Mommy and Expat—A Busy Week Online!

Vote at the Expats Blog Awards!

The week has been busy web-wise, and my two “identities”, “mommy” and “expat” were put to good use for an award nomination and an interesting interview. First of all, I’m happy to announce that Expats Blog nominated Correr Es Mi Destino for the Expat Blog Awards 2012. Second, I was interviewed by Mummy in Provence as part of her “Global Differences series” in which she showcases stories of mothers having a baby abroad. Read More »

How to Meet People in Canada

Cana­di­ans are often described as the friend­liest peo­ple in the world. Even in Canada how­ever it can still be as hard for sin­gles to meet com­pan­ions.

Me, My Feet and I

Freshly Painted Toes, Ottawa, June 2012

Not only my feet aren’t supermodel size, they aren’t molded to fit in stilettos or whatever expensive fancy shoes women are supposed to like.

Little Italy

A while ago, I complained that nothing ever happened in Little Italy but some pasta-eating. I was wrong. When I arrived at the yoga studio located in the heart of Little Italy on Friday, I realized that it was the “Settimana Italiana di Ottawa”, the Italian week.
