The Lion City Bucket List: Leaving the Lion City

In 2011 we moved to Geneva from London as expats. We were never the type of people with feet itching to live overseas. We didn’t have a hankering to travel the world and we had no idea what the next few years would have to offer. After two years in Switzerland, we had visited many places but there were always those ones that we kept saying we will get around to visiting. Between signing the new contract for Singapore and actually leaving Switzerland we had just 6 weeks and with half of that time spent travelling back to Blighty for wedding dress shopping and other family commitments, we just had to leave behind those unexplored sights.

Moving to Singapore we didn’t want this to happen again and made extra effort to see as much as possible but having spent just 13 months here and with only 7 weeks between our up coming move to Brisbane being confirmed and my Husbands start date there, it’s inevitable that some places will go unvisited. Over the next few weeks I’ll be posting about the places we get the chance to knock off our list. I hope you enjoy reading about our adventures!

We’re off to see the wizard!

Ok, we’re not off to see the wizard at all but we had news last week that our Australian visa’s have been approved and in less than two months time, we will be British expats in Brisbane!

This has been my life now for a few years. We move somewhere, we settle, make friends get into a routine and before we know it along come the company by bestie (hubby!) works for and they decide he is needed elsewhere, normally another continent. We aren’t as experienced as some expats, so far, our international addresses have been Geneva and Singapore but I’m only just in my late twenties so who knows what can happen. I’m just lucky it’s with my bestie!

I hope you follow to keep updated on my future posts. Not only will I be writing about how our move progresses, but I have some other topics in the pipeline including my Singapore bucket list and some easy, how to’s on how I have been making my own Thank You notes for our wedding guests.

For now, from my poolside sunbed in Phuket (I am one lucky lady!) I bid you adieu!!
