My Life Story In Segments (4)

When We left Sicily, My father chose orders to Spain. google maps/ earth This is where my mother is from, and I had a blast with extended family and senior classmates (attended 12th grade in Spain).  I graduated from high school, worked and continued school.  I decided to  test the waters of independence, and moved to the US, Jacksonville, Florida where I was roommates with my friend Danny.  My dad had a friend from Spain who lived in Jacksonville as well, Nick (his family, Peggy,Robin and Jeff ) they became my extended family.  They were an enormous support group, and my 2nd friends.  I met a handful of incredible people in Jacksonville and through my travels. I ended up living in the Riverside area of Jacksonville for a good amount of years. My last residence was here.  I ate at Biscottis their (website)a lot, it was right around the corner from me.

 

My Life Story In Segments (3)

My Dad had chosen orders to Sigonella Sicily again. I attended grades (9-11) at Stephen Decatur High School.  This time when we arrived we stayed at the Hotel Bonaccorsi we stayed there for a little while while we attended school. After about 6 months we moved to a town called Motta.  After about a year and a half, we eventually moved to Naval Housing which was across the street from the Naval base I.  It was beautiful country and a beautiful experience for a teenager.  This was my family’s 2nd  tour in Sicily.

To My High School Friends From Spain And Italy, Hello

I think growing up in a military household there were many attributes to it. Travel abroad, opening your mind to the exposure of other cultures, customs, just that the world is a big place( and yet so small).  Europe is so much older than the U.S.,  it is simply amazing to see history still standing.

I hope life has been good and treated you well through the years.  I lost contact with some of you along the way, but there are memories that I will have for always!  High school is a part of our life experience,  our years when we were young and free! I am hoping to check in and see how some of you are doing!  I am sure a lot of you are on facebook. It is a great way to link everyone together.
