Hi! I'm Lisa. I'm a professionally trained opera singer, translator & urban wanderer since 1988. Having lived in Rome, Paris, Belgrade, New York & now Istanbul I consider myself a full-blown expat & therefore an expert in homesickness. Yes, that's right. As much as I love travelling and exploring the world, I've always found it difficult to maintain roots & feel myself at home. I started this blog & my Youtube channel in part as my work-in-progress to change that. See you around!
