Boy behind the blog: Link Up

They say that behind every blogger is an hungry partner in crime waiting to eat their dinner, hoping that it will still be warm by the time the blogger has taken snaps from 15,000 angles.

They say that behind every cheesy posing shot of a bloggers feet at the beach, there is someone lounging next to them rolling their eyes.

They say that behind the heated discussions as to whether Chips are called Crisps, and Lollies called Sweets that both parties will agree that no matter the name, both are delicious and good reward to questions like “What should I blog about today?”


Tokyo, Japan. 

I’m rather lucky to have a very supportive other half – he’s saddled with a wanderlusting Kiwi after all – and happily joins in the crazy things planned & suggested to him. Most of the time.

He has written before about his Anglo-Kiwi Experience – The other side of the Expat story but with the guest post take-over the rest of this week, and finding the Boy Behind the Blog Link Up, he kindly offered to join in. I’ll leave you in his capable hands.


In the general spirit of this blog a few random questions from past Boy behind the Blog posts, so I’ve chosen a few older questions. The things I do for my Kiwi…


1. Describe yourself in five words.

Thoughtful, hard-working, lazy, mischievous, grouch. (Edit: I’m surprised nagged isn’t in there…)

  My born and bred Northern Lad.

2. If you could live anywhere, where would you live?

Marylebone, central London.

3. Sand or snow?

Snow. No question.

 Exploring Battersea Power Station.

4. Who is your favourite band/musician?
 The Beatles. I’m a huge George Harrison fan – definitely the most under-rated and under appreciated Beatle.

5. You’re cooking a romantic dinner- what is your go-to dish?
 Cottage pie! (Edit: *Rolls Eyes* – if Mr Kiwi ate nothing else for the rest of his life, he’d be happy. Good thing he’s a good cook. I would have said his Steak though… it’s a gift)

 My best ever Birthday treat – a trip down Regents Canal

6. Complete the sentence: “Never have I ever…”
 Left home in the morning unshowered.

7. What would you do with $1,000,000?
 Buy a nicer, bigger house to return to after work. (Edit: The Cat is getting rather demanding…)
