Emily Wiltshire Renditions of Renoir My name is Emily Wiltshire though to many I could be “MimiCakes” or “Mommy” and I am originally from good ole’ Oklahoma! We are currently (and just recently) back in Oklahoma after spending several years overseas that included Shanghai, China; Sydney, Australia and Hong Kong.

1. Why did you move abroad?
We first moved abroad for my husband’s company. I still remember the day he came home from work and told me about his boss asking about us possibly moving to Shanghai. After a few hours of research on the computer I told him I was in. He thought I was crazy (and wasn’t so sure himself!) but off we went, in tow with our 1 1/2 year old son! And what was supposed to be a 2 1/2 year stint turned into 3 different countries in 6 1/2 years and adding two more sons to the family!

10 August, 2015 08:07  Erin Erin

hey helsinki Hi, my name is Mel. I’m a New Zealander who lived in Sydney, Australia for 11 years before relocating with my husband and son to Helsinki, Finland. Sydney had its coldest two days in a row in 20 years this week, with a forecast of 13 degrees Celsius. In Finland we now call that a warm spring day and are out eating ice cream!

1. Why did you move abroad?
My husband is a games artist and Finland is the place to be right now in terms of great opportunities in the industry. When he got a job here we knew we had to come, although it was a fairly tough decision given it’s a 26-hour flight from home.

1. Why did you move abroad?
I moved abroad to study. Actually, Germany wasn’t even on my list of countries to apply for my Masters degree. It just happened by accident. I call it the best accident ever.
