Your feet will get wet. You arrive by boat with all your airport gear, luggage, maybe even a hat for the sun, but the island laughs at your formality. The strong sea breeze knocks off your hat, the sand engulfs your toes, the salt water licks at your jeans. With your shoes in hand, you […]

Ah summer. You are finally here. Summer in Asia brings sweaty backs, sticky legs and rain showers.

Warning – this post is not for vegetarians. Exactly two years ago we were bundled up in our sweaters and socks waiting for an entire roasted lamb to be ready.

I never thought I would be so obsessed with nap time, not my own, but my child’s. And not only for his well-being, but for my own sanity. The last time I took a nap was probably in grade school, unless you count falling asleep on trains and buses while travelling or an afternoon in […]
