At 10 this morning, I just could not get the idea of pancakes out of my mind. As I went through my morning routine, the sweet aroma of maple syrup seemed to beckon (although a close alternative would indeed be bacon) me onward. So I resolved to do what any self-respecting expat would do on a Monday morning—set out for brunch.
Seeing as it was a brunch, I naturally felt inclined to order a blend of fruit juices, tea, my desired pancakes, and of course a bacon cheeseburger. Because naturally, I’m brunching and breakfast is only half the deal.
It was this delicious gluttony that sparked the idea for a blog series: Little Moments. As an expat and frequent traveler, I started this site not to post travel noise about what to see and where to go next, but to share the moments that make being abroad or on the road that much sweeter.
Backpacks & Blackboards will continue to have its long thoughtful articles as well as the Let’s Get Personal editorial letters. Little Moments posts are simply small snippets to display some of the daily grind I go through being an expat. I hope this gives you, the reader, a better chance to get to know the real me, the one beyond just the boarding pass.
