Expat Interviews

From France to Libya: Diary of an Expat From France to Libya: Diary of an Expat

Erin Erin  Date 21 April, 2014 10:21

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

Diary of an expat My name is Jameela I was born in France and I now live In Zawia, Libya after having spent 10 years in England and Wales.

1. Why did you move abroad?
Because I’m a serial expat! More seriously I was looking for better job opportunities and I wanted to leave cold England for a sunny destination. After some time looking here and there Libya found us.

2. How do you make a living?
I’m working as an ESL teacher. The job is easy because you’re pretty much free to teach whatever and however you like, but Libya is a country in a post-war / transition period and things are not always easy.


From England to Ariège: Foothills of France From England to Ariège: Foothills of France

Erin Erin  Date 14 April, 2014 08:09

Foothills of France My name is Nadia Jordan and I am English but have somehow ended up living out here in the little known region of the Ariège in South West France. The Ariège is a beautiful, unspoiled region tucked in the foothills and valleys of the Pyrénées national park but still only an hour from Toulouse, the second fastest growing city in France. I moved here eleven years ago with my husband, a pilot, our three children (now four) and far too many dogs and cats to a house that is and will probably always be, an ongoing project.

1. Why did you move abroad?
Because we could; I was a freelance writer and could work from anywhere as could my husband. Our children were still young enough to adapt to pretty much anything we could throw at them but we knew that, the older they got, the harder it would get to move them. Hence, we decided it was now or never to sell the house and try out a foreign lifestyle for while.


From England to California to Barcelona: Hola Yessica From England to California to Barcelona: Hola Yessica

Erin Erin  Date 07 April, 2014 09:59

hola yessica Hello! I’m Jessica, I’m 25, and I’m originally from England. I grew up in southern California and now I live in beautiful Barcelona, Spain.

1. Why did you move abroad?
I’d studied abroad in Barcelona for a summer and that just wasn’t enough time. I fell completely in love with the city and knew I had to come back. I decided that after graduating college was a pretty good time to get my Barcelona fix in. Two weeks after I got my diploma, I landed here.


From the Ukraine to the USA to the Netherlands: On the Same Page From the Ukraine to the USA to the Netherlands: On the Same Page

Erin Erin  Date 24 March, 2014 10:10

On the Same Page

Hi, I’m Alla! “Where are you from?” is question that I always follow up with “Well, how far back do you want me to go?”  I was born in Ukraine, then when I was 10 my family moved to New York.  I went to college in Illinois and studied abroad in Spain and Italy. A brief stint in California followed, you know, to surf in Malibu, and admire some real cowboys.

This is when I realized that “home” is not about a geographic location, it’s about what you internalize by living there. I now find myself back on the European continent, this time my home is in the green and lush Netherlands living with my husband and our two little boys.  


From Israel to China: Being in Awe From Israel to China: Being in Awe

Erin Erin  Date 10 March, 2014 09:12

Being in Awe We are Gadi and Tun, midlife run-aways from Israel, and we live now in Xian China. We describe our adventures on and inspire readers to travel the world.

1. Why did you move abroad?
We've always liked to travel and examined almost every corner in Israel, visited several countries in Europe, once visited North America, and three times China. Like almost all the people we spend a lot of time to study and work.

Gadi - programmer and worked for five years in a startup, created a company with his friends from zero and they succeeded by considerable efforts of 10 hours a day.

Tun - physicians specialized in children's diseases, often working in the hospital for 26-27 hours.


From Cape Town to the Netherlands: Elizabeth Joss From Cape Town to the Netherlands: Elizabeth Joss

Erin Erin  Date 06 March, 2014 08:06

Elizabeth Joss I’m Elizabeth Joss, writer and blogger, born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa. I now live in The Netherlands. Before arriving here I lived like a gypsy and travelled out of a single suitcase for six months during 2013. During these six months I worked remotely for an online marketing company which funded my travels. I moved to The Netherlands in the middle of 2013 in order to take up a new job and to focus on my career.    

1. Why did you move abroad?
I initially moved abroad to be able to travel around Europe. After a stint of travelling/working remotely, I knew I wanted to further my career and explore more concrete work opportunities in Europe.


From the south of France to Spain to Australia: enSALADes From the south of France to Spain to Australia: enSALADes

Erin Erin  Date 03 March, 2014 09:01

Helene enSALADesHello! Bonjour! Hola! My name is Helene from enSALADes. I am originally from the south of France. I spent 4 years in Spain and 6 years in Oz and now am Australian citizen.

1. Why did you move abroad?
At first I was quite reluctant to move abroad to finish my degree. I moved to Spain for 4 months and ended up spending 4 years in Barcelona. When I had everything I wanted, I realized I was ready for another challenge. I decided to quit my job and moved to Sydney. I recently relocated to windy Perth in Western Australia with the feeling it won’t be my last move…

From Las Vegas to London: Girl in London From Las Vegas to London: Girl in London

Erin Erin  Date 24 February, 2014 09:11

girl in London Hi! I’m Cheylene, an American living in London. My backstory is a little complicated. I moved to London from Las Vegas, which is where I went to university. However, I spent most of my time in the US living in Northern California in a small town called Davis. Before that I lived near Savannah, Georgia in and even smaller town called Hinesville and before that I spent some time in Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany.

1. Why did you move abroad?
There are so many reasons! If I had to narrow it down, the main reason why I moved to England was because I wanted to see the world and experience life from a non-American perspective. I was also really inspired by my dad; he’s lived in and worked in four different countries (Korea, Thailand, Germany, USA), and I grew up listening to all his stories from his experiences around the world. Now that I’ve made the move abroad, I feel like I have some stories of my own that I’ll have to look back on when I get older.


From Nashville to Rome: Rome...If You Want To From Nashville to Rome: Rome...If You Want To

Erin Erin  Date 17 February, 2014 12:59

Rome if you want to My name is Elizabeth Knight and I am from Nashville, Tennessee, USA. I am lucky enough to live in Rome, Italy, and to have lived here twice – at different phases of my life. In the States, I am an attorney, and in Rome, I am a lot of things (but also an attorney). Life here is about 80% more difficult but 90% more fun. If I could find good Mexican food, that would be a full 100%.

1. Why did you move abroad?
The first time I moved abroad I was 21, fresh out of college, and I thought I’d come to Italy for a year to teach English. I ended up having so much fun that I stayed for four. Then, the responsibility gene in my American blood kicked in and I went back to the States, and to law school. I finished that, and practiced civil litigation for four years in Texas. Then something remarkable happened. Although everything in my life was quite fine and tolerable – there was nothing I just couldn’t stand – out of the blue, I started thinking about Italy again. It felt like a calling, and I became obsessed. I became so fixated by the idea, that even when I was forced to acknowledge that there are exactly zero professional jobs available in Italy, I decided that I would go anyway.
