Oooops... Five Years Already! Part I

With the all the excitement and post race reporting, I completely forgot to mention that I had my 5-year USA anniversary last week.

I can't believe that I live here for FIVE years already! Where did the time go???

When I left Germany in July 2005 for my 2-year assignment here in SC, people already told me that they don't think I will ever come back. I thought they were NUTS, but obviously, they knew more than I did at the time. The 2-year assignment became a 3-year and then a 5-year assignment and with getting married last April, it's save to say that it's going to be a while.

To all of my newer friends and readers.... Yes, it's really me on those pictures before I decided to get active and loose weight! ;-)

Since 5 years is a LOOOOONG, I will designate one post per year.

Let's get this show on the road with 2005.

On my first weekend in the US, I drove up to Asheville NC for the Belle Chere Festival.

In October of that year, I made the first trip of many to Charleston SC.

And then of course my first Halloween in the mother country of Halloween.

My first ever Thanksgiving I spent with a friend from Germany that happened to do an internship in Indiana at that time. So I flew up there for a weekend and while there, we also made a quick trip to Chicago IL.

And of course, this can just be a glimpse of that year.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

  1. Great blog! Funny that I heard about it from a guy that lives in CA and I am from Charleston, SC... I ran the Palmetto 200 too and had a blast. I look forward to reading more of your blog.
