The purpose of this blog is twofold: first, to chronicle and document my life abroad (from the mundane to the exceptional) and second, to provide a simple platform where I can share my thoughts, reflections and personal observations on everything that makes up the daily grind of life.

On the second point, let me say upfront that I don’t have high hopes for any groundbreaking epiphanies. My aim is much smaller. I only want to tell the truth. At least the truth as I see it.  So this is probably the appropriate place for an Eminem quote:

“I can’t tell you what it really is
I can only tell you what it feels like”

This is a place to share what I’m feeling. Even if what I feel, more often than not, is all wrong.
