I'm glad Diana has been recognized for her writing. I've been telling her for years she should be writing a book because she is clever, thoughtful, and fun to read.

Tale of a Trailing Spouse is a wonderful traveling eye on the world! This blogger has a way with words and in just a few paragraphs we the readers are transported across the world. Its usually the small observations which tell the biggest stories and The Trailing Spouse does that so well. Reading this blog is like trailing The Trailing Spouse and makes one feel connected across the globe. Keep up the great blogging for those of us stuck a little closer to home.

I've been reading Tale of a Trailing Spouse for quite awhile. I've even had the pleasure of meeting its wonderful writer several years ago. It's always interesting to read about the lives of others abroad, especially now that I am once again back in the US. Diane has a great way of getting a point across in a fun, and funny way. I've enjoyed reading her blog and look forward to hearing more about her adventures in Singapore. I've always wanted to visit there.

Diana's blog is informative, light-hearted, and well-written. I have known her since 1984 and reading her blog is like sitting down with her to talk and laugh and ponder. As a new expat myself, I find the stories she tells parallel to my own experiences. Thanks, Diana for your insight and your sense of humor.

As a new(er) friend and fellow expat living in Singapore, I didn't even realize that Diana had this blog! After reading some of her posts, I realize that how she writes on her blog, is just how she visits with me in person! I love it! Plenty of detail, friendly, informative, and of course, I could ask questions and insert my 2 cents if it were in person, but it's a blog. Love it, and love keeping company with Diana!

Living abroad and haven't found a new BFF yet? Well, you just have. Diana's blog will make you feel that you have found someone going through the exact same things as you. And the best part is that her positive outlook on things will remind you that the best thing to do is smile when you are feeling blue.

For some time now I read every post of "Tale of a Trailing Spouse". Diana writes about her experiences across the globe in a light-hearted and positive way. Her blog posts reflect the real situations expats finds themselves in when away from home. I would highly recommend this blog to any expatriate family.

Diana has shared her engaging writing style with the world through several blogs. "Tale of a Trailing Spouse" has introduced me to places I've never had the chance to visit and what it's like to be an expat. Though her experiences are not ones that I have had, her true talent is showing how what we all think, feel, and go through in life is more similar than we often realize. I look forward to Diana's every post -- great reading!!

Diana´s "easy to read" style engages you with each post. Her writting reflects her personality: Honest, caring and fun. I think she should write a column each week.

Diana is a great writer--I've been reading her blogs before she became and ex-pat. It's been great to share the journey with her and get some insight to her life abroad. She's a great storyteller.

I met Diana's spouse almost 10 years ago. We considered becoming ex-pats ourselves in 2005...but never did. It's fun to stay connected and live the life--vicariously--through Diana's blog. It's a wonderful read!

I recently found Diana's new blog and I am so glad I did. I missed her blogging since she left Germany a few years ago. Once you start reading one of her entries you notice her unique blogging style and you will come back daily to her blog to see if she has a new post. They are educational, thought-provoking and fun. Most times I think, I wish I could just hangout with her and have this conversation in person, but since it is not possible, I' m glad I get to "visit" with Diana through her blog. Thank you for bringing far away Singapore a little closer!
