May I ask why you moved so many times?
Sure - the full story is here: http://www.jenthousandwords.com/p/our-nomadic-life.html
I found and lost your blog in 2009. I looked several times, but couldn't find it. I wanted to thank you for a post you did on how to take pictures of people. I can't remember all the details, but it was things like have them tilt their head, crop the picture between the top of the head and the forehead, have them look up a bit, have more space on one side of the picture than on the other to add interest etc. I tried it with my husband and just like that took the best photo of him that has ever been taken (and we have been married for 30 years). When I was last reading your blog you were getting ready to move to New Zealand and your husband had gone down to try and get a job. Then I lost all my blog favourites. So interesting to see that you are now living in New Zealand. I love all your practical advice so I'll be having a bit of a read back through the archives.
