Lottie’s post is a true reflection of her exuberant character. Bias? yes of course its why I fell in love with her (and because she is so very beautiful). Our friends and children read it and its a link to them whilst we are so far away. The fact the so many others find it so engaging is a welcome bonus for a very exceptional lady with such a love of life. Well done Lottie. Love you The Irishman

If you haven’t already subscribed to this Abroad Blog of the Week, you’ll want to. I came across Lottie Nevin when I first started blogging about six months ago. I was hooked by Lottie’s blunt honesty but humorous take on the difficulties of being a Brit new to Jakarta.
