Kala Christouyenna! Merry Christmas from Greece!

Terri & James - Oia

It’s Christmas Eve, and we’re starting to celebrate here in Athens. And if you’re reading this you’re family, old friends, or new friends who are taking time out to see what we’re up to. And for that we thank you. Christmas is a sentimental time for everyone, and you may wonder how and why we would choose to be in a strange place, without our family and friends for the holidays. Well, the short answer is that we are nomads.

In 1975 we left Lexington, Kentucky with two newly minted university diplomas, and moved to New Orleans, Louisiana. This change of address planted the seed of wanderlust that has grown, flourished, and is still alive and well today. We love change and experiencing new places.  As it turns out, this curiosity defines our life together. We’ve been so happy in our life of perpetual motion due to our deep love, mutual respect, and kick-ass partnership. Pair that with the unquestioning support of our families and friends, and you’ve got two happy nomads.

We haven’t been out of the country for Christmas since our London days in the late 80s. For our Christmas in Athens, there will be some sad moments, and some funny stories about our past. We will talk about people we knew and wonder where they are, and most of all we will hope that everyone who is special to us is safe and happy for the holidays. We love you all and thank you for understanding our crazy lifestyle.

Merry Christmas,
James and Terri
