About Me

My name is Jo-Anne Liburd and I’m Canadian. I started this blog in 2008 to chronicle my experience as a VSO volunteer in Sri Lanka with a local NGO called Sewalanka. The views expressed in this weblog are my own and do not necessarily reflect those of VSO.

I’ve since returned from my placement in Sri Lanka, but since I like to travel a fair bit, I’ve taken off again. This time, I’m studying French in France for a couple of months. Now this blog chronicles that experience. Enjoy!

    Hi Jo anne

    as you can see from my name I am French but have been living in England for the past 11 years. End of August I am going to live in Colombo for two years and was wondering if we could exchange a few emails. I loved your blog and you seem to have an objective idea of what it is like for a single woman to live in Sri Lanka.

    How is life in France? I need to read back as I don’t know where you are in France and how long for!
    I come from the South West a small village near Pau,

    I am looking forward to hearing from you hopefully.

    Best wishes
