living in Italy.
We just started a website dedicated to the lives of all those living in a country other than the one where they were born. Thru we intend to increase connections, awareness, and understanding among people.
We would like to ask you to contribute as an author to the website by writing even one single post with photos and/or videos about the region of the world you live in. Your post can be externally linked to your personal websites, blogs, Facebook pages, Twitter account, and/or anything else you like, in order to promote your own activity.
If possible, we would also like you to write your story (bio - where you live and how you decided to live your life abroad) – example:
To become an author, it is not necessary to live in a different country from where you were born, but simply to know a bit of the world by having lived, studied, or traveled abroad.
Please, sign up to our website at and send all your files with things you would like to share (your story or your posts) by email to people(at)peopleabroad(dot)org. In case of big files, send them by WETRANSFER.
Since this website is still under construction, we do not have yet made it available to search engines for indexation. So, to access it, just type
We are just starting and that is why your help is essential. We would love to see you onboard!
All the best,
