Hi, I am Lexie and I am ‘the scottish Lass abroad’.

I have always loved travelling, but decided to take my love for holidays to the next level and move abroad.

I decided on Italy, where I lived very happily for 6 years. I am now moving to Norway and I am SUPER excited for the next adventure.

I decided to create this blog to keep a record of the places I’ve been, the things I have seen and to share some of the fun info I have learned with others.

The world is a huge place, and I can’t wait to keep exploring.
