Bonjour toute le monde!

I had this blog set-up almost two years ago and, other than a separate book blog (which I sporadically update) and a bit of smart-assery on social media, I haven’t written anything in a while. I’ve been busy (although apparently in Europe you’re never really busy).

Bit of background: I moved to Europe (from a third-world country in Asia) when I turned 35 because of a new job. Now, I have never left my country before this. Not even on vacation. I never dreamed of coming here much more living here, a country whose official languages (all 4 of them!) I do not speak nor understand.

But here I am writing this in what was projected as the 3rd richest country in the whole world; in the city which also has the 7th highest cost-of-living index for expatriates in Europe.  DO NOT quote me on that.

As a matter of fact, do not quote me on anything. Do not take this blog too seriously either. I originally wanted to post “new” things I experience but I guess it’s too late for that now. Or is it?
