I’m about to start the second chapter of my life in Washington state, USA, moving from Israel where I lived all my life. Most of my work is in the US, some in Europe, some elsewhere. In the last few years I’ve been traveling about two thirds of my time. Moving to the US will allow me to spend more time at home (at least weekends), and be close to Microsoft, which is very important to me. Also, I love hiking, and the area we are moving to—the Pacific Northwest—is full of amazing sceneries and hiking opportunities.
Our family consists of me, Lilach (my wife), and our Canaan Dogs Jiru (white) and Seraph (black and white).
We’re moving with very little—just ourselves and four suitcases. First thing we do when we arrive to our home in WA is go to Ikea and get a bed.
The actual move involves a bit more than a cross-Atlantic flight; Lilach devised quite an interesting trip, and I thought others might find it interesting as well…
We didn’t want to put our dogs in two very long flights. Even one long flight would probably be traumatic for them. So we decided to fly from Israel to the east coast, rent a big car, and drive to the west coast over nine days. We’re planning to drive during the day and camp at night in KOA campgrounds along the way. It’s been hectic lately between my constant travels, clearing the house and getting arranged for the move. I’m looking forward to spending some quality time with the family, seeing a lot of the US on the road, and having campfires with potatoes and beer during the evenings in the campgrounds.
See you on the other side! :)
Itzik, Lilach, Jiru and Seraph
