Welcome to Call Home Dear. We’re Kristin & Diarmuid, an American girl and an Irishman who live and work in Hong Kong. This blog is where we talk about our travels, recipes and our little Hong Kong apartment. We also like to design and compile mixtapes just for fun that become the soundtracks to our life here abroad.

Kristin’s two sisters, Katie, based in San Francisco, and Mary, based in Chicago, are our contributors. Katie shares her love for gardening, cooking and all things “green”, while Mary shares her traveling expertise as someone who flies twice each week for work.


This blog is all about simplifying travel and finding balance in daily life. So dial it back and Call Home Dear, and bring that feeling of home with you wherever you go.
