From South Africa to Mozambique: Travelling Tonito's Adventures

Tonito hukah My name is Tony and I was born (to Portuguese parents) and raised in South Africa. After 18 years in the motherland, I moved to London where I (and my parents) decided would be the best place to become smart (otherwise known as a university education). After living in London for six years (and seeing the sun for a total of 7 days in those 6 years), I decided to move after getting a job offer in Abu Dhabi. A year after arriving in Abu Dhabi, I was posted to Tripoli, Libya until the current revolution meant relocating once more, this time to Beira, Mozambique.

1. Why did you move abroad?
I moved abroad (to London) because my parents and I thought it would be a worthwhile experience to study in London as opposed to going to college in South Africa. It was probably the best decision ever made, as moving from my 20,000 population town to a cosmopolitan city like London, meant growing up very quickly and gave me the opportunity to meet people from places I never even knew existed!

From the UK to Kenya: Africa Expat Wives Club

africa expat wives frances My name is: Africa Expat Wife.  I am originally from UK but am currently living in Kenya, East Africa.  I have been an East Africa resident for the past 12 years now.

1. Why did you move abroad?
I met my husband in England/London but he had spent a good chunk of his childhood on the Kenya coast and was itching to come back.  He managed to line up a job in Tanzania and we moved there two days after our wedding.  The wedding itself was a bit of a giant ‘goodbye’ party – we thought we were coming over for a two or three year posting but still haven’t gone home.  My husband says ‘we’re still on honeymoon’ but 3 children later and after purchasing a house in Nairobi – I’m not so sure.
