Everything we ate there was incredible, and everything that grows there was thriving. It almost felt like we had visited the place where weather was made; we…

Well, we’re moving for Alessandro’s job – and as my German is not yet at waitress level I’ll be working on freelance and designs full time. I’m really…

  • So it’s the end of my last full calendar month in the UK and the beginning of my last few weeks in work – the ‘new me’ is all trained up, and things are really starting to get into gear for the big move. In just under two months I’ll be moving from  Manchester, UK to the small town of Villach in southern Austria, along with my boyfriend – the…
