Summer in the South of France…

As our European adventure starts to wind down I finally have a moment to recap a little on the last 7 weeks here in the South of France. We are very very lucky that the Husband’s parents bought a little holiday property in a tiny village in France about 90 mins drive from Toulouse in…

Our experience introducing solids while travelling…

Now that Baby B is 11 months old (!) we are well and truly into the world of solid food. However, when we left on our big euro journey, that journey was just getting started. Back home I was excited to whip up little organic veggie delights in my nutribullet and freeze them in tiny…

Our week in Sintra, Portugal…

Recently we enjoyed a week staying in the beautiful world heritage listed Cultural Landscape of Sintra. We went there as part of my research and I found it the perfect place to combine work and play for me. We flew direct from Stockholm to Lisbon and were greeted at the airport by a shuttle to our…

Our week in Sweden…

This post is a little late but as I’ve been doing so much research in the last two weeks I haven’t really had a chance to sit down and consolidate. We recently spent a week in Sweden as part of our holiday and also for my research. I’m writing a case study on the Decorated…

Our month in Paris…

Tonight as I start writing this post, it is our last night in Paris. I’m filled with a curious mix of happiness that we’ve had so much time here and sadness that it’s already time to leave. I’ve always wanted to live in Paris and figured that this month would be a good tester to see…

A day in the Marais and a trip to the Cat Cafe!

Yesterday we did one of my favourite things to do in Paris. We spent the day wandering around the Marais. We are staying in the Marais in the 2nd Arrondissement of Paris. It is probably one of my favourite areas of Paris and I’ve made a concerted effort to stay here the last few times…

Tips for going sightseeing with Baby…

We have been travelling now for about 6 weeks and so far so good. Sleep is difficult but I think it would be whether we were travelling or at home. In fact the best thing about bad sleep while travelling is that there are two of us all the time. This means that if there…

Our first week in Paris!

Hello! Bonjour from Paris! We have been here one week now as the title of this post suggests and I couldn’t be happier to be writing it – except if that didn’t mean that we were one week down on our stay here already. I love Paris. I have from my very first visit. Surprisingly…

Our month in London!

I can’t believe how fast this time has gone. Our stay in London is nearly at an end. This was something that I’ve been looking forward to for a really long time. I’ve always wanted to live overseas and given that our jobs and house are in Australia and things are really good in that…

Reservation for 1: London edition.

Today I took my first me-time outing in London doing something that would have been par for the course for pre-baby moi. Today though, it was like a trip to the moon and back. The Husband has had a few days out including a couple of trips to the pub and a day at the…

Our first week in London! – and baby jetlag…

We have now been on our big adventure for just over a week and I still can’t believe that we are here. The Husband and I talked about taking this big trip before I even got pregnant and now to actually be on it is crazy! But here we are in London, thousands of kilometres…
