About the blogger

I’m a fortyish woman with tropical childhood memories. I used to work in the travel industry and I’ve lived in several countries.

I now live in Northern Europe where I find myself freezing during the long winters, always dreaming of somewhere sunnier… where the snow has already melted away.

This blog started out as a travel photo blog, and at some point I co-created the Friendly Friday photo challenge, which grew popular and still lives on. But now, my blog has evolved into more of a generic storytelling space.

I love to write. This is where you’ll find my stories – past, present, future, and imagined.

I’m also Mom to two 4-year-olds.

I appreciate all of your comments, likes and visits – thank you! Hope to see you here again!


All the photos in this blog are mine and were taken by me. (Except the one on this page! Credit: Hubby.)

Please don’t use my photos without my permission and without crediting this blog. You are of course very welcome to reblog and share my posts, linking them back here to The Snow Melts Somewhere. Thanks!

  2. Your blog title resonates with me very much – I’m always harking after sun, sea and warmth! I read your interview too – ‘My childhood was filled with after-school swims in my best friend’s pool’ – aah those were the days! For me it was playing in the pool at the club we used to go to – the usual after school activity!
