My name means “life” in Greek — hence the name of my blog, which started when, after finally completing nearly twenty years of schooling, I found that the words didn’t stop. I needed a place to put them, to get them out of my head, and thus a blog was born.

Since then, it has become a whole lot more. In its current incarnation, my blog is a travelogue of our sabbatical year in Lisbon, Portugal. It began as a simple way of updating our families and friends at home, and has become a lens through which I view and process my life as an expat.

So stick around, and please comment liberally. Because who knows where life, and my blog, will take me next?
