Welcome to my blog.  I’m a “culturally North-American” expat (or perhaps immigrant by this point) who has lived all over the world and, for the past 23+ years, has lived in Europe.  I’m passionate about many subjects, many of which will be discussed in the this blog:  Strength sports, Literature, Geography, Cuisine, Nutrition, Languages, Martial Arts, Cultural Identity and Inter-gender relations are but a few.
