Pete and Em like to do creative things. This blog was about their travels and experiences of living abroad. England did seem weird at times but they also know how hard it rocks. And most of their favourite bands (and writers) have come out of the country.

About Pete

Peter Scobie has nine years of fond memories growing up in Blackheath, London. When he moved back to Canberra, at the age of 10, he had a posh schoolboy English accent which was teased out of him. Unfortunately he does not have one of those little red books of beauty, the EU passport. You can check out other stuff he has done at

About Em

Em Salkild is an Aussie with a British passport – thanks Dad. No matter what she says, she loved living in London. You can check out other things she is doing at

About Daddad is weird

Martin Salkild was born and bred in England, and moved from London to Australia at the age of 25. He has lived in Sydney for over 40 years and has five children (all with dual citizenship – woo), three grandchildren, a lovely wife and a dog called Max.
