Expat Interviews

From Scotland to Spain: Guiri Girl in Barca From Scotland to Spain: Guiri Girl in Barca

Erin Erin  Date 25 August, 2014 09:58

guirigirlbarca Julie Sheridan is a Scottish copywriter, poet and blogger who quit her home and career in Edinburgh in spring 2011 to follow a lifelong dream of achieving fluency in Spanish. She’s been ensconced in the Catalan capital ever since, getting eaten alive by mosquitos who feast on rare Celtic blood. She is also a Trustee of Latin American street children’s charity Casa Alianza UK.

1. Why did you move abroad?

With one sole goal – to become fluent in Spanish. I had studied it at university and had been in love with the language since I first heard Gloria Estefan singing in her native Spanish in the late 1980s. After graduating and starting a professional career in Edinburgh, I had very little opportunity to practise my Spanish, and in my early 30s I decided there was nothing for it but to quit my life in Scotland and head south.

From NYC to Cape Town: The South AfriKhan From NYC to Cape Town: The South AfriKhan

Erin Erin  Date 18 August, 2014 07:15

Sarah Khan My name is Sarah Khan, and ever since I moved from New York to Cape Town, South Africa, I've given myself an alter ego: The South AfriKhan.  

1. Why did you move abroad?
It's pretty cliché at this point, but who cares — I came to South Africa on vacation, fell in love with Cape Town and with a guy here (in that order), then married him and moved here a year later.

From USA to Australia to South Korea: American Abroad From USA to Australia to South Korea: American Abroad

Erin Erin  Date 11 August, 2014 09:55

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.

From Suffolk to San Miguel de Allende: Twenty First century Nomad From Suffolk to San Miguel de Allende: Twenty First century Nomad

Erin Erin  Date 04 August, 2014 09:31

Twenty First Century Nomad My name is Steven Moore, and I am originally from the seaside town of Lowestoft, Suffolk in the U.K. I am delighted to be currently living in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.

1. Why did you move abroad?  
I first went travelling as a 20 year old with very little money and a backpack, and I’ve never really stopped. I fell in love with adventure and life on ‘the road,’ and always felt more at home when I wasn’t at home, if that makes sense? I’ve lived in several different countries now, and I doubt I will ever live in England again. It must be the rain.

From the USA to Hungary: The Great Escape From the USA to Hungary: The Great Escape

Erin Erin  Date 28 July, 2014 09:15

Great Escape Hello, my name is Jennifer. Most people call me Jen, a few call me Jennifer, and only a handful are allowed to call me Jenny. The newest addition to the mix is “Miss Jennifer.” I am from the United States – I was born in North Carolina, but was raised in Georgia. I currently live in Budapest, Hungary.

1. Why did you move abroad?

Ever since I was little, I have equated Europe with happiness. I am not an emotional person, but the one thing I would always cry about (with the exception of Sarah McLachlan dog videos) is thinking I would never have the chance to move abroad. I finally stopped crying and made my dreams come true. Traveling is a hunger I shall never satisfy.

From England to Dubai: Footsteps of a Wanderer From England to Dubai: Footsteps of a Wanderer

Erin Erin  Date 21 July, 2014 09:38

Footsteps of a WandererSam is a PR and social media consultant from England, who moved to Dubai on her own in January 2006, promising her family it would only be for two years. Over the many years that followed she has been busy sharing the less well known parts of the UAE - across deserts, mountains, beaches and even underwater - on her blog 'Footsteps of a Wanderer', along with a lot of other useful travel advice.

1. Why did you move abroad?
My dad had been living in Abu Dhabi and I came for a visit and saw a lot of potential. Things were tough in the UK and I had no ties, so I contacted a few PR agencies when I arrived and as an experienced PR and events person with native English, I was in high demand - I came back from the two week holiday with two offer letters and handed in my notice!

From the USA to Mexico: Escaping Abroad From the USA to Mexico: Escaping Abroad

Erin Erin  Date 14 July, 2014 09:54

Escaping Abroad I’m James and I’m leaving the ‘American dream’ in my rear view to set out and explore the world we all live on but rarely see much of! I share my love for new travel adventures, scuba diving, wildlife encounters and discovering new cultures with blog posts, photos and videos at www.escapingabroad.com.

1. Why did you move abroad?
Since before I can remember I always wanted to explore other cultures and travel to far away places. But after college I found myself sitting in an office all day working. I was caught up in the materialism that surrounds us and couldn't afford to do the things I really wanted. So I gave it all up and left to seek a different lifestyle.

From Greece to Germany to Belgium: Little Cathy-ki Goes to Germany From Greece to Germany to Belgium: Little Cathy-ki Goes to Germany

Erin Erin  Date 07 July, 2014 09:13

Little Cathy-ki goes to germany I sign my blog as Cathy Adoris and I am Greek. At the time I started the blog, I had just moved to Germany and as I am giving this interview I have been living in Belgium for 10 months already.

1. Why did you move abroad?
The decision to move to Germany came when I decided I wanted to pursue a master’s degree, after feeling stuck in my job. I had been searching and spontaneously applied to a few universities, but when this admission letter arrived, I knew it was packing time.

From the USA to Kuwait: American Girl's World From the USA to Kuwait: American Girl's World

Erin Erin  Date 30 June, 2014 10:22

American Girl's World kuwait Hi there! My name is Diane and I’m from central North Carolina in the U.S.A. I lived in Kuwait for a bit more than 10 years, married a local, and we moved back to my hometown in North Carolina last year. We continue to maintain our home in Kuwait and travel back and forth several times a year so I guess it’s safe to say we live in both countries now.

1. Why did you move abroad?
I had completed my education and found myself seeking something challenging beyond the typical 9-5 workday.

From Romania to the Netherlands: Amsterdamming From Romania to the Netherlands: Amsterdamming

Erin Erin  Date 23 June, 2014 13:43

amsterdamming My name is Andra and I am from Bucharest, Romania. I moved to Amsterdam in Summer 2010 and have been living here ever since. Amsterdam is giving me peace of mind, inspiration and the impulse to photograph and share the way I see it. You may find my personal interpretation of this beautiful city on my blog, Amsterdamming.

1. Why did you move abroad?
I live in the Netherlands by pure chance. Before moving here, I had never imagined I would call this country home one day and I hardly knew anything about it apart from some clichés. What brought me to Amsterdam was a series of separate events which eventually came together - just like the pieces of a puzzle - to create the “picture” I am currently living in.  (More)
