BritMums Expat Round-up: Spring is in the air!

expats roundup of blog posts UKAs you are reading this post I am probably in the Watford central pool aiming to swim 2.5km (100 lengths) as taking part in the Swimathon and trying to raise £600 for the Team Honk #teamhonkrelay. I was impressed by the support I got on Twitter. So many RTs. If only every RT was £1, I would have reached the target by now easily. If you can spare a few pennies, every little counts. Thank you and here is my donation page. Please sponsor me!

Not being born British means, I still get surprised by things that British people found normal and part of their life. One of my favourite latest finding were the delicious British Scones. You might laugh, but I have never come across them before. If you would like to make them at home from scratch, check out some top tips on The Perfect British Scones by an expat British mama living in Sweden.

You might remember I am originally Czech which means both my girls are raised bilingually, and I love reading posts by fellow bloggers who share their tips and tricks for bilingual families. Thanks to twitter I have come across an Aussie expat who was mentioning her 5 reasons she was glad her children speak English and Italian.

This week was also in the name of birthday celebrations for my younger Olivia who turned 2, and also for Bavarian Sojourn‘s son. I was amazed by some of her birthday cake posts, and stunning photos!

Are you wondering what it’s like living in another language? Then you need to read this!

My breath was taken away by stunning pictures of the white sands in New Mexico. I love travelling and wish I was able to travel much more. Bring on the summer holiday…at least!

Would you believe that living in the Indian Ocean does have its drawbacks?

Living abroad and getting used to the new culture can take a while. Some people never get used to living in a different country and don’t feel there like at home. I loved this post that captured what can happen in 3 year’s time. Wondering what it’s like living in Milan?

The next post in this month’s round-up made me cry. Me and my husband used to live in Sydney for 5 years, and I absolutely loved the lifestyle, the people the country, the beaches, the sunshine, the sea… everything. Then we started thinking about starting a family, and living so far away from our families in the UK and the Czech Republic was not what we went for. Get your tissues ready, and read Why We’re Emigrating: A Letter to My Children.

The last blog post for this month’s expat’s round up is not just another travel blog; it is a blog consisting of pictures only. I was very jealous looking at so many places I have never been. If you need an inspiration for a holiday destination, check it out!

    Thanks very much for featuring my post about why we’re emigrating to Australia. I love this round up – it’s a great way to find out about other families in the same situation as us. Our visa has just been granted at last, so we’re looking forward to our new adventure as soon as we’ve sold our house! xx
