From a tale of romance comes the parenting and lifestyle blog Mum & Mor – Sarah moved to Denmark from the UK to join her long-distance boyfriend, and soon after came their daughter. From her humorous take on parenting to her insights on life in Denmark (including learning the language), Sarah's blog makes for a good read for anyone that is considering a move to Denmark or any parents to young children.

Dare to Done

This blog comes from an Aussie family in Scotland with mum, dad and the family's eldest of two sons writing posts. The Dare to Done family brought their can-do attitude to Scotland via the UK's Ancestry Visa, which allows commonwealth citizens with UK-born grandparents to move to the UK. In their sincere and genuine posts, they document how they are adapting to life and Scotland, and give a great insight to any families with older children looking to move abroad. So, if you also feel nomadic, and you see travelling as a mean to grow and open your mind, you may have just made some new friends.
