No, I really did not make a quick trip to Slovakia or to the Czech Republic yesterday but I was able to learn a few things about each of the countries as it was time for my monthly coffee morning with the spouses from my husband job. This month is was host by both Slovakia and the Czech Republic.
Fun fact…did you know eye contacts were invented by a guy from the Czech Republic? I just guessed and I won a prize.
We had a Polish come and sell us some BEAUTIFUL linens. I will have more about this on another blog post!
One of the great things about these coffee mornings is the food! And when these 2 countries get together there is always a TON of food.
And you want to know why I love living overseas? Because of things like this and learning more about people from all of the world. I never in my wildest dreams would I imagine that we would have friends in Slovakia that are dear enough to us that we get invited to their parents house for Easter lunch or friends in Slovakia or in Estonia, dear enough were I can say, “Hey, “J or L” we are coming over next weekend to visit you, so I hope have the guest room ready for us!”
It is absolutely AMAZING where life can take you at times!
Are you an expat living in a different country? If so, what is one of the perks for living far from home?
(And being from away from your in-laws doesn’t count!)
