Look what arrived in the mail today!

A parcel from Nepta, Joe and Emma in Co Galway with two special edition bags of TAYTOs in celebration of St Patrick’s Day – complete with Tricolour and shamrocks!  As Gaeilge” too no less!  (this means all the writing on the packaging is in the Irish language).  Thank you guys, you are just brilliant! xo xo xo.

A tad late arriving but I think Canada Post considers Bowen Island to be like the Outer Hebredies, too remote for regular access … when in fact it is just a 45mins water taxi run from Coal Harbour, Vancouver to Snug Cove, Bowen Island.  But I digress …

Anyone who know me knows my favourite crisps (known as chips in North America) are cheese & onion  flavoured Taytos.  You just can’t go wrong.  They are only available on the island of Ireland, hence my excitement.  Maggie Muldoon even brought me some from Ireland to Kathmandu last December – bliss!  I even shared them with my Nepalese friends which might be a first.  There are some things you just do not share.

I’m about to tuck into a bag now and will keep the second bag for Easter Sunday morning …. far better than any Easter Egg!


About Kate Coffey

After 25+ years in the investment management industry, I packed in my job and spent 2014 living and working in Nepal and Bangladesh, and visited some other places in between. It took me on a journey I did not expect, had me fall in love with Nepal and it's people, and become inspired at the work of Spinal Injury Rehabilitation Centre (SIRC) located 2 hours east of Kathmandu in the Sanga foothills. Since 2014, I have continued my warm relationship with SIRC and worked closely with my friends there in the aftermath of the 2015 earthquakes to date. This blog initially started out as a travelogue of sorts to keep friends and family worldwide updated while I was off on my travels in 2014. Since then it has morphed into a life story of the many places I have lived and worked and of the wonderful people I have met along the way. I hope you enjoy.
