Welcome to ispyprettyplaces! I’m a teacher by day and during all those well-deserved holidays and long weekends I try and escape to new and wonderful places. So far in my adult life I have travelled to 31 different countries and lived in 4 of those. My latest move has been from the Middle East to the Far East. I  decided I wanted to have a space to share my experiences on expat life, travels and lifestyle choices.

At ispyprettyplaces you will find thoughts, practical advice and some truthful experiences about life as an expat. What’s more, as an avid traveller, you will also find travel tips, accommodation reviews and hopefully some useful itineraries for those of us that like to travel but have to work within annual leave and family commitments. Focus will be on holidays for the every day traveller (not budget and not luxury).

I also like taking photos, lots of photos and hope to share them with you in this space. Please contact me if you are interested in using any photography found on this website.

Thanks for stopping by!
