I’ll start with me, Suzy McCullough, the main author on this website. I’m a repatriated expat, Mummy to Jamie, wife to Mark and a lover of travel and days out. We lived in France for 14 years and returned to the UK in 2014. I have a degree in graphic design that also involved photography. I strive to always take the best photo I can to preserve our memories. Videos/Vlogs of our holidays are another creative aspect that I love to make. This love came from my A Level in media studies.
We live in the East Riding of Yorkshire and I have widely covered the east midlands and now we are starting on Yorkshire. With a team of writers by my side we can cover many attractions, theatre and accommodation across the UK. Please do get in touch if you would like to collaborate.
I am blessed with a family that also love to travel and before I had even met my husband Mark I’d already been abroad countless times. Spain, France, Portugal, Switzerland, Austria, France, Italy, Menorca, USA (Boston and Florida), Malta, Amsterdam, Turkey. Since we’ve been together we’ve been to many of these countries again plus Morocco, Sri Lanka, Tenerife, China, Greek islands, Tunisia, Gran Canaria, Tenerife. Not to mention having lived 14 of our 17 years together in France. 1 year in Scotland and the other 3 in 4 different places in England.
I also love to write and eat out.
The photos above are from our 2008 honeymoon to Sri Lanka. I can’t believe we still haven’t returned. We talk about it every year. It’s such a beautiful country.
The little person in our lives
The little person in our family and our miracle is Jamie who is 5 years old. 5 years old!? Why do they have to grow up so fast? He has our lust for travel and thrives off days out. He learns so much and is always in a happy place when we are out. So far he has travelled overseas with us to Corfu, Gran Canaria, Venice, Florida and Lapland. We will soon be adding Iceland to this list. Not to mention the fact he was born in France and lived there for 18 months.
As well as holidaying abroad and weekend hotel and glamping breaks in the UK we also love our tourer caravan. We bought it a few years ago and we go away with it as much as we can. There are so many products around nowadays to make a caravan holiday much easier than it used to be.
Here’s a family photo from our holiday to Gran Canaria in 2017. We are desperate to show Jamie the world and to take him to many places we’ve already been to plus many none of us have been to before.
Our Family Bucket List
Why a bucket list for a family? If you haven’t already seen on here our bucket list was started by me in 2016 when we found out that my Dad had an incurable cancer. It focused my mind and I spent many an hour researching and putting the list together. I prefer to look upon it as a life list with goals, ideas and inspirations. Hopefully, I will inspire people and give others ideas for days out, adventures, entertainment and holidays. Each year I will set us some goals for the year ahead from the 450+ long list. In 2019 we are attempting #80dayschallenge where we are aiming to have at least 80 days out in one year, in the UK and overseas.
The rest of the bucketlisters
Mum also comes on a lot of our adventures. Jamie adores her and we love our days out and holidays with her. And of course there’s my husband Mark who although very devoted to his work comes away with us as much as possible.
Anyway that’s a little about us. If you are a PR, brand, tourist attraction, hotel or holiday park/resort etc and you’d like to work with us please click to view ‘PR & Media’ in the top menu. I pay great attention to detail and I am a total perfectionist. I spend a lot of time on my posts, social media promotion and videos.
