Bienvenida a My Life, Mi Vida

Hello and welcome to my expat lifestyle blog about living in both London, UK and Valencia, Spain.

I have been doing this for almost a year now and I thought it would be cool to share my journey so far, and my experiences as I move forward in the next stage of my journey. As well as introducing the world to Valencia through my eyes.

I’m a born and bred London girl but last year (2016) I decided that since I was still single and “untethered” by children or a mortgage at the ripe old age of 34 I might as well take the plunge and do something adventurous and interesting with my life. I studied Spanish in high school but then never used it. I would have loved to have taken a gap year after university and gone to travel South America or something like that, but I never did and I forgot most of my Spanish. So, my first thought upon asking myself “What’s something you always wanted to do but never did?” was – take a career-break to spend 3-6 months in Spain to “become fluent” in Spanish! But as I thought about things more I realised that I could actually just move to Spain… as in really move to Spain. So that’s what I decided to do.

Roll on roughly 18 months and things haven’t exactly worked out to be that simple (when do they ever?), but in a way they have turned out even more interesting. So I hence I am going to share my life, mi vida  – maybe it will help inspire you to realise that even if you can’t just up sticks and move there are still ways to achieve your expat/travel dreams.

  1. This is awesome! I love that you just decided to do a thing and did it. So many people life their lives saying they wish they’d done this and that. Now you don’t have to and that’s so fantastic 🙂 Looking forward to reading more xxx

  2. That’s really cool! Way to take life by the horns. You’re incredibly brave, not many people could just do that. I can’t wait to hear more about your life!
