My name is Amy and about a month ago my surname unexpectedly changed to Benbow. This is because we eloped. To Denmark. We eloped because we wanted to get married before we moved to Dubai. Where we are emigrating in about two weeks.

All evidence above to contrary, I do not do things like this.

If you’d have asked 16 year old me if she ever thought she’d elope and then move to a desert, two things would have happened – she’d of turned bright red because her shyness still kills her and then, once composed, she would have laughed at you.

This blog is a space for me to be honest about an adventure I’d never thought I’d have.
