About Me

Hi! I'm Laura,

In July 2010, thanks to my husband's job, I got the opportunity to move to Singapore. Having never lived or worked abroad or even considered that I remember it was a really huge step but ultimately it was one of the best things that could have happened. After five and a half years there, 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. 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.

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

After our return to the UK and a brief stop in Kent (my home county) our adventure brought us and our Singaporean rescue cat, George to Edinburgh in September 2016. I'm currently loving having the chance to explore this exciting Scottish city and the wider area more.

My husband, never being one to sit still for long though, takes on work projects meaning he travels very regularly to various countries often for prolonged periods of time. So as a semi solo explorer here in Edinburgh I'm always looking for new things to do and places to visit either to keep me busy when I'm on my own or to do with him when he's here. Get in touch if you have any good suggestions.

Where's the next adventure? Read on to find out.
