I'm an expat girl; genetically British but mentally and emotionally from somewhere very different. I was born in Hong Kong and lived in Asia and East Africa until I was 18, and then I moved to Europe. Having a cup of tea & a cigarette while staring out the window is my morning routine and I hate it when people interrupt this important activity.
"There is something about safari life that makes you forget all your sorrows and feel as if you had drunk half a bottle of champagne — bubbling over with heartfelt gratitude for being alive." Isak Dinesen aka Karen Blixen, 'Out of Africa'.
