I feel like lately, the only thing I ever feel like writing about is my journey into another country. It’s not because I FEEL like boring you with the ins and outs of what moving entails but it’s because this is literally my entire life. I have a million things to do and they ALL revolve around moving to a new place. Migration is not easy, that’s one thing I know for sure! The weird part is that it feels so much like my real life has just come to

This weekend was a tough one for me. It was the first time I’ve chosen to leave my baby in the care of someone else for a reason other than being in hospital. A few weeks ago we came across a great discounted offer for a Bed & Breakfast in a little town about 45 minutes from where we live. We decided that we needed a break from our real lives, from our drama and the last 3 months. So we booked ourselves in. I have been so excited about

I got married in December 2012 to the absolute love of my life and best person in the world (want some toast with that cheese?) and we immediately got on a plane and flew off into the sunset. We are both fans of exploring and staying in less known places where locals are more likely to go than tourists but for our honeymoon, we agreed, the criteria was simple. We wanted an all-inclusive, full service, don’t have to carry your wallet around anywhere kind of place and it was the

I love travelling! Nothing refreshes the soul and inspires the mind like being utterly and completely submerged in a culture that is completely not your own. I will drop everything for a chance to go exploring around the world and it is my mission to get to North America so that I can say I’ve been to every continent except Antarctica (one day I’ll go there too). Everywhere you go has something to make the trip worth it and you really have to be open to new experiences. When I

“You know those things you’ve always wanted to do? You should go do them.” There are so many things that we could do to give our lives more meaning. So many of us just spend our days between work and home and we don’t really make the most of our lives. As a result, we have no energy and don’t feel like we’re really living and reaching our full potential. One way to ensure that we beat the boredom and make the most of our lives is to create a

So I was thinking about the things I do and the places I go to when I’m having a lousy day and what helps me to get out of the funk.  Over the course of my lifetime this has meant different things some of them are too ridiculous to help anyone on an average day but others you might find useful if you ever find yourself stuck in a rut and need some sort of inspiration.    Travel. See I warned you that this might be a bit ridiculous. There

I think sometimes we take for granted that we only have a short time on this earth. Some of us, if we’re lucky will live to experience more of the world than others. Most likely, even then, we will take for granted what that means. Not everyone gets to leave the country they were born in, to fly to faraway places and experience the things that those lands have to offer. Some of us, might even find that those places appeal to us more than the land in which we were

This is a list, in no particular order, of things I absolutely don’t want to live without. My husband Gerard who is my absolute best friend. There isn’t a nicer person in the whole world than him and I am so incredibly lucky to have him in my life. Good food– I love medium rare steak with chips, oysters smothered in lemon juice and tabasco sauce, sushi and hearty cheese board. My handbag collection – I am an absolute bag lady and love nothing more than extending the collection in my
