About Me

In July 2010 I got the opportunity to move to Singapore (thanks to my husband's job) and had the most amazing five and half years there. Having never lived or worked abroad or even considered doing that before it was a really huge step at the time. Sadly all good things have to come to an end and in April 2016 we returned to the UK. When I moved to Singapore I began blogging as a way of keeping me active in my new home and also to keep family and friends back in the UK up-to-date with what we were doing. At that point I wasn't sure how long I'd keep it up for but I blogged for our whole time there and got well and truly bitten by the blog bug in the process. 

I went from being a lady of leisure initially to working as well and made the most of my time there (hopefully my blog is testament to that) both during the highs and some lows. My Singapore blog (www.expatadventuresinsingapore.com) gave me the opportunity to have some fabulous experiences and I made some fantastic friendships through it too. I never could have imagined just how valuable it would be when I began writing it in 2010.

When I started blogging I didn't really think about what might happen when we moved on and really that blog (and its title) was very focused on our life in Singapore and it seemed difficult to keep it relevant when we moved away. Hence this new blog which I hope I can keep using whatever we do and wherever we may end up in the future.

Before I finish though just a little more about me for anyone who hasn't read my Singapore blog, I love exploring the well known and less well known parts of places I visit whether that be a city or a village. I love history, animals and particularly cats, cake and anything sweet so desserts are always a winner with me, eating food but I admit I'm a terrible cook, thank goodness for a husband with great talents there. I also love reading, travelling, socialising with friends but I love spending time at home too.

If you read my blog in Singapore, welcome along or back to this new chapter in my life and if you are new to my blog, 'hi!' Either way thanks for stopping by and please do get in touch and come back again!

For now though, our adventure has taken me, my husband and our Singaporean rescue cat, George from Singapore to Edinburgh via a brief stop in Maidstone, Kent. I'm loving exploring this exciting Scottish city (and the wider area) some more having visited several times before, with its fascinating past and beautiful architecture. 

Where's the next adventure?
