2014: An Expat’ Odyssey

By Mummy B.



Of course those who know Daddy B. can guess that the title is not from me, but from him: the movie fan and especially fond of Kubrick.

But as he decided to become the second writer of this blog in 2015 (for now he is acting as technical support, which represents already a lot of work!), I wanted him to leave his mark on the first article of the year.


2014 was an intense year for us. We wanted to start 2015 by remembering all those wonderful times spent together and with our loved ones; all around the world (almost)…

Let’s have a look over these 12 months that won’t be forgotten!
