If you have found my page, it is likely because you are a wonderful friend or family member and you have come here because I told you to! Ever since I moved to the UK in April of 2017, I promised myself I would (one day) blog about all of the wonderful (and perhaps some less wonderful) experiences I was about to have. Fast forward to January 2020 and I have yet to start a blog – until now that is.

Why now?

  • New decade new me. Hello 2020 and to my 30s.
  • To stay connected. More of my friends and family are going ‘sans’ social media and I want a way to stay connected with them and with those who I do not get to see as often as I would like.
  • To share stories. I want to share more about my experiences than just my photos and in a space where I can interact with friends and family and not have it broadcasted on social media.
  • To be creative. I want to do something productive in my spare time. I’ve enjoyed blogging at work and think it would be a lot more fun to blog about my personal life!

Two thing that I love to do are organise plans and bring people from different parts of my life together (I know, a nightmare for some). Living in the UK has given me many opportunities to bring both friend and strangers (aka likeminded expats) together through common interests. For a lack of creativity or originality – I have decided to call this blog “the glue that holds us together“.

You can expect to hear about:

  • Travels. From small villages in the UK to Iceland to Marrakech, I want to share and document the memories of experiences I have had.
  • Hiking adventures. Since moving to London, I created a hiking/walking group (Almost 2000 and growing!) and have met many expats from all over the world. Roughly once a month we set out to explore somewhere outdoors in and around London.
  • Ever-changing interests. Whatever subject or thing has recently caught my attention – sensory yoga, minimalism or training for 1/2 marathons!
  • Connection. I would love to connect with my friends and family. Everyone else is a bonus!

If I blog successfully over the course of this year, I hope to improve my writing skills and hear from many of you through my comments.

“The most basic and powerful way to connect with another person is to listen. Just listen. Perhaps the most important thing we ever give each other is our attention…. A loving silence often has far more power to heal and to connect than the most well-intentioned words.”
