I'm Emily, a mum of two little's who gave up her job and life in the UK to move to Singapore in August 2016 as a "trailing spouse". I started blogging about the adventure almost as soon as we arrived, with one of my first blog posts's "Independent Dependant" being picked up by HuffPost UK for it's honest portrayal of life as a modern day expat wife.
I'm now pretty settled into a life of suitcases, long haul flights and Asian cultural delights. In fact, I've been bitten by the travel bug and now homeschool my kids which allows us to truly explore SE Asia. My life has done a complete 180 in the last 12 months, and my blog not only reflects that, but it's encouraging other would-be adventurers (with and without kids in tow) to just get out there and enjoy the world.
