Ria Brown

Born in SE Asia, raised in the UK and now living in Valencia with my children and husband. A WAHM juggling everything from school runs, running a business and trying to remember to feed the cat.
 

I have blogged for about 9 years, but have always stopped/ started then I finally reached the point when I realised that having three children and work doesn’t make much time for blogging.

Owning our own business and being lucky enough to work wherever we want, in 2009 we started considering relocating our family abroad.  Having had enough of the rat race and the weather, we researched many countries from Greece, France, Italy, US and even the Philippines.

With many factors to consider such as house prices, education, lifestyle, climate, distance etc. So after endless headaches, endless lists of comparisons,  in 2011 we decided that Valencia would be the perfect location. Being only 2 hours flight to the UK, choices of International Schools and most of all we found it to be a family friendly place to live with its parks, amazing beaches, mountain bike trails, shopping,  many colourful fiestas and cultural events that take place all through the year.

In 2012 we up sticks and transplanted ourselves in the campo surrounded by orange and olive groves. Ideal life right? Well, this is where my blog comes in. Sharing my notes, thoughts and observations from our familys point of view and what it is really like living the unique cultural lifestyle in Valencia, Spain.
