About me

Location Jeddah, Makkah, Saudi Arabia
Introduction I am a no longer 30 something global soul, a perpetual expat. I was born in the Netherlands to a Dutch/Irish Family. Since then I have lived in Norway, Nigeria, Turkey and Venezuela. I went to school and university in the UK. We decided to have an adventure and took our children and the dog(s) to live abroad, first to Kazakhstan and then to various locations in Malaysia. Our current home is in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. This blog is about how we muddle through daily life as expats and how things have changed from the adventures of my childhood.
Interests Travel and experiencing new cultures, European and Russian History, Geopolitics, Diving, Cooking, Baking.
