singapore tales Hi im Bridget, a 40 something wife and mother from the UK, I have been living in Singapore since March 2013.

1. Why did you move abroad?

Hubby got offered the opportunity to work in Singapore and with the kids now grown up it was the perfect time in our lives to make the move. Any how with various children either not moving out and one or another appearing on the doorstep, it didn’t look like they were all going to leave home at the same time, so us parents had to “leave home”.


From USA to Australia to South Korea: American Abroad

an american abroad seoul I'm Laura and I’m fascinated by the world. I’m fascinated by the people in it and their cultures and religions and definitely by their food. I could happily eat my way around the world, especially if there is cheese and red wine and dark beer involved. I’m in awe of how the more I see, the more I find there is to see.

1. Why did you move abroad?
After graduating from college in 2010, my boyfriend and I headed off for what we thought would be a whirlwind year of travel. We started in New Zealand and accidentally stayed for a whole year. That year in New Zealand opened up our eyes to all of the options we had for traveling and living around the world. So, we headed to Australia where we enjoyed another two years. After three years of living in English speaking countries, we decided we wanted to get out of our comfort zones. Thus, the idea of moving to South Korea was born.

Many reasons, some of them rather complicated. I moved for love, the delicious food, the language, the scenery, the chance to follow my dream and do something I truly enjoy doing, which is teaching English.

From France to Mumbai: Indian Samourai

This talented blogger presents her interview in both English & French! Read her English interview first, with the French interview below.

Indian Samourai IndianSamourai, I am French and I live in Mumbai, India

1. Why did you move abroad?
When I finished my business school in France, I was quite clueless about what to do with my life and what profession to choose. So I considered the entire vast world and any kind of job (almost) as an option… It just made the search more complicated as on every search engine you have to choose criteria.

So on one hand I looked for a job in consulting – and I must say I went to the first interviews without a clue of what we were talking about. It took a recruiter (God bless him) to tell me I wouldn’t be happy in SAP consulting to actually find out what it was and run away! But back then it seemed to me like a field with a lot of options and most business school students were applying for it. And on the other hand I registered for a programme organized by the French government to encourage companies to send young active people abroad. So I just had to select countries (mostly in South America as I had traveled there and had a lot of friends), see the jobs offered and apply. Problem was, there were not so many offers…


From Los Angeles to South Korea: Seoul Tapper

06 January, 2014 08:51  Erin Erin

seoul trapper My birth name would be Danielle, but I tend to respond to any variation of Dani, Schaeff, D, Jew… that is being shouted in my direction. I’m an angel from that city in Southern California, who now calls Seoul, South Korea my second home, and I love to document all the weird, the beautiful and the cute I witness along the way. I’m also a tap dancer, that’s where the tapper in seoultapper comes from!

1. Why did you move abroad?
Ever since my family took our first overseas trip to Paris when I was in 4th grade, I’ve always wanted to live in another country. I was in love with the massive statues that stood in the middle of major streets, and the culture that I was able to sink in through my young eyes.



From Halifax to Seoul: The Asian Persuasion

05 December, 2013 09:00  Erin Erin

seoul asian persuasion My name is Michael Johnstone. I’m from Halifax, Nova Scotia, which is a small, sleepy city on the eastern coast of Canada. I’m currently living in Seoul, South Korea. What started out as a one-year break from western life has now turned into three, and counting. I’m addicted to Asia.

1. Why did you move abroad?
I remember watching a television documentary about English teachers in Japan and thinking that it was something I wanted to do. As I did more research, I ended up pretty close; Korea offers a lot for those who want to teach. Competitive wages and free housing are hard to argue with!


From the Philippines to Singapore: Pink and Mints

Singapore pink mintsHey there!  My name is Ays, I’m from the Philippines and I’ve been living and working in Singapore for more than seven years. My blog is called Pink and Mints, named after two of my favorite things in the world. I write about my experiences here in the Lion City, my hobbies, and other things close to my heart.

1. Why did you move abroad?
Back in 2005, there was a huge demand for people skilled in this particular software, so there was a wave of personnel leaving my previous employer, most of them going to Singapore. I was contacted by a headhunter, and I thought long and hard about this big move. The pros outweighed the cons, so I packed my bags, left the Philippines and moved to the Lion City in February 2006.
