Book Review: I Am Pilgrim

Title: I Am Pilgrim Author: Terry Hayes Genre: Thriller/ Spy Blurb: A breakneck race against time...and an implacable enemy. An anonymous young woman murdered in a run-down hotel, all identifying characteristics dissolved by acid. A father publicly beheaded in the blistering heat of a Saudi Arabian public square. A notorious Syrian biotech expert found eyeless in a Damascus junkyard. Smoldering human remains on a remote mountainside in Afghanistan. A flawless plot to commit an appalling crime against humanity. One path links them all, and only one man can make the journey. Pilgrim.' I often read for entertainment, the way I used to watch TV.

Breaking Bread- Guacamole

A while back, I was invited to a wedding of my friend, Magda, who lived Mexico. I arrived early to Mexico to hang out with her and her sister Marcela, with whom I was also friends. The week there was amazing (have you seen the mariachi photos?!). Her entire family was wonderful and I had locals there to show me around. Other than my amazing memories of that week, one of my greatest take-aways is my go-to guacamole recipe. Don't maim me when I say this, but prior to that trip... I wasn't the biggest guacamole. I would go so far as to say I didn't like avocados. That all changed after Magda and her family took me to a dinner club. I'm not sure if you can call it guacamole, or if it's more of a

Expat Experience: Home for the Holidays

Seasons greetings pilgrims! So if you read my last post you know that Christmas 2019 was the first time that I had been home since I decided to live abroad. It was such a good trip overall. Three weeks blew by. My goal on this trip was to really enjoy it as I haven't been here in so long and I don't know when I'll be back. See all the people, do all the things and eat all the food. Landing in America I hit the ground running, jet-lag be damned. One of my best friends, Danni, was getting married and I had the privilege of being in the wedding. She and our friend Mikyba picked me up from the airport (Three hours later than anticipated because of a missed connection and a lost bag but we are fo

Last Christmas...

Kia Ora pilgrims! Welcome back! I recently had the opportunity to go home for the first time in almost two years. Since I left the US in April 2018, there have been a lot of holidays that I have missed spending with friends and family. Of them all, the hardest are Christmas and Thanksgiving. I was especially grateful to have been able to come home for most of December. To avoid any confusion. This blog is about My first Christmas abroad...not the Wham holiday classic. Though I wasn't able to make it home for the last holiday season, I wasn't alone. I found kind, caring people to take me in. Both this year and last I have shared Thanksgiving with new friends.
