Welcome to my blog! In early 2009, my husband was given the opportunity to work at his law firm’s Sydney office, so we left New York City and headed Down Under. Exactly two years later, we decided to prolong our time abroad and made the move to Singapore. It’s been four years since then so I guess you can say we’ve enjoyed this expat thing!
When the Australia issue first cropped up, I started stalking a few blogs of other American expats in Australia. I found it enormously interesting and useful hearing what sorts of things I could expect to deal with on the road ahead. Before deciding to move to Singapore, I again found expat blogs to be the absolute best resource in figuring out what to expect from life there. Plus it’s fun having a place to both vent and share the funny things you sometimes least expect from living abroad.
To that end, this blog is a definite melange (or perhaps more appropriately, rojak salad) of random expat observations mixed with travel and food posts. My other passions include sports, fitness, politics and pop culture so there’s a healthy amount of that stuff thrown in as well. Opinions are mine and mine alone, and I apologize in advance if my dry sarcasm doesn’t translate off your computer screen.
Thanks for sharing in our adventures.
