"The MumAbroad events attract the most interesting, dynamic and entertaining women from around the Barcelona area. Lots of fun & loads of great connections"
"I moved my family to Barcelona in 2010 but started the process of researching and making decisions 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. 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 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."
"Before moving to Spain, I wanted to know more about the local school system, international school options and areas to live in with children. You have to get it right and I had many questions and apprehensions and MumAbroad proved an immensely useful site. Once in Spain I started my own company and hooked up with other mums in business through MumAbroad as well. Exchanging ideas with women in my own situation who are foreign mums juggling home life and business has helped on many levels from personal to marketing and networking."
"By embodying the essence of being a foreign mum in a foreign land, MumAbroad Life brings readers insight to familiar scenarios in our new environs. No matter whether we are a mum abroad in Munich, Milan or Madrid, we have a lot in common. How many kisses are we supposed to give and/or receive in our new country? Should we home-school or world-school our children? What is the best way to keep our children cool in the summer? You name it, MumAbroad Life have tackled it providing priceless peer-to-peer advice on every subject under the sun. Want to know why we enjoy our quality of life so much as mums abroad? Step inside this blog to discover why!"
