Travels around the world on the sofa

We've spent the last 10 years abroad with our sofa, we left the UK with it in January 2010, we also took 2 of our 5 children with us. When we left South Africa in December 2014 we no longer had children living at home, we now had a cat and a dog and along with our sofa we moved to Dubai.

The sofa is now back in the UK along with the cat and the dog.

UK - Morning after New Years Eve

South Africa 1st House

South Africa 2nd House

Dubai 1st House

Dubai 2nd House

UK Back where it started

That's 5 moves in 10 years and 3 countries and one well travelled sofa.


  1. Isn't it expensive to move a big piece of furniture around the world? I like the bright color. #MySundayPhoto

    1. it cost £2,500 for the container which included all our worldy goods and the contents of a 4 bed house, cheaper than buying everything new

  2. That is a very well traveled couch!!

  3. Love the colour. The sofa has travelled more than most people

    Thank you for linking up to #MySundayPhoto

    1. Oh for sure, and twice as far as the cat and dog lol

  4. Wow! That sofa has travelled more than I have. lol

  5. Wow, that is a very well travelled sofa! It must be good quality to have survived all those years and those moves.
