  • Don't Let Anyone Stop You From Starting A Blog 16 hours ago I’m an enthusiastic advocate of blogging. Whenever someone tells me they’re thinking about starting a blog I’ll be the first one to jump in and tell them to do it. I’ve seen others raise an eyebrow at the idea, phrases like over-sharing and “I’m far to private” make an appearance. And...
  • What Did You Have to Lose? 1 day ago Remember that mini documentary I was talking about a few months ago? I had a little go at making it. It’s not perfect, there’s a few sound glitches and my editing isn’t perfect but geez it was good learning how to make it. And of course now that I’ve managed to play around with this one,...
  • Arrested Development 2 days ago As the little travellers jumped from the back doors the usual morning instructions/requests were asked and employed. Making eye contact with each one I asked direct questions for direct answers, I was Frost to their Nixon. “You’ve got basketball – Gate 5, 4 o’clock” he nodded and jumped...
  • An Exhibition 6 days ago My friend Pip held an art exhibition last night.

If you're an expat there is no other blog I can think of that captures every topic, emotion and experience like Kirsty does. It might be because I am a fellow Aussie living in a parallel universe but I think Kirsty's writing appeals to everyone regardless of where they are living and what their life experiences are. My absolute favourite blog to read without question.

Kirsty is a talented writer who blogs. Her blog posts are often so evocative they make me laugh and cry, in turn. One of my must-read blogs!
