A Total TaiTai Tale

Tale of a Total TaiTai who was in Beijing & Beyond and is now in Singapore & Surroundings!

Welcome to my little corner of the Web

Starting Was Easy…
Keeping It Going Is Harder.

I show up here every single day and post (at least) one picture…
and it’s been going on since 5th August 2013.

********

This is the follow-up of a little personal blog started in 2006 (!) when we moved to Beijing, followed up by a blog of our time in Norway (but abandoned after 2 years) but…

We are back in the ‘Jing….
Let’s the madness begin.
We are not new at this…
It’s 20+ years in the making:
USA, France, Argentina, Scotland, China, Norway & China (again) are the places we lived.
As for the places we visited… Should I do an A to Z list?!

Update: We left the ‘Jing and move to Sing’…. 20 years and we are still spinning around (with) the world

Ready, Set… Go

We are playing Game of Tetris #2, almost 4 years after game #1

We covered the 420 kms through France, Belgium and the Netherlands in a little of 4.5 hours

Starting our list of “Last” with J.

Last stroll to favorite places, last dinner in Paris, last shopping trip…

Back in Paris where we have no problem closing streets to extend restaurant seating.

The calm before the next set of craziness.

When you are really happy about the great progress you made on the Big2022TidyingUp and then realize that you also have to go through the big cantines/trunks that usually go from your past posting (country) to your next posting (country) but this time the “next posting” is actually Paris and the cantines won’t go there (no space!) but stay in the summer house. 😭

I visited “my” little tree.

As I came back home from a different direction I usually arrive from I pass by this walnut trees field and was happy to see that “my” tree was still standing strongly.

It’s not the first time the tree makes an appearance on the blog. I wrote about it in 2014 & 2018 so it was time for it to make its Every-4-Years appearance once again 😉

I’m always fascinated by this particular tree. Rows and rows of straight walnut trees and this single one. They were all planted and started growing from the same place then one decided to take a different growth path. Taking different path happens… For trees and people 😉

Still on my own path.

I would highly recommend a personal assistant when you move around as much as we do. One who is highly organized and takes photos and notes of what is in each “cantine/trunk” is best.

Pro tip: Marry said personal assistant and you don’t have to pay them 😉

Happy birthday Singapore

Even your buildings are painted in the colors of your flag.

Gone but not forgotten.
