…A New Beginning…
The blog previously known as ‘Wir sind Ausländern!! – regarding the misadventures of a Singaporean family in Switzerland’ is relaunched as…
Here’s a little about the transitition.
1st of all, living away from our home country has really brought differences & the meaning of being different to the forefront of our thoughts.
2nd, tripping as defined by dictionary.com:
1. light and quick, as a step or pace,
2. proceeding with a light, easy movement or rhythm.
There are days when it seems that life is like this – smooth & carefree.
Tripping comes from the noun ‘trip’ which is defined as:
1. a journey or voyage
Which is something we are all on – everyday trips, life’s journey.
but it is also defined as:
5. a stumble; misstep.
Far too often, the feeling of constantly falling over one’s feet overtakes us as we try to make sense of the things/situations/people we face daily.
As with all travels, there are ups & downs, there are laughs & tears… we hope to share some of these from our daily life in a different country, different culture; share about our loves & joys, sorrows & dislikes; share about being different & appreciating (or lamenting) those differences.
So come tripping along
Here’s wishing all of you a very Blessed New Year & have a Fulfilling 2012. May it be a wonderful year filled with big and small surprises & good times with family & friends & good health.
