This is my tale of a bizarro life, growing up in a diplomatic world, moving from one country to another, then growing up and working in Foreign affairs.
This blog follows stories of my past, and present, as a life of a nomad by career choice, and a woman, mother and wife, who quit the diplomatic life to start a company with, yes, my husband. We travel, juggle a business and life as parents. This blog has everything from adventures to misadventures, and my favorite subject – Culture shock, from the bad to the funny.
There are a cast of characters that will come out over time. From Vancouver, to Quebec, to moving with a toddler cross-country 2x , to camping, snowshoeing and travelling with a baby to various countries.
I don’t give names – sorry, I refer to everyone by nicknames.
My Father – the diplomat, he passed away when I was 19 and left an incredible mark on this world. The most positive human being I have ever met in my life.
The little man (my son) – he is a pint-sized dictator, absolutely brilliant, incredible, and the most hilarious little human being you can meet.
My Main squeeze – the husband in my life: hilarious, charming and the love of my life. He also drives me around the bend and back, but charmed and entertained I am all the time. Also the best travel companion and adventure enthusiast.
I look at everything with a sense of humour, as a challenge, and most of all as a positive life lesson. So, between crazy things I have learned in the most uptight career, to funny and serious things that have happened to us as a family along the way, have a chat, or just enjoy.
I have never considered myself an expert at very much, but travel and moving have been such a huge part of my life, that I can say, without a doubt that I actually am.
