Se7en Countries I’ve Lived in and Love
I was born in England. The weather’s terrible and I could never live there again but I love to visit for the old stone buildings, the country walks, the funny people and the endless cups of tea!
As a child we often holidayed in France and I’ve lived there three times in Provence, Bordeaux and Paris. I love speaking French and eating all the fresh fruit and vegetables like rock melon and tomatoes which somehow taste better in France than anywhere else.
I met my husband in Egypt in the Sinai by the Red Sea which is gorgeous but it’s not the real Egypt. I love the hustle and bustle of Cairo and Aswan, the dry heat and the rich history.
I spent a year teaching here and am always so sad to read about how the country and it’s people are suffering now in the hands of Mugabe. I’ll always remember the great music, dancing, textiles and amazing wildlife. I’d love to return one day.
5. New Zealand
New Zealanders are incredibly unpretentious and laid back and that’s a huge part of the appeal. New Zealand is fun to explore in a camper van and the scenery changes completely in just a few hours from wild beaches to live volcanoes then desert and rain forest.
6. Costa Rica
Nothing beats living in a place where monkeys, sloths and toucans come to visit you in your garden. It’s an incredible privilege and I hope that biodiversity can be maintained and development controlled so humans and animals can live and flourish together.
Because it’s home now and the Sunshine Coast in Queensland where I live (in the picture) has stunning beaches and good schools which is the perfect combination for me and my family right now.
