Renata no problem India My name is Renata, I grew up in Poland, almost 6000 km away from the place where I live now. Since 2013 I’m based in India, the country of colors, contrasts and never ending chaos, the place where I fell in love and settled with my bi-cultural family. I am an engineer by education, translator by profession, blogger by passion (noprobleminindia.com) and a happy full time mom by heart.

1.    Why did you move abroad?
I am the Erasmus, multicultural, ready to go and ready to relocate anywhere generation. Passion for travelling, discovering new cultures started by exploring Schengen countries (easy to do for a budget trips) first as a tourist, then as a young post graduate professional searching for a job in Europe took me unexpectedly to… Asia. I got an internship in India (in Chennai) and then, even more unexpectedly I ended up marrying an Indian man and settling down in India.

Expat in Estonia Alina My name is Alina and I am 26 years old. I moved to Estonia about 1 year ago, after living for more than 6 years as an expat in Denmark and I am originally from Bucharest, Romania.

1. Why did you move abroad?
After I finished my Master’s degrees in Denmark, I worked there for a while, but then decided it’s time for new adventures. My husband is Estonian (we met in Denmark) and I really thought Estonia is a really cosy country, yet constantly developing. I started applying for jobs online, when we were just discussing the idea of moving to Estonia; it all started more like a joke (“let’s see what happens”). But I got an offer really fast, so we decided to give it a go.

We moved for quite a few reasons. What put us over the top was the election of the president in the US. One of the other reasons was major seasonal allergy problems in Florida. We were fortunate enough to live in Germany for 4 years and really loved Europe and wanted to come back. It helps that my wife has dual citizenship for Ireland and the US.

I'm Nele (pronounced as Nayla), a Dutch 22 year old girl who moved to Manchester, England in 2014. While studying English and Creative Writing, I also share my experiences and interests on my blog.

1.Why did you move abroad?
There’s two main reasons why I decided to move abroad at 18 years old that go hand in hand. One, my boyfriend is English. Two, I wanted to study English but not purely as a second language. When I discovered Manchester Metropolitan University offered an English and Creative Writing degree, I started planning my move. It was made a lot easier because I already knew my boyfriend and his family there, who have helped me massively!
