Happy American Birthday

Happy American Birthday, to my incredible husband. 

One year ago today, you landed in the US, and started a new chapter in your life. I hope you've had as much fun the past year as I have.  It's been a continuous series of firsts, and there are plenty more to be had!


  1. If he's a Twitter person, he would love the Mind the Chat sessions the BBC America web site does every Friday for British expats in the US. 1pm Eastern time.

  2. Request for registering eCurator

    Dear kristina,

    Hello, this is Tomo.
    I'm 1st year student in UCLA located at Los Angeles.

    We will start a web service, called "eCurator" from 3rd August.
    eCurator is a web-based platform that connects overseas travelers to local residents in the area they are traveling to help provide travel advice and recommendations.

    I moved to LA in last August to study at UCLA.
    Thanks to the advice from people who have lived in LA for a long time, my life in LA has become colorful.
    So, I came to think that if local people provide travelers with their experience, their travels become more fun and something unique.

    You put out the useful information about your living city on your blog.
    So, could you talk to taravelers and share them with your local experience?
    In return for your kindness, travelers will pay you $6 for 30 minites conversation as a gratitude through our website.
    Our concept is that local residents can earn some money which allows them to buy Starbucks Latte and Scone if they talked to prospect travelers.

    If you are interested in this service, please access the link below.
    It explains the detail of eCurator and contains contact info.

    Hope you will share your special experience with travelers

    Best Regards,

    1. Hi Tomo,
      Brilliant idea! I toyed around with doing something like this myself when I was in London, and just ran out of steam.

      Best of luck to you in your endeavour.
