Tickle Me Pink (not another colour from Crayola®)

This blog is about my experiences being an expat wife who recently relocated to New Caledonia for the year. This blog is not an information repository of standard facts that can be found just about anywhere. Here, you'll find experiences that I've personally encountered living here that have tickled me pink. I hope they're able to paint a more interesting colour for my reader's stay on this tropical paradise of an island.

November's already over?  Posted on 11/28/2011

Why Wallis?  Posted on 11/08/2011

Emirates Airlines: how doth I love thee?  Posted on 10/31/2011
I've never felt passionate about airlines ... unless, of course, if one forks some serious dough out of some future kid's college fund to travel above cattle/economy class. Until recently, after a touchy experience, I'm...
