Your interactive guide to living abroad as recommended by local mums | Last updated 9 months ago



"MumAbroad is a great source of information for any mother who finds herself living overseas and in need of relevant information.  Personally, I have found fantastic holiday recommendations on the site and also appeared on their Mums in Business section for Madrid alongside other women who have started their own businesses since moving abroad.  We even held a meeting in Madrid of all the Mums in Business which we opened up to other people and now we run a very successful networking group called International Women in Business Spain off the back of that first initial meeting.  Come and visit us at:

"Virtual networking via Facebook etc. is great...but meeting other women face-to-face, in convivial surroundings and hosted by an organisation like MumAbroad is just the best. Their events attract the most interesting, dynamic and entertaining women from around the Barcelona area. Lots of fun, loads of great connections, good food & wine. A winning formula."
Nadine Astorga, Barcelona Forever Living

"Advertising with MumAbroad has been an invaluable source in finding new clients (mums with babies and young children) and helping with the growth of my business.  I get many new clients in all of my activities that have found out about my centre through the website.  Some mums have joined my activities even before coming to live in Barcelona, thanks to the MumAbroad advertisements. Both Jane and Carrie are very professional and extremely helpful in getting information to potential clients through both their website and facebook. Thank you for your support in helping my business grow."

"I moved my family to Barcelona in 2010 but started the process of researching, making decisions and moving in 2008. MumAbroad was totally invaluable. I have worked and travelled abroad but moving three children of multiple ages was much more complex. I cannot express my gratitude in what I learned about schooling, places to live, health care and the links to local people. All were spot on! It even led (via the forum) to an invite to stay with a family who worked for the same organisation as my husband who helped us tremendously and became great friends. I have also located Marmite, eco nappies and tahini, three hard to track down items when we arrived, provided with an address in my locality by local mum's! It has totally directed us to good times and aided us in the low points. MumAbroad I would hate to have done it without you or be without you! You are the Lonely Planet/Rough Guide equivalent to relocating a family!"

“MumAbroad is invaluable for new arrivals, as well as established families in Spain. It is a rich source of advice, listings, and leisure activities. It is a genuine online community. Our staff room of British teachers loves it!”
