About the Blog

In September 2008, my husband Kevin and I set off with a cat and a couple of boxes to Mumbai, India. My blog, The Robertsons of Mumbai, was created to serve as an informative report to our families, and continued as we were eventually transferred to Thailand. Raw food abounds, stomach bugs and arachnids pose an ever-lingering threat, and plenty of Thai mispronunciations ensure that our journey is often-tragic but always-comical. We hope you will benefit from these posts if you are a traveller, mother, household manager, health food fanatic, or lover of Asia. Click on a category that interests you and settle in with a nice cup of vegan chai tea!
