Get to know Julia

This collection of musings dates back to their move in 2008 to Cairo and covers the wide-eyed observations of a newly-married Ohio girl. Dive into a life of traveling, adventure-seeking, and child-rearing. Explore as she figures out the taxis in Cairo, finds the courage to order a falafel in broken Arabic, and explores motherhood as an expat in Kuwait, Jordan and Bahrain. 

Explore with Julia

Explore the back streets of Cairo, see the sea turtles in Oman, or check out the malls in Kuwait and Bahrain. All without leaving your couch.
