- June 1, 2016 - Old Stomping Grounds 3 weeks ago It was just two weekends ago - although feels like ages already! - that I set off on my own for three days and three nights of "me" time with some of my friends from Nairobi days. Two friends still live in Nairobi and the other managed to be in town from London for work. After some stressful...
- May 16, 2016 - Throwback to Easter 2 months ago Way back in March/April, we visited our friends in their family holiday home on the Krom River on the Eastern Cape of South Africa. It was a wonderfully relaxing vacation that I have already blogged about! But our friend Chris just shared these beautiful pictures of our final night together,...
- May 11, 2016 - So Much to Say 2 months ago There has been a LOT going on for our family these days. Kristoffer and I are both having a very busy week of work, coinciding with our final weeks here in Dar. Right before I started "exam season" at IST (my 4th year conducting exams here), we had one crazy week where we both packed out of our...
- May 10, 2016 - Travelling with Toddlers in Tanzania 2 months ago A few months ago I was invited to write a guest blog post over at Roasted Montreal and today is the day that my specific post is up!This was flattering because, as you know, I've been pretty awful at blogging consistently since Aya was born and the fact that another blogger likes my blog and my...
- April 29, 2016 - Two Part Two 3 months ago A couple of days after Aya's birthday and just before our big pack out (more on that later), we had a very small party for Aya. We just invited 3 families over for some cake and a play date. It was simple and sweet and hopefully she enjoyed it. The birthday girl fell asleep at the table eating...

One of my favorite blogs to read - Excellent balance of expat perspectives and cultural insight - all while having a "real life" approach.

If it were not for Lisa Welsein's blog her many fiends and relatives would spend several years worrying instead, we know she and the family are fine and as a bonus we have all learned a great deal about South Africa that may not be learned from a text book no matter how many you read. This blog is simply amazing, educational, funny, heartwarming and informative and while it is personal - it should, be picked up by some publisher so readers, in addition to friends and relatives, might have the benefit and privilege of this extraordinay narrative! I guess you might say I like it - NO I LOVE IT!!!
