This month we head to Europe to talk to globe trotting Mum of one Sasha Romary. I’ve been following Sasha on the old ‘gram for a while now, ever since she sent me an email last year to say she was just about to move to Singapore with a little one and knew approximately zero people here. But, like so many other women in her shoes, she’s more of a trail blazing spouse than a trailing spouse. When she’s not taking pics of her lovely little boy Oliver and super cute pooch Gaspard (I for one very much feel a…

In this installment of The Expat Mama Meets… we head to the Middle East, and to Doha in Qatar to hear from expat mama, blogger and self-confessed travel mad mum Emma Morrell. In Emma’s own words she’s “married to a long suffering (lucky!) travel mad husband and we also have a well travelled dog who we adopted when we lived in the States.

And, with a limit on their time in ‘straya, the family is already…

Fourth in our line up in The Expat Mama meets… mini series, we meet British Doctor, Harriet Stevenson, turned Hong Kong dweller and a fairly recent newcomer to the expat wife life. Another export originally from Merseyside, UK (we’re old school friends) the 28 year old has spent the last ten years living, studying and working in London. As she puts it “Samuel Pepys said when you are tired of London you are tired of life, we weren’t tired of it yet we wanted to see what else was out there“. And so they – her and husband, Jambo –…
