Who Is She

Who Is She

Every day she shows me her warm smile. She is the one who gives me an intense feeling of proud. She waves and blow kisses to every person who she feels needs one. She amazes me every day more. She makes her own friends and family if its like nothing. She has this beautiful smile [...]

‘Starting from the bottom’

  New York is giving me a whole new prospective on life. I am surprised how many different cultures live in this city. We are so different, but at the same time so the same. We all come for one thing and that is ‘building up a better life and make our dreams come true’. [...]

‘Sleeping with a married woman’

In my years of travelling, I've met many different kinds of people. Nice, weird, and rude ones! Not even to start about attitudes from soccer wives! But there is one in particular that I never thought I would ever meet… ‘The Croatian’. After our second year in Texas a lot of new teammates with their [...]

‘The Real Deal’

Six years ago, we lived in Cyprus for one season in Ayia Napa. Best holiday place ever! To be there for soccer…? Not so much. We lived in a touristic area near the beach with white sand and clear blue water. It was just beautiful. Cyprus overall has so much history and nice food to [...]

‘My book of words’

For a couple of months I now have a Chinese friend. We go on fun adventures with our kids. She's lived in the US for many years, but most of the time she still doesn’t know what I am saying in English. And to be honest… I cannot always understand her either! She cannot pronounce [...]

‘The World Cup’

So... the World Cup in Brazil started last week and when your husband doesn't play, it's not a lot of fun to watch these games. But it's on all freaking day! So I can't go around it. It's not only the 90 minute of soccer, NO, they also talk so much before and after these [...]

‘No Turn on Red’

Finally my own bed and environment again. Safe home, well … not exactly safe… The day after I came home from the hospital, I walked to the grocery store and somebody almost ran me over! They drove through the red light, at a speed of at least 40 miles an hour! I cursed, yelled in [...]

We started at the urgent care pediatrics but ended up in the ER. There was [...]

‘American sweetheart’

‘American sweetheart’

So the journey began… The first days we were both so excited, everything was new and scary at the same time, especially because of a small setback. We all had an instant camaraderie because of that. We all lived in the same complex building, the teammates and families. But there were some “complications” with the [...]

‘Airplane friend’

‘Airplane friend’

My husband has been a professional soccer player for many years. Currently he plays for the legendary New York Cosmos. But for the past two years he played for the San Antonio Scorpions, based out of Texas. We've travelled to many places and have met great people all over the world. We've grown up by [...]
