Friends of ours relocated to the US last summer. With two small children and a great deal of apprehension they packed up their things, sold everything and moved to New Orleans. I admire and envy them.
We are meeting them today, since they are on vacation in Vienna, I cannot wait to hear how they are doing. If things were just a bit differently, I would do the same. It is the biggest regret of my life, that I never took the chance to live in America for some time, when it would have been more easily possible.
I am holding out for old age now. There is always an Early Bird Special waiting for me in Florida…
