I always write about things here at Irish Pub Prague that are either close to my hear and happening in my life.
Last month we finally moved into our dream home, it’s only a couple of miles from the old place in Cardiff but it’s bigger, quieter and set in truly stunning surroundings.
I’d like to give a quick shout out to the boys at Cardiff removals who did a truly excellent job.
So, in this blog post I’m going to cover some quick tips and tricks that can help keep you organised both before, after and during your move.
