It's easy to jump to an assumption that a blogger can just do a bit of research and churn out post after post after post. It might be the most comfortable reaction to think, "what does this chick know about life as a citizen of the world?"
The answer to that is: more than you could fathom.
Those who know me, know my story. Grew up between the rocks, the islands and the peninsula; moved across hemispheres to study and practise medicine in languages completely unlike my native tongue. The most common questions I get are...
"how did you get there?"
Mind you, I'm no expert at this global citizenship - but I do have my ample share of experiences. And throughout my blog, I will share a number of those anecdotes (and even some actual research) with you.
You may have comments about my self-endowed global citizenship; you may have questions about being a citizen of the world. Either way, I'd love to hear from you.
