BritMums Expat Round-up: Marathon, toddler or goat?

expats roundup of blog posts UKRunning a marathon, eating out with a toddler or milking a goat? Which one would you choose?

Last few weeks have been very busy for me, and thanks to moving and not having any Internet at home, I am writing this month’s post only now. Moving is very stressful, and I have not even had a chance to blog about it properly yet, but most importantly we are happy in our new place, and love the friendly neighbourhood so much.

Just over two weeks ago I flew back home to run the Prague marathon. Isabelle and my husband joined me along with my family and friends who supported me on that day. It was a fantastic experience running back home, and I was very pleased to beat my time from London Virgin marathon in 2011. Now I am planning another marathon, looking for another European destination. Any tips?

I love going to restaurants with my family, but have to say that I had to learn the hard way before I figured out how to make this experience a nice one. If you like eating meals outside your home, you will appreciate these easy 5 keys to enjoy eating out with small children.

Would you like to know more about other Expat bloggers and their journey through expatriation? I loved the infographic at A Mum in London’s blog. Check it out, some very interesting facts!

Are you a fan of goat’s cheese? I am, and found reading about goats and milking the goat very entertaining.

Reading about sunny Italian Riviera makes me jealous after a week of rain here in London, but what else to expect from any half-term holiday weather forecast? I have not been to Italy for years, and after reading this post I feel like that should be our next family holiday destination.

The next post that definitely should not be missing in this month’s round-up is about having the immigration visa to Australia granted. Huge congratulations! I spent 5 wonderful years in Sydney, and was planning to stay there with daddy before we decided to move back to Europe, so I know how hard it is to get this visa or to be honest, any visa to stay in the wonderland Land of Oz. I think some countries could really learn from their immigration process. Hope the journey of Tales of a Twin Mum will be a great one.

Would you like to know what it’s like to be on telly in Dubai? Then read you must read all about it in this Expat Baby Adventures post.

Are you British? Does having a British passport make you British? Some very interesting questions, aren’t they? Well, even after spending 8 years in the UK, I have not applied for a British passport, and sadly the main reason is the fee, and also the fact I have never needed one as travelling around Europe on my Czech passport is fine. I would like to get one in the future, but I do not think that would make me feel British at all. I will always stay Czech in my heart despite not living there for more than 15 years.
