About Me

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 doing 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, 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 took us and our Singaporean rescue cat, George to Edinburgh in September 2016. I'm 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, has work projects meaning he travels very regularly to various other countries for varying amounts of time. So as a semi solo explorer in Edinburgh I'm always looking for new things to do and places to visit either on my own or with him when he's here. Let me know if you have any good suggestions.

Before I finish just a little more about the kind of things I enjoy and what you can probably expect to read here. I love travelling and exploring whenever the opportunity arises, history is right up there along with reading and animals, in particular cats. I love good food and adore cake, actually anything sweet is always a winner with me.

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