About me


Welcome! I’m Nicola and a British expat living upside down in Australia.  When I emigrated five years ago I had no idea of the journey I was about to embark on. For not only did my location change but the highs and lows, a natural part of life but which can be particularly intense as an expat, were a catalyst for personal growth and self-discovery.


I began writing my blog as a means to delve into the confusing emotions I often felt living so far from home and to develop my writing skills simultaneously; something which I enjoy immensely. My posts cover a range of topics including living away from home, personal growth and the things in life that leave us feeling, or are in themselves, upside down.
