From the UK to New Zealand to the French Alps: Jumping off Books

16 July, 2018 21:06  Erin Erin

Jumping off Books I’m Naomi, I’m originally from the UK but I now have dual citizenship and am a proud New Zealander. I currently live in a small resort town high in the French Alps

1.    Why did you move abroad?
When I was 27 I decided to blow a chunk of the deposit I’d been saving for a flat in London and go travelling instead. Best decision ever! During my year away I spent a few months in New Zealand and as the plane took off to whizz me onto my next destination I realised I was leaving a bit of my heart behind, and that I’d better return to join it! 

I had a few other things I wanted to do in London – like buy that flat and tick the city box, but I only took a couple of years and I was itching to sell everything and get ‘home’. I persuaded my boyfriend to give it a shot with me, and we emigrated together.

From Russia to USA: Travel Eat Blog

02 July, 2018 20:38  Erin Erin

Eat Travel Blog USA Hi, my name is Marina, I was born in the south of Russia, in a city called Volgograd (formerly known as Stalingrad). I now live in the United States, I just finished college and I am ready to explore the world.

1.    Why did you move abroad?
I went to the United States as a high school exchange student. I spent a year learning English, living in a host family and going to an American high school. It was a free program: students from some European and Asian countries are given a chance every year at a competition and they can win a year abroad in the US. It was a wonderful experience, I learned the language, made friends across the world and travelled more than I ever have!

After I returned home to Russia, I applied for a couple of colleges in Moscow and a couple in the United States.
I decided to come back to the US and see what new adventures it will bring. Since then I graduated college and studied abroad in Spain and got my first job in America. I still strive to explore the world as much as I can, and I am planning on going to graduate school, too. Still more adventures to come!

My wife and I are always seeking out new experiences for ourselves as individuals, but also for our family. We were looking for another chapter for our lives in a new country and culture. Four years ago we spent two weeks travelling in a caravan through New Zealand’s North Island and decided to move there for a year. We loved it so much, we decided to move back permanently.

From California to Italy to Sweden: Niche Travel Design

28 May, 2018 09:37  Erin Erin

Niche TravelI am Shelley Jarvis. I grew up in Northern California in the wine country. I first moved as an expat to Italy. I currently live in Sweden.

1. Why did you move abroad?
I am an explorer by nature and I was restless living in a perfect suburban town. I always wanted to live abroad and I wanted my children to live abroad. My theory was that the world is becoming more global by the minute and I wanted my kids to feel comfortable living in the world. I have a friend who told me she is afraid to travel because she doesn’t know another language and she would feel unsafe. I did not want my children to be afraid of the world. I wanted them to learn about and live in another culture and to learn another language. I saw it as a bit of an insurance policy for their futures as they would have more options when it came to job hunting.

From the USA to Colombia: Medellin Guru

21 May, 2018 07:59  Erin Erin

Medellin Guru My name is Jeff. I was born in California but I lived in several states in the U.S. and also lived overseas in Indonesia for five years when I was young.

I was living in Dallas, Texas in the U.S. before I moved to Medellín, Colombia. I have now lived in Medellín for over seven years.

1.    Why did you move abroad?
I originally discovered Colombia back in late 2006, when I was living in Dallas and looking for a new vacation place.  I was looking for someplace warm to go, as this was during the winter.  Cartagena was the first place I discovered in Colombia.

How I discovered Colombia? I happened to buy a book “100 Places to See in Your Lifetime: Heaven on Earth” published by Life magazine. And two places in the book caught my eye as possible vacation places – Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and Cartagena, Colombia.

From Indonesia to Russia: Sightseer's Diary

14 May, 2018 13:38  Erin Erin

Sightseer's Diary My name is Eva. I was born in an exotic country, where you can find coconut trees everywhere – Indonesia. Then I moved to a faraway country covered in snow in the winter – Russia. This is my fourth year living in Moscow, the capital city that will soon be the host of the world's most exciting event – the FIFA World Cup 2018!  

1.    Why did you move abroad?
My husband is one of the reasons I moved to Russia. We both decided to live and work hard in Russia first, then maybe in the future, once he has more resources, we shall move to a warm, sunny country. The other reason I moved was because I wanted to learn Russian. I am a language lover and living in Russia is a great opportunity for me to learn something new.

From the UK to Cape Town to Nairobi: The Expat Mummy

07 May, 2018 08:45  Erin Erin

Expat Mummy I am Nadine Murphy. I’m a British mum living in Nairobi, Kenya… though I’ve just come from living in Cape Town for 6 years.

1.    Why did you move abroad?
I moved to Cape Town to be with my husband who had a great expatriate job opportunity. My first child was just 3 months old and the assignment was just to be two years.  We thought it a great opportunity to be able to spend time just being a mum. Our twins were born 12 months later and we ended up staying in Cape Town. After 6 years my husband was offered the dream chance to open his own office in Kenya and we jumped at the chance to experience more of Africa.
