I began writing this blog as I prepared to move from the suburbs of Paris to Lusaka, the capital city of Zambia.

Please email me or leave a comment if there is a specific topic you would like to read about on my blog. Or visit my other blog, Carpe Diem

  1. Hello. I’m writing on behalf of Selamta — the in-flight magazine of Ethiopian Airlines. I’d like to know more about your canoe safari in Zabezi National Park for a potential article. Because you haven’t written in this blog for several months, I understand that I might not catch you at this location. Do let me know.

    1. Hello Diane,
      I am sorry for the delay in responding. Our ‘canoe safari’ was a guided morning trip on the Zambezi arranged by the lodge – it was not an overnight camping safari. If you are still interested, please let me know and I can provide more details. Thanks,

      1. Hi, Jerri. Thanks for your response. A guided morning trip is probably what we were expecting. We thought it would be a good excursion to tell readers about, as Ndola, Zambia, is a new upcoming destination city for Ethiopian Airlines. Do you have any samples of feature writing, or longer blog posts, and if your style/skill aligns with what we’re looking for, would you be interested in writing for us? My last question is what photos you might have taken on your canoe safari?

        Thanks for letting me know. I look forward to hearing from you,

  2. Hi Jerri,

    I am a casting producer for an American television show about people buying homes abroad. I came across your blog and wanted to reach out to see if you might be interested in being in an episode of our show.

    House Hunters International tells the story of people who pick up and move to an exotic, foreign location to pursue a new life. Being on our show is a lot of fun for our participants and is a great way to document your search for a new home.

    We are casting people who have already secured a home, or who are looking to buy/rent a new home abroad. If you or anyone you know are interested and meet the qualifications, please let me know. I would love to tell you more about the program.

    I look forward to hearing from you!

    1. Hi Rebecca,

      Thank you so much for your interest – your show sounds like a lot of fun. The only problem is that we moved here with my husband’s company, and the house is part of his package (that is to say, the company own it, and we had no choice or input on the accommodation).

      Therefore I don’t think my story is the one you are looking for.

      If I think of anyone more suitable, I will be sure to be in touch.

      Thanks again,
