What's the best part about raising a family in the European Union?
I love the sheer diversity of Europe. It's food, language and culture. It is a real melting pot. You can travel by plane literally for an hour or two and literally experience a whole different world.
What's a great destination for a family vacation in Europe?
Yorkshire, where we live, is a fantastic place to come for a holiday.
We are lucky to have some of the most beautiful, natural scenery anywhere in the UK, as well as a wealth of activities and attractions for all the family.
In particular visit Saddleworth. Experience the internationally famous band contest, go for a walk across the moors accompanied by Llama or donkey, try our local food and ales in a lovely country inn, buy crafts and artworks to take back home. There really is something for everyone.
What's the biggest misconception people have about raising a family in the European Union?
I think that people look at the the EU as a whole but it is really is very diverse. In terms of how people raise a family there are many different styles across the EU and children s health and life chances vary greatly depending where they are raised. We are very far from being a homogeneous mass.
