SANDRA BISSELL

My name is Sandra Bissell.
I have been blessed with the opportunity to live as an expatriate for more than 2 decades.

Some of my passions are people, my family, good conversations, traveling, ethnic food, dancing and Capoeira, an Afro-Brazilian-Martial-Art-Dance.

Originally from the countryside of São Paulo state, in Brazil, I have enjoyed life in Kanagawa and Aichi prefectures, in Japan, Boston and San Diego cities, in the United States, São Paulo, Brazil, as an expatriate in my own country, Zurich – Switzerland and most recently Stamford, Connecticut, back to the United States.

As you may guess, I feel the most comfortable within the international community.

What’s your go to food when you are homesick?
.
.
For me, it’s rice & beans.
I love the flavors, the smells and even the pressure cooker hissing noise! .
.
Growing up, my mom religiously  had our pressure cooker on at 10:30 am. Lunch was served at noon. Fun memories I cherish and continue relying on to inspire myself to cook rice & beans frequently at home. .
.
I particularly love how easy it is
to cook this healthy and delicious meal! 😋

One of the crucial things to do during any type of transition, when YOU decide it’s time to start your new next chapter, is to create a routine.
.
.
It’s an understatement to say that it can be very, very hard to start all over again after a big life transition, right? .
.
So, today, now that my place feels more like home, I knew, although my body didn’t,  that it was time to re-start my exercise routine.
.
.

I’m happy I did! 😊

Sunsets in Marseille are magical!
.
.
On top of that, being in the Vieux-Port,  founded around 600 B.C., and where the oldest city in France started, makes it even more special. .

After almost a month apart, my ‘mom chèri’ and I are back together again.❤️
.
.
We spent most of our Saturday hiking at a gorgeous & nearby park called Callanque, while catching up and enjoying each other’s company. .
.
My heart is full of gratitude, and my body pleasantly tired from all of our hiking. 
Life is good. 😊

Such a treat to land in gorgeous Nice during a sunny day! ☀️ .
.
No need for filters or image enhancers this afternoon, even though the photos were taken from a plane. ✈️ .
