  • A Very Small Lady Went To The Doctor... 1 week ago It must have been over 25 years ago when my girlfriend Krissy told me the joke. It was about a small woman, shorter than most, who had to visit a doctor. Her ailment? Every time she walked she had an orgasm. I can still picture Krissy’s face, she kept giggling, having to start again. I […]
  • Why Don't We Live Here All The Time? 1 week ago After a week in Queensland being mesmerised by coastal scenes, sunshine, and beachside restaurants, it can be hard to justify a wintery South Australian existence. “Why don’t we live here all the time?” The third little traveller was gazing out to sea. Two months in South Australia, rugging...
  • The Storytellers 2 weeks ago It’s the story tellers. Those who land in the ilk of Nikki Gemmell, Eden Riley, David Sedaris and Jon Ronsen; the writers who sit you down with a beginning, purr at your shoulder in the middle, and have you quietly lost in thought long after the end. The entire piece too clever to quote over […]
  • The Best Of Both Worlds 2 weeks ago I’m about to have a chat on the radio. I think it’s about blogging, perhaps it’s more about expat life, I’m not really sure – fingers crossed it’s not about fishing as today’s fishless river trip has proved I’m pretty low on expertise. At some point I will be asked where my...
  • Just Calling On The Off-Chance... 3 weeks ago It’s the fusion of South meets East. The yearly pilgrimage, our annual trip to Queensland to see G’s family.

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!

An irreverent look at expat life, funny and poignant in turn.
