    Tuesday, April 21, 2015

    If I ever pictured my pregnancy, I imagined myself surrounded by friends and family who diligently escorted me to ultrasounds and kept watch over my belly for 9 months. In reality, no one from my family saw me pregnant, except via Skype. And that’s ok. Because although having a baby abroad can be a lonely […]

    Tuesday, March 31, 2015

    I’ve given my advice on how to get comfortable on the roads in Qatar (hint: practice!) in a previous blog post, but what should you do once you’re safely (ha!) in the saddle? How can you make it through the daily dash to work, the crawl to Carrefour or the Friday night fury? Here are […]

    Tuesday, March 3, 2015

I used to be sick and tired

Did I tell you I’m a health freak now? No? Well it’s true. A bona fide lettuce lover, that’s me. You see I used to be sick and tired. Chronically. For about 10 years. That was me, aged 16, failing French class because I couldn’t focus. I was the chick who fell asleep in her […]
