I only just discovered this site, but I already love it. Mary Anne’s point of view is definitely unique, and her writing is sharp and witty. In this post she talks us through the novelty of having an oven and her attempt to make proper cookies while living in China.
Learning more about the cultures we visit and in which we embed ourselves, even for a day or two, is a great travel perk. In this post Jack and Jill take a look back at a place where time passes slowly and no one has a schedule to keep.
This is a poignant tale of some truly awful experiences Kirsten had in Buenos Aires. Rather than turn into a rant against the city, Kirsten describes her encounters and reactions in order to shine light on the lessons she took away from these terrible travel moments.

I love this post for its honest and in depth look at this marvelous town.
