About

Tracy (aka Snowtracks) is a snowshoer, Instructional Designer, runner, mom, and dragon boat racer from the beautiful Pacific Northwest in the USA. She’s lived in Oregon for the last 15 years and lived in Israel for a job assignment from September 2011 to May 2012. Tracy blogs at Snowtracks in the Desert about the expat experience and the bits of Israel she brought back with her. Her husband, Stacey (aka Mojotooth), periodically posts on the blog as well.

We hope that what we share makes you laugh a little, learn a little, and if you are traveling or ย moving to Israel, prepares you for the experience. We’d like to tip our collective hat to the bloggers at A Bride in the Desert, How to Be Israeli, and From Gaijin to Goya for paving the way for us. Now we’re paying it forward.

    It’s so weird that I’ve had family in Asia and now the Middle East. On paper, the Ross clan must be very confusing. I hope you guys know that I am already planning my Israeli adventures. I am very serious about coming out to see you guys shortly after I get myself to Europa. Bring on the dirt and unleavened bread. Yeast is bad for me, anyway! I would offer my babysitting services, but I don’t know how useful I’d be in the case of an(other for Liam) emergency. Maybe I can take him to France for a few days and you guys can spend some time in Marseille. Anyways, I’m just rambling now, but I mean to tell you that I love and miss you all. I’m coming your way (semi-) shortly and I’m really looking forward to it.

    LOVE! Gill.
