How to survive three moves in five months

Why have it simple when you can make it complex?

We knew we were moving to Estonia this autumn and had planned for it since late 2018 but it wasn’t one simple move, it had so many facets and we made it even more complicated when we decided to sell our apartment in London and buy another one there instead. So I’ve been packing and unpacking since June. Continue reading “How to survive three moves in five months”

Top 10 favourite things to do in London with my daughter

Our daughter spent her first two years in London and she won’t have any memory of it but at least she will have plethora of photos and videos to enjoy when she’s older. After just having moved from London to Tallinn I’ve already begun reminiscing about my time spent with her there and I thought I’d make a list of things we liked to do or places to go.

Holiday during ‘Leap 7’

As I’ve written before I’m a keen follower of the Wonder Weeks  and as it happened, our last trip to Estonia was during our baby’s mental leap 7. I’ve stopped obsessing about how her sleep might change (read: get worse) and instead pay more attention to her new developing skills. Leap 7 is shortly described as follows:

Mental leap 7 – The world of sequences

If you are alert for newly developing skills in your baby, at around 46 weeks you may suddenly notice her doing things that are quite the opposite. She will begin, for the first time, to try to put things together. Continue reading “Holiday during ‘Leap 7’”

Family holiday in Lanzarote

Back in April we went to Lanzarote. Our little girl is clocking in those air miles like no other. On her first flight to Tallinn in October she was given British Airways travel log book and we record her miles by letting the captain fill it out during the flight. It will be a nice keepsake for her one day. Continue reading “Family holiday in Lanzarote”

A trip to South Italy 🇮🇹 

A couple of weeks ago we took our bump on her first plane journey at 25 weeks! I have some apologising to do later as we travelled with Ryanair… Luckily only almost three hours later we landed in Bari, Calabria, and could forget about the cramped conditions. Another two hours later, by car this time, we arrived near Mandatoriccio in Calabria – our weekend respite. Continue reading “A trip to South Italy 🇮🇹 “

Lanzarote – the island of black sand and so much more!

I finally got around to organising all the holiday photos on my phone! About a month ago we had the pleasure of staying at our friends’ villa in Playa Blanca, Lanzarote. In return, Marc did some bump and family photography ;).

It was such an amazing week off! I had no idea Lanzarote had that kind of scenery. From black volcanic rock fields, black sand, red mountains to bright blue ocean and golden yellow beaches. This island has colour and such diversity: volcanoes (Timanfaya National Park), vineyards placed on the foot of the black hills, salt mines (Janubio), irresistible sunsets, caves (Cueva de los Verdes), cute fishing villages dotted around and some of the most scenic beaches I’ve ever seen (Playa de Papagayo).
