Why I love my neighbourhood on ExpatEdna.com

I'm thrilled to be published on Expat Edna today as part of Edna's I Love My Neighbourhood series.

I've been a fan of this series forever (isn't it a great idea?) and through it I have learned about so many neighbourhoods across the world I would never have heard of otherwise like Taipei's Da'an district, Seoul's Cheonho-dong, and Shanghai's French Concession.

I've also been following Edna's blog for awhile (she's my age, lives in Paris, is engaged, is a successful international sports media reporter, and is planning an expat wedding with her partner Mike!) and was completely enthralled with her Twitter feed during the London 2012 Olympics.

So Edna, now you know, I'm a publicly-confessed fan and I think you're pretty cool. Thanks for having me, and forcing me to sit down and really think about why I love my neighbourhood. It was a great exercise, and one I'd highly recommend to everyone - expat or not.

Have you ever thought about it?
