I live an international life. I don’t travel that frequently and can usually be found in my living room watching daytime TV. That in itself can be an international life in the ‘Global Sense of Place’- sense. (As a professional free-lance Geographer I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that in fact all of us live a life full of international influences based on current commodity chains, etc. And as interesting and eye opening as those chains can be, that’s not the international I’m dealing with here).
I am originally from Cleveland, OH. I currently reside in London, UK. I am married to a New Zealander with full Croatian heritage. We met on Safari in Africa.
This is what I mean about my international life. The cultural influences of Midwest America (with touches of psychedelic California), Croatia, New Zealand and London combine in a flat where time begins. Literally. We experience midnight one minute before the Royal Observatory.
This apple & prosciutt pie with silver fern motif is a surprisingly yummy mix, but there is the odd flavour burst that can make the mixture a bit more surprising.
This blog isn’t about that, necessarily. But it helps to give background. This blog is the opportunity to write about my everyday journeys. I don’t tend to go far, but my head tends to go a lot further.
