My wife hates it when friends in the States say, "What an adventure you're having!" Her reply is, "This isn't an adventure. It's our life." And she has a point.

True, we've been able to do some very adventurous things here. But we also buy groceries and laundry detergent and look for parking spaces and throw out junk mail.

I wonder at what point people stop considering us to be adventurous. We have expat friends who've lived here for ten or more years. I wonder if their friends say, "What an adventure the past decade has been for you!"
