Ivanna the Terriblog

15 May

If you are reading this, you most likely already know that Ben and I will be relocating to Moscow, Russia at the end of summer. Ben was offered an amazing opportunity at a university there and we are both thrilled about diving into this adventure.

Excited as we are, this is a very big change for us. I have only lived in two states (both known for sunshine and warmth) and have never traveled outside of North America. I can count the number of Russian words that I know on one hand and I’m pretty sure I pronounce all of them incorrectly. We own a lot of stuff and are used to a large two bedroom apartment for just us and our cat. I’ll need to overcome these challenges in just a few months.

I decided to start this blog to document the experience. I want to share as much about the process of the move as possible – both with regards to saying goodbye to life in the U.S. and also preparing for a new one in Russia. And once we step off the plane in Moscow I’ll begin documenting my new experiences in an historic and (very) foreign city.

I hope that you’ll enjoy reading about our adventures!

And in case you’re wondering, our cat (hereby know as кошка) will be making the big move with us!

до свидания!
