Mila’s birth story

Initially I never thought of sharing Mila’s birth story on the blog. However, I enjoy reading other blogger’s pregnancy updates and birth stories so I decided to share my experience with you. Looking back and comparing my two deliveries – I can say that they were both very different. This second delivery was so much […]

A New Beginning

When in December 2015 I published this post, I conscientiously missed one more very important reason which is preventing me to post regularly on the blog. Out of superstition I decided not to share on my blog that I am pregnant and expecting my second child. I love reading pregnancy posts that other women publish […]

Books I read recently and books I want to read

One of the things i enjoy doing in my free time is reading books. I usually read on the train when traveling to and from work, and in the evenings after we put our daughter to bed. I usually say that I don’t have enough time to read books, but the truth is that sometimes […]

2015 – A year in Retrospection

As a whole, 2015 was a good year for me although I didn’t travel as much as I wanted to. In total I visited 7 countries, 6 of which new. That’s a lot of new countries for me in a year and I doubt I will repeat that number any time soon. That’s thanks to […]

Afternoon tea at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver

My birthday and my husband’s birthday are respectively on October 10th and October 11th. Each year we celebrate on October 11th as we never celebrate birthdays in advance – only on the day or after it. Last year we went to Grouse Mountain and had one of the scariest experiences ever. We made the mistake […]

Why I am not posting regularly?

I haven‘t posted on the blog for more than 3 months. There are a lot of reason for that. Reasons, not excuses. I read somewhere that if you are a blogger you shouldn’t publish negative posts or complain about things or explain why you don’t publish. People obviously don’t want to read negative things. But […]

A taste of summer in February

We rarely travel somewhere in the first two months of the year although it is very common amongst Canadians. And it is understandable why – the winter in Canada is cold and snowy, and the skies are covered with dark clouds. Actually, the only time we travelled in February was in 2011 when we visited […]

A week in Oxford with a toddler

Every year we try to take a week or so off from work in the autumn and head to a sunny place so that we could charge our batteries with sunlight and vitamin D before the cold, grey, rainy Brussels winter hits.

Why I don’t want my dream to come true?

In my dreams I have always imagined that I live on an exotic island with tropical beaches, palm trees, and white sand, and where the water is clear blue and every day is a sunny day. These islands are not only in my dreams, they do exist in reality – for example the islands in […]

Liebster Award

I have been nominated for the Liebster Award! What it is All About? The Liebster Award is granted by bloggers to bloggers with fewer than 600 followers who they feel are “up and coming” and deserve some recognition and support to keep on truckin’ – like a big bloggy hug and thumbs up!  This is a simply a […]
