Hi, my name is Martine. I’m an international public health consultant, world traveller and citizen of the world. This blog is for those interested in living well and passionately by way of cultural exploration and exploring the fine art of living. My writings reflect how I create a healthy globally inspired environment at home as I aspire to raise happy and healthy petit citizen of the world. To reach my aspirations, I know that the journey starts with me. My goal is not only to live a happy, healthy and well balanced life, but also to thrive!
You will see that my way to thrive is to explore the fine art of living an international life. I bring the world home through global cuisine, languages, music, books, art, travel, culture, and more from around the world. I write about how I think, eat and live—recipes I share are all vegetarian. Some are vegan and/or gluten-free. I consider myself a bon vivant and believe in enjoying life as the French do. Occasionally, you will see posts on decadent desserts, good wine, and high quality chocolate. The key to enjoying such pleasures without guilt, and remaining healthy, is temperance. I don’t prepare or eat such pleasures everyday!
Here, I share my cultural adventures in the kitchen, at home, in the community and abroad. I hope you enjoy being part of the Petit World Citizen community. I look forward to hearing your comments and views as we embark on this exciting journey of life exploration through the lens of global culture. I also hope your visit here inspires you to live globally, wherever your life journey takes you. To receive updates on recipes, travel and tips on thriving, please subscribe to this blog.
