And we're moving!!!!

One of the great things about military life is moving. You get to go new places, see new things and meet new people. It's also one of the bad things about military life. You have to leave your home, all the familiar things and your friends.
We've been here in Heidelberg for almost 3 years now and our time was coming to an end (most tours are 3 years). We were hoping to stay in Germany and last night we got the word that we will!!! We will not be staying in Heidelberg as it is shutting down (sadness), but will be moving up to Wiesbaden (just over an hour north of HD). Wiesbaden is pronounced Vees-bah-den BTW.   James Bond is very excited because he wanted to got to V Corps and now he will. I don't know what's so exciting about V Corps (we can't talk about his job), but whatever. I get to stay in Germany, so yay V Corps.
Indy is excited because he's got "more traveling to do." My boy is almost nomadic in his love of travel. He says we need to go to Greece (he thinks we should cruise around the islands), Egypt (of course), England, Scotland, back to Rome and Naples and maybe (meaning definitely) do another Disney cruise.
We've been it Wiesbaden a handful of times and found it to be a lovely city. Mainz, which is only a few minutes away is also beautiful.. I don't have any photos of my own on this computer, but here are a few I found on the interwebs.

Doesn't this look awesome?!?!  I can't wait to see what the next 3 years bring.  Stick around for the next chapter in our great adventure.

I am completely JEALOUS!! We have been trying for 6 years to get back home, to no avail. Mark's unit has no foot print in Europe anymore. BOOHOO!! Tina

Sounds like a fabulous adventure. I am thrilled you get to stay in Germany. I was there about 20 yrs. ago and loved everything that I saw. Can't wait to hear all about the move. Hugs, Marty

My sister's husband was stationed there 10 years ago when they had her daughter. They loved it and would love to go back. (Unfortunately, the Army thinks they need to be in Kansas.)

I bought a bottle of sparkling wine from Wiesbaden today, which I will drink in your honor.

Wiesbaden is a great area and has some fabulous festivals. Plus the base there is just huge now that they've closed down most of the others in the area.

Congrats on getting to stay in Germany! I'm an expat over here (no perks like the commissary, *sigh*) near Frankfurt and we used to live just down the road apiece from Wiesbaden :)
