I was born and raised in Seattle and lived there for 40 years. My father and grandmother were born in Yakima, the heart of apple country. My blog name, Applecore, refers to my deep roots – six generations living, growing and working in Washington. I am now retired and live in Croatia, at least for now.
My wife and I have dubbed ourselves The Six Monthers because we plan to move to a new country to live every six months. We believe six months is a good amount of time to fully appreciate a country. I write about the uniqueness of each of our new homes abroad, and I share our stories as we go. We have lived in Panama, Mexico and Scotland. We are planning for our next move to Spain in January, 2014.
I appreciate comments and ideas of places to see by those who have visited some of our destinations before us. For those who wish to travel along vicariously, welcome to our journey.
I will not bore readers with any more Thank-you stories for awards or lists of a dozen things about me you did not know and probably do not care about. Nevertheless, I am grateful to fellow bloggers who have named me as worthy of recognition with the following awards.
