A hip feet are feeling itchy.

For quite a long time now, my little hip family have been toying with the idea of moving overseas for a temporary period for work reasons. You see, I'm from the UK, daddy hip is from New Zealand, and we currently live in Australia. In marvellous Melbourne to be precise. We really love Melbourne, but whilst our little hips are young, we are possibly thinking of moving our little family somewhere abroad for a while. Crazy...are we?

Hip hubby and I met whilst travelling through South America, and, having worked in marketing at an adventure tour operator for many years, and having studied languages at uni, you could say travel is in my blood. We own 4 passports from different parts of the world (3 of which are mine!), so it clearly all makes sense to utilise them all. We've been in Australia for 10 years...

But where to go? And is it just a case of 'the grass is always greener'? Plus it just so happens that we finally feel very settled where we are and, 2010 has been a year of feeling rather happy at home at last. Strange how we can't feel totally 100% happy with what we have (or can we?) 

Would the 'hips' cope? Would they even notice? Do we really need to move somewhere else just when everything feels so right? Financially, a move could really make us, but do we really NEED to do that? Its a tough decision...

So, I suppose, any thoughts or recommendations anyone has, I would love to hear them.

  1. I think kids are ultra-resilient and would adapt quicker than you and hubby!

    We’ve only been home in Australia a year so we’ll probably hold a little while before we pack up again but the wanderlust is setting in. Our next city was always going to be Istanbul - we still talk about doing it in the next few years.


Thanks for stopping by....We love to hear your hip comments.
