An American in Norway, a Citizen of the World

... sharing my life as an expat and a traveler through words and photos

Web Site:

Hi, I’m Cindi: Mom, wife, daughter, sister, aunt … student, teacher … freelance musician, web designer, and virtual assistant … volunteer … pet devotee … traveler, expat … hooked on historical fiction and advice columns … never too far away from my Spotify and iPod playlists …

My living abroad in Berlin behind the Wall in 1982-1984 and now in Norway since 2007, plus my travel experiences and opportunities, are an important part of my overall understanding of me as a human immersed in another country, another culture, another life.

By reading my blog, I hope both my words and photographs take my family and friends outside of their world and their surroundings for a few moments too.

Through my blog I'm meeting other expats and travelers, and my understanding of our world and my place in it continues to grow.

It's a wonderful world we live in, isn't it?!
