Expect the Unexpected

Expect the Unexpected

Being a mother of three children, running a business, having a husband who travels every other week, and trying to fit my own travel schedule into this lovely mess while having time for myself, too… is a HUGE challenge. If something, I’ve learned something, especially since I became a mother almost seventeen years ago: there’s never…

Raising Multi-Lingual Children

Raising Multi-Lingual Children

When I was a child, my biggest (very ambitious!) dream was to be able to travel the world.

Given that I was a child in the communist era,…

Hello Netherlands!

Hello Netherlands!

Warning – This is going to be a VERY personal post. If you know me, you know that I was born and living my whole life in Hungary (until now – see below). A country that is beautiful indeed, but has been having crazy challenges in the past years. As always, I try to avoid sharing any…

Just a Cappuccino — Or More?…

Just a Cappuccino — Or More?…

I miss so many things these days. First and foremost, friends and family abroad. With these travel restrictions, I feel I am in a cage. A pleasant one, for sure, safe and sound, with family, and we have lots of joy together. It could be much worse, I know. I cannot complain… But still… I…

I made a mistake…

I made a mistake…

Cover photo: Walking around in Singapore between workshop days — Did several workshops there in Jan and Feb I made a mistake recently. Yes, I did: over-committed. I did more workshops in the first three months than I did the previous six months in total. Traveled for 31 days in the first 80 days of…
