Breakfast Swiss dolce vita style at @villaorselina  in Locarno 🌞🌴finally writing a full blog post about this magical place ✨ #jmtsswissplaces  #villaorselina 

One month of biking my way around Zürich and I’m wondering how I did without before!! Somehow having a bike here and slowly knowing my way around all the little streets and quick ways of getting to my favorite places (ex. Badi) makes me feel more like a local 🤗

Always glued to the window when traveling by train 🤗

Glued to the window also when flying above Switzerland ✈️🙋🏼‍♀️ this was on tonight’s flight from Barcelona back to Zurich :) fluffy cloudy video version in Stories ☁️☁️☁️

Back on the blog with a full post about this vacation paradise @villaorselina  and the Locarno region 🌴😍🌞 (link in bio) #villaorselina  #locarno 

Trying new cultural activities in the city ✨ @lichtmuseum  is doing an immersive art show where works by famous Swiss artists are animated and projected in the big hall in a kind of play of light and music (until Sept 19!) and it’s a pretty cool way to spend the hour 🔮

The second place I grew up was at the beach. Sometimes at night I could hear the waves from the ocean. Today its August and maybe some of you will know, getting the children back to school can be sometimes a tough job. Especially with teenagers who enjoyed in #Florida  almost three months their summer vacation. Tonight after a looong day as an Expatmom I went to the beach in #fortlauderdale . Not to go swimming... just to get out of the house, no to hear „Maaamaaaaa!?“ I only wanted to hear the familiar sound of the waves, so I took a blanket, my water and my purse with me and drove to the beach! 🏖 Thank you to the #lifeguard  to let the #beach  looking #safe  and beautiful, while i was listening to sound enjoyed the salty smell and the soft breeze in the humid summer of Florida. I was watching the horizon at the beach... knowing this is east and a next day is awaiting to rise... 🌅 What do you do after a looong day to relax? . . . . .

{A DAY IN LIFE} . 16th August : Surpriiiiiise ! . Today Anthony went back to London (on an epic journey with a missed train at the beginning). We’re staying for 2 more days and tonight, it’s the surprise birthday party of Sandra, my best friend and Léandre’s godmother. . We had a great time. Everyone was thoughtful to Léandre, who danced all night long. . I always feel so powerful when I dare to go to events or places that are demanding with a kid and that everything goes right. . Mumazing with superkid ! #expat  #expatmom  #family  #holidays  #backinfrance  #surprise  #surprisebirthday  #surprisebirthdayparty  #25yearsold  #dancingthroughthenight 

{A DAY IN LIFE} . 15th August : Flashback ! . A day out of time, at my grandparents summer house in the mountains. . It was so great to bring Léandre here for the first time, see him experience things, colours, places, smells that are still in my mind years after and that will remain in my heart forever. . And seeing him play with my grandparents … it’s their first great-grandchild 💛 #expat  #expatmom  #expatfamily  #love  #family  #grandparents  #childhoodmemories  #memories 

{A DAY IN LIFE} . 14th August : When the cars are asleep, mouses are dancing ! 🐁 . After an afternoon exploring our favorite syrup factory, as soon as we put Léandre to bed, we fled to a fun fair in the city center ! . Just Anthony, my best friend Sandra and me, ending the night with a drink in a bar. (Because, again, ou can drink alcohol while breastfeeding ! Your alcohol rate is the same in your milk as it is in your blood 😉) #expat  #expatmom  #holidays  #backinfrance  #bestfriend  #nightout  #nightwithoutkids  #funfair

THE POWER OF LANGUAGE • 💬 Selma • In the early 1950´s my grandparents moved from the Netherlands to Singapore as expats. 🚢🎋🧳🌅🐅They lived in Singapore and Papua New Guinea for about 10 years, where my mother and her older brother both grew up. Expat life 70 years ago was completely different compared to expat life today. But something that my grandfather often said – and that I have taken to heart – still counts: “taal is macht”, or “the power of language”. 💬📖📝 No matter where your live or travel, life is easier when you speak the local language. Having spent time in the UK in the past weeks really helped our boys to freshen up their English, and I love to see them being able to interact with kids on playgrounds in three different languages. 🇾🇪🇩🇪🇬🇧😍 The boys being multilingual came in handy at the beautiful Roman Baths in Bath yesterday as well – they loved the audio tour that was offered in English and German only. What a pity if they would have had to miss that. Can you relate? Where did you experience the “power of language”?

But for me Luxury ✨ is also in the list of Associations! Just look at this Lamborghini! If you’re in the city center you’ll see several in a row! 🐎 . And what is your List?

Kokanee Creek Park creo que hasta ahora se ha llevado nuestras caras de asombro más grandes en estos 4 meses. Poder ver a los salmones nadar contra la corriente, y hasta hacerle barra a los más pequeñitos que parece que no tienen como avanzar, ha sido una experiencia increíble e inolvidable. En la foto, Mapi estaba caminando por el puente y en la mano tiene una postal que hasta ahora tiene cerca porque le encanta 😊. . . . #explorenature  #nature  #nelsonbc  #kootenays  #kootenaylife  #kootrocks  #canada  #expat  #expatlife  #expatfamily  #family  #actividadesconniños  #actividadesenfamilia  #funwithkids  #ACLMeVoyACasar

Cute beings around me light up my day! Do you ask yourself why you have a happy day? I often wonder why when my day is happy because I know it's a privilege. I don't ask myself why my day is bad when it is because it's like a privilege too. A day is just a day, having a bad day doesn't differ from having a good day because having a day to myself is being alive for another day, and it's a privilege!

This was the view from the steps of St. Paul’s Cathedral in London, just AFTER we had gone inside to have a look around, and just BEFORE I fell down the steps of St. Paul’s Cathedral in London! 🥴 . Nothing to see here, people! Move it along. . What? I’m SUPER graceful. Let this serve as a warning never to snap pictures whilst going down steps! Are you listening, kids? . Have you ever taken a tumble in a foreign country, or just anywhere super public? No? Just me then.

Posted @withrepost  • @tourismarta  In the past three weeks I traveled more than 2.000 miles (3.200 km). I spend so much time analyzing tourists’ behaviors that sometimes I forget how amazing it is to be a tourist myself. This trip taught me, once again, how to appreciate and respect local cultures in all their complexity. And that environmental sustainability has to be one of our first priorities when we travel. With all those memories in mind, I’m ready and excited for the beginning of the new academic year. Never stop exploring. Never stop respecting. ***Tagga @italianwomenusa  oppure usa l’hastag #italianwomenusa  per essere inserita nel feed e nelle Stories *** *Grazie mille per il tag!* #expat  #expatlife  #expatliving  #expatfamily  #expatwoman  #donneexpat  #expatblogger  #expatexplore  #expatmom  #expatlifestyle  #expatwomen  #italianusa  #italiangirl  #italianinfluencer  #italianiallestero  #italianinelmondo  #italianexpat  #phdlife  #heritage

Variety is a spice of life 🔆 . As a mother , I portray distinctive roles and emotions. The characterization of a Mother’s emotions depends upon situations and situation depends upon emotions😂. It’s a wise decision to understand own emotions and react effectively. ——————————————————— . . My definition of expression is quite funny and reactive . I only hide my emotions where they are needed to be. Always express yourself because sometimes it’s good to tell people about how you feel, behave , react over certain things. There are NO SECRETS to lead a happy life but very little is needed to live it and i.e BE YOURSELF AND EXPRESS OFTEN. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ . As it’s said variety is spice of life I find this phrase so apt. Sometimes it’s needed to change yourself to fit into a situation. Diversity of deportment not only makes life interesting but lively. We all modulate with time , but a good change is the key ingredient for a blissful journey of togetherness. Embracing a change is sometimes good but it’s hard to accept it . I don’t recommend to transfigure a personality or identity but variety in life is to come out of your rut. Power is in your hand to shape a life . 💢💢💢💢💢💢💢💢💢💢💢💢💢 . Recognize yourself, Do the things that makes you happy or crazy . Accept the change to know your strengths. ❇️ 🔆🔆🔆🔆🔆🔆🔆🔆🔆🔆🔆🔆🔆🔆 . How many of you agree with me ??

I am a restless soul. Always have been. My mom calls me “gitana” a result of my gypsy tendencies. Moving around is what I do comfortably, like it’s my job (how can I make it my job?!🤔)! Aside from the house I grew up in, I’ve not lived in one home for more than 4 years. Today marks our 1st year in the house we built here in San Miguel de Allende. If you told me while we lived in Oakland that we’d up and move to a small colonial town in Mexico and sign off on building a home from foundation up, I’d have said you’re loca 🤪. But, here we are. And, with a damn cute dog to boot! I don’t know where the wind will take me next but I sure am appreciative of our home. 👉🏼If you’re visiting San Miguel and/or are curious about making it your home OR home away from home, I’d be happy to chat with you. ••••• #sanmigueldeallende  #sma  #mexico  #casa  #newhome  #housebuild  #construction  #livingroomdecor  #livingroom  #interiores  #interiordesign  #interiordesigner  #expatlife  #expat  #chocolatelab  #rescuedog  #fireplace  #travel  #gypsy  #bohostyle  #travellover

Working from home...something I’m always jealous of tbh 😬 I’m on my “summer” break as a teacher but still going to work most days in some form or another 🤓 Today I made a point of staying home all day albeit doing plenty of work from home, but mostly it felt like playing hooky 😇 When was the last time you worked from home or maybe just played hooky if your job doesn’t allow working from home option?
