Remembering Mum

Today is the first anniversary of my mother’s passing in Cork last year.

I remember receiving the news from my sister Maeve just before I boarded the plane from Vancouver, and how tender the Air Canada crew were throughout the flight, giving me three seats to myself for the long flight.  I am forever grateful for their kindness.

In Ireland, it also happens to be Mother’s Day today, a poignant day for the Coffeypots but fitting all the same as we remember our Mum. 


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.
