The answer to the dreaded question

14 January, 2016
It's a worry that when I asked my parents the question 'please can you give me a rundown of where we lived when I was a child, that they are left scratching their heads. It was almost a struggle, due to fading memories, mostly!

Here it is, a list of the moves I have made in my lifetime. During my childhood, I grew up across 10 countries. We ping-ponged amongst some of them, namely Spain, Egypt, Canada and the UK.
