Bio: Scientist, writer, parent, home maker, traveler, ardent cyclist and swimmer. I blog about everyday issues. I have lived in Africa, Asia, Australasia and Europe so my view of life is coloured by my experiences of the various cultures I have been lucky to experience. I love food and I will try most things at least once. My blog is an attempt to record my journey to utopia (if it actually exists). I love life and I love humour.
