It happened that it was Easter weekend, and during our planning process, found that you could request tickets to the various Easter services held … Continue reading Easter at the Vatican
One of the biggest questions I’m asked about moving abroad (aside from the big WHY?!), is how did I manage to save money to actually pack it in and head across the pond. Let me tell you, it was the cliché “change your lifestyle” bs. Without taking on a second job, I couldn’t bring in … Continue reading Saving Money to Move Abroad

We're quite excited about this holiday as it's the only long holiday we have booked for 2018 and my husband has never been to Asia. My travel to Asia has … Continue reading Travel Planning: Sri Lanka

TL;DR - We went to Edinburgh for a weekend break, and it mostly consisted of sleeping and drinking. This is a shite post about what we did with a few rec's at the bottom. My husband and I got a dog (the love of our life, Reuben) in November. Since we got him, we've not … Continue reading Weekend Break: Edinburgh
