IMG_0942Hi! My name’s Yuliya and I’m a mother of two little girls, who are slowly but surely becoming tiny expats. We moved around a lot in the last 10 years or so. I met my husband in London, where we studied together. I moved to UK, when I was 17, from Ukraine and he came there to study, when he was just 12, from Moscow. After 7 year in UK came Hambrug, where our oldest daughter was born and where we lived for about 4 years. When she was 1 year and 5 months old, we relocated to Shanghai and spent a year there. Our next destination was Moscow, a city where we spent two years and had another baby girl. The next time we moved, our second daughter was about 1 year and 3 months. This was in May 2014, when we arrived to a tiny but a very beautiful and cosy town of Pardubice, Czech Republic. The latest relocation happened just before Christmas 2015 – CZ to UK and I am writing now from our home in Warwickshire.

100followersI started this blog in November 2014 and the main reason was to collect here any useful information I could find about living with the kids in Pardubice. As the town was so small, there was not enough information available in English. Hope, my Pardubice Directory section helps any newcomers to feel more at home. You can read about our every day life in Pardubice and travelling around Czech Republic in Expat Life in CZ.

Since then I started posting here some random thoughts, memories of our previous travel, expat experiences and stories about interesting places around the world. Please, read more about my Wanderlust Projects here or search for stories by a country index here. You can also participate in my blogging event ShowYourWorld.
