We know some of you are enjoying living vicariously through our current experiences.  So in order to prevent any outcry over us not sharing the bid list, the 76 posts are listed below.  Note that some have multiple openings and some are reserved for Foreign Service employed couples, i.e. tandems.

While we have to bid High, Medium or Low on every single one of these posts, there are other limits and qualifications that go along with them, particularly the start date (i.e. July or November) and the language proficiency needed (i.e. professional proficiency in Russian or Urdu).

We have already narrowed the list considerably since we don’t want to go to post until after the baby is born, which is July 20th.  That requirement knocks out approximately 60% of the posts.

We’ll keep you updated as we narrow our posts and rank them.  Until then, break out your globe and enjoy!
