I love Liverpool mainly for it’s diversity, there is literally something for everyone with so much choice from family days out, couple retreats, shopping trips and nights out, not to mention their abundance of cultural festivals and museums.   […]

Helping Your Children Adjust When Moving To Another Country

November 14, 2018 admin 0

There is a lot to consider before moving to another country, including looking for a job, finding a quality global health insurance provider, making new social circles and much more. It can become easy to get wrapped up in your own moving process and as a result, we end up overlooking our children, who are going through the same thing, albeit from a different perspective. Moving to another country can be worrying and upsetting for […]

Weird and wonderful houses from around the world

October 15, 2018 admin 0

When I was growing up people lived in houses and animals lived in barns. Of course there were different types of houses, including flats, bungalows and apartments but generally speaking you lived in a house.

My first ever camping experience

April 2, 2018 admin 0

Throw back to my bucket list and the time I ticked off camping thanks to our friends letting us tag along…. Loads of my friends had been banging on about camping for years, facebook was full of pictures of everyone and their dog (literally in most cases) camping, but I always failed to see the attraction. You sleep on the floor with a thin bit of material protecting you from the elements, it’s freezing cold, […]

Planning a holiday to Utah

Last week I admitted that sometimes, just sometimes, when I am meant to be busy writing in my office I find myself online shopping and dreaming of holidays. Well, this time I have taken it a tad further and actually planned an entire family holiday to Utah.
