Waving the flag of Britishness!
Waving the flag of Britishness!




This will be a lifestyle expat travel blog about culture, history, travels around the world, Europe, and being British in Berlin.

It will focus on a British girl from Manchester living in Berlin with her German husband and her half British – half German son, her promotion of British-German life, culture, history, literature, theatre, style, Europe, travels around the world, what she does in normal every day life and where she goes.

Victoria used to live in the Czech Republic and worked as the Regional Project Manager starting up an educational business in both Prague (the Czech Republic) and Bratislava (Slovakia). This might have been the reason she was asked to take up the task of consultant coaching and training and also as a result of the business acumen she obtained as a senior education consultant and head-hunter in the UK, which eventually led to the previous position of school headship and management in Berlin.

As an ex-school head and manager at the Wall Street Institute, she was responsible for opening up two schools in Berlin as well as school-based teaching, setting up, running and organising personal development and motivational workshops and career change seminars through corporate teaching in industrial, business and governmental establishments.

Until October 31st, 2016, Victoria was a corporate inter-cultural life coach, educational English language trainer and teacher, at the Wall Street English / WSI Education GmbH / Member of Pearson Group Corporation, in Germany.

As of November 1st, 2016, Victoria started a new job as the Vice-School Principal & Corporate English Manager of a German organisation in Berlin! She will be responsible for school management, education management, increasing brand development and creating new clientele.

She will also be responsible for generating new business, focusing and expanding the business of education and international languages, English Language consultant coaching and training, and taking the lead in English-speaking business in Germany!

Victoria has a Master of Arts (M.A.) in Education – Leadership and Management (University of Chester – England) and also works as an International Social Media Lifestyle & Travel Blogger, as well as being the Editor in Chief of this highly successful website!

Over the years Victoria has travelled far and wide and in 2016, she went to 10 countries!

She’s not a multi-millionaire. Neither is her husband!

She didn’t win the lottery.

She didn’t quit her job.

She didn’t change her lifestyle.

She didn’t throw her one and only child into boarding school.

She didn’t re-locate to a warmer (cheaper) climate.

She didn’t sell her stuff!

You don’t have to do anything drastic if you want to afford a life of travel. You don’t have to choose between having it all and having nothing at all, and you definitely don’t have to quit your lifestyle!

Her blog puts a focus on Berlin, Britain and Europe, her love of culture, history, literature, theatre, style, the English Language and travels around the world.

She’s living a life of both style and travel. Subscribe and read her blog, and find out how she did it.

If she can do it. So can you.

  1. Happy hump day! Sorry I’ve been out of touch; I am back in action again (I bet you know how that is). Stay tuned for more regular postings! I’d love it if you could tell me what you’d like to see more of: travel, bucket list, pilot-wife-life, lifestyle, yoga, or turquoise inspiration (or all of the above, lol)!
