Welcome

About….

Hello! I’m Kate, aka roamingmom, a travel obsessed lifestyle blogger and Mom to a boy tribe. 

I’m a Canadian expat who left home 15 years ago and never looked back! I love expat life for the adventure, the people, the diversity, and the challenge of being “away from home”.

The Backstory……

I was born in Toronto, Canada to great parents who never travelled. 

Fifteen years ago, my husband came up with the grand idea we should move to The Bahamas. So we did. In fact, we moved to Grand Bahama Island with our new baby, Aiden and our geriatric dog, Kob. 

Island life was just as you might expect. Paradise. As long as you never went to the grocery store or sat through a hurricane.

We bought a house. We massively renovated said house. We had a couple more babies. Our fur boy passed on. Good friends were made. Roots were laid. A decade flew by.

After more than 10 years of Island bliss – we decide on a “gap year” to Europe. Spain was the logical choice for the language, climate, food and vino…por supesto (of course!)

That “gap year” is going on 4 years.  We’ve had more than a few hiccups…. but it’s all been part of the adventure. And Man – what a wild ride it has been!

I am hooked on España – the culture, the peeps, and the land…..not the offing paperwork but that’s another story. 

Thanks for being here. Life is a journey of perfect imperfections – let’s take it together.  😉
