Hey there! West Coast Abroad is my blog about my life overseas with my growing family (dogs and kids = circus). We're Americans, proudly from the West Coast, who met on the East Coast, and moved to Sweden for our first adventure abroad. Now we live in Abu Dhabi, with our two rescued hound dogs from Virginia (yep, they've been with us the whole way) and our two young sons, trying to take advantage of all the opportunities that come our way. We love soaking up the history, culture, art, and environments of the places that we go, but more than that we love the people we meet and befriend along the way. My blog captures all of it along the way.
