Weekly Photo Challenge: Summer- An Expat’s Life

Kayaking in the mountains of New York

Living overseas for a large portion of my life as a Third Culture Kid and now as an expat, summertime has always meant “going home” to see family and friends in the USA. The best time of the year! Summer means hiking and kayaking with my sister in NY, hanging out at my grandparent’s farm in Bucks County, PA and of course lazing at the Jersey Shore in Ocean City.

I will be fortunate enough to spend another perfect summer with family in the tri-state area starting in a few weeks. (After traveling for about 40 hours.) I cannot wait to make some new memories. What do summers mean to you?

    I love expat “home-visit” summers. Feels almost like being a kid on school break. I’m counting the weeks until my own long summer trip home.

      I am a teacher so I always get my summer school break. 🙂 Being back with family just makes it so special!

    Haven’t had a “summer vacation” in a while…love the photos of OC, NJ, brought back memories from my own childhood family vacations. Time for a road trip;o) Have a great summer!

    I have a quilting email/penfriend who lives in Bucks County. I’m hoping to visit her one day soon.
