  • The Expat Niche 1 day ago I was searching through my bag for a pen while chatting to a new friend when I found my house keys. The Adelaide house keys. An impulse buy at the hardware store, I’d collected one of those miniature torches as a keyring while standing at the counter which I then felt compelled to justify every...
  • Once a Jolly Blogger 2 days ago   You know how people return from a conference with hours of inside jokes and hilarious not hilarious anecdotes. That’s me right now. My head is full of internal giggles which are being transmitted into awkward smiles as I sit here in the Brisbane International Airport. I fly back to Qatar...
  • 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? 2 weeks 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.

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.
