Well We have done it again – Yes, that is right we have relocated AGAIN! This is move number 7 for us!
Our Current location is Las Vegas, Nevada. My husband has retired from professional Basketball and we decided to bring the kids back to the USA, after more than 10 Years in Europe. We are currently re-acclimating to life in the USA.
Last year we were in in Gottingen, Germany a small University town, in the true center of Germany. We are approximately 3 hours North of Frankfurt and 3 hours South West of Berlin, just about 40 minutes south of Hannover. A little cool information .. is that the actual Grimm Brothers taught here in Göttingen at the University here. Watch for some cool insight to our little town.
The Year before that, we were in Avellino, Italy. Avellino, is a cute little area about 50 minutes south-west of Naples. It is about 1000 Feet about sea level and sits smack in the middle of small Mountain range. Can you say Beautiful? It really is, and it reminds me a little bit of my home in the foothills of the Colorado Rocky Mountains.
Prior to living in Italy we were in Bonn, Germany, Prosetejov Czech Republic, and Kedainiai Lithuania. Whew!
If you are just finding my Blog, we have lived in 6 Countries, and traveled to over 50. This is all due to my husband’s professional basketball Career. The European Season runs from September – May, much like the NBA system. We afford our travels, and amazing life, due to his 10yr+ successful basketball career.
We have lived/played in Lithuania, the Czech Republic, Germany, Italy, and now back to Germany. While Benas is playing the boys go to the School, and stay involved in many activities. We travel and explore in and around our location and surrounding countries on weekends, and school holidays. We try very hard to find local experiences and make the trips memorable .. and to hopefully learn something along the way.
The boys also used to both play basketball like their dad! I normally see 3-5 basketball games weekly, between their schedules. They were both on traveling teams, so that also gives us more time travel and explore. I am a stay at home mom, travel planner, Blogger, and a taxi driver for all my guys!
Now our oldest Tony Veikalas is studying in Las Vegas, his passion acting and teaching. Our Youngest Son Vincas Veikalas is still playing and wants to be a pro-player like his dad.
Once Benas’ Basketball season is over, and the kids are finished with school; we hit the road and travel.
For those of you asking about our new little surprise package … Amber Saule was born on April 8, 2015 in Bonn, Germany and is doing wonderful…growing, and watching a lot of basketball.
