Blog History

Prior to 2011 I had a blog by the same name that listed 1,000s of blogs by category and country.

For some inexplicable reason, Google, in its infinite wisdom, lost/closed/deleted my account. I lost more than four years of blogging.

I have continued blogging, but this time on Wordpress, this will be my only blog on Blogspot. I hope to resurrect what I had.

You can visit my other blogs, the links are on the sidebar.

Eventually, there will be Libraries added and worthy blogs linked.

An Ex-pat in Indonesia

Lottie Nevin

An account of my life in Indonesia

There that about says it all, doesn't it? Except that it's a well written and very interesting blog by an ex-pat.

Fish Market post

"I’m Lottie and I’ve been living in Indonesia for just over a year. In a previous life I lived and worked in London. I’m half Dutch and half English. I am not a writer, but I love to communicate and so I started this blog primarily as a way of keeping my 5 children... "

"What I hadn’t reckoned on was that others might want to read about what we are getting up to as well. As the weeks and months go by, it’s been very encouraging to gain followers and have people comment. I now follow lots of other blogs too and have consequently discovered the joys of blogging in every sense."

There's a couple of quotes from her 'About' page. 

The subjects that she writes on are many and varied. The one that tickled my fancy initially was called Frightfully British, but I have since read Phish Food, A Chance Encounter with a Penis (I said many and varied), Two Husbands and a Spectacular Waterfall, Curl Up and Dye and Oh My Giddy Aunt! All are great stories and most are liberally sprinkled with great photos... ah except the 'penis' one.

And a quote from a post:

"As it turned out the highlight of my visit to Ulun Danu was not in fact the temple itself, but an extremely diminutive Japanese woman who, when walking past me, let out the most impressive fart that I have EVER heard in my life. Seriously Folks, this fart was not just any old fart, this fart was the LOUDEST and LONGEST I have ever heard. Of course I have never farted in my life, but if I were too, this lady would be an extremely hard act to follow. How anyone so petito could make that amount of noise for so long I have no idea. This was a record breaker and I was mightily impressed."

Never have I heard a fart described so eloquently.

This blog is a 'must visit.'   


  1. Lottie has read this review, and for some reason couldn't post a comment here, but left one on her blog. I paste it here for her:

    I’m speechless! no seriously. I’ve just checked your link above and was staggered to see what you had written. THANK YOU for your very kind words and huge generosity, I feel very flattered. You’ve made my day! (Lottie punches air with fist…HUGE grin on her face)

    For some reason everytime I try to leave comments on Blogger sites there seems to be some Indo firewall that comes up – not sure why, it may on the other hand be me being very inept.

    Looking forward to reading posts, I have a feeling that they are going to be good fun and also checking out the other blogs that you have listed.

    Thanks again and if you need some marmite, you know where I am! :)

  2. I vouch for the fact that this is a must read blog. A veritable hoot.

  3. >Andrew, thanks for your input, appreciated.
