European travel and lifestyle
I’ve been asking myself the same question for years.
I was born in Sydney, Australia and moved to a small town outside Madrid, Spain when I was eight years old. If moving once wasn’t enough, my family then moved to Leeds in Northern England in 2007.
My mother is Spanish and my father is English, so aside from having three nationalities, I’ve also lived in all three countries for equal amounts of time.
I’m a full-time editor working in academic publishing.
I get 33 days worth of annual leave, which is higher than the UK standard (25 days). I’m more than aware that it’s a generous amount and it won’t be the same once I change jobs, so I try to make the most of it by travelling as much as possible now.

Not yet. I’ve still got a ton of application forms, telephone calls and interviews to look forward to before that. You can follow the experience in the Moving Abroad series.
My partner Lee and I co-own a Canon 700D that we both use during trips. However, it can get quite heavy if you’re walking around all day. On those occasions, I tend to use my iPhone 6.
I’m currently scoping the market for a smaller digital camera, so any suggestions are welcome!
Europe is a city break dream. Working full-time and only having a few days to explore a city at a time, I love how close yet simultaneously diverse European countries are. It was a very different situation when I lived in Australia – most travelling involved long-haul flights and a significant amount of money. For that reason, being able to access so many countries and cultures in a matter of hours (without breaking the bank) is a dream come true.
Of course I do, but European travel is a better fit for my current budget and lifestyle (aka taking as many trips as possible for the lowest cost).
