“…make the narrative a combined Diary and Autobiography. In this way you have the vivid things of the present to make a contrast with the memories of like things in the past, and these contrasts have a charm which is all their own. No talent is required to make a combined Diary and Autobiography interesting.”
(Autobiography of Mark Twain, Volume 1, p.220)
This is my version of a combined Diary and Autobiography. I hope to capture and share the adventures – some mundane, some exciting (I hope!) – of our family as we spend three years living in Germany. We are in a small village close to the Netherlands and Belgium.
