De Barcelona a Holanda: La Zapatilla

18 November, 2013 09:36  Erin Erin

la zapatilla sonia Hola a tod@s, me llamo Sonia, soy de Barcelona y hace más de cuatro años que vivo en Holanda.

1. ¿Por qué se fue al extranjero?
Me encanta viajar y conocer otros países. Antes de mudarme a Holanda había vivido cinco meses en Irlanda trabajando de au pair, conocía muchos expatriados en Barcelona y pensé que era un buen momento para vivir la experiencia en mis propias carnes. Después de mucho pensarlo, me pareció que Ámsterdam era la ciudad ideal. Cosmopolita, a dos horas de vuelo, donde se puede trabajar hablando inglés y con la oportunidad añadida de conocer otro idioma y otra cultura.

From Dallas to Brussels: MontgomeryFest

31 October, 2013 10:47  Erin Erin

MontgomeryFest couple We are the Montgomery’s. I’m Annie and the saner half is Justin. We hopped from Dallas to Brussels in 2012, four months after we got married. Originally, I’m from South Louisiana and him from the Pacific Northwest, which explains any contrast reactions to life here in Belgium. Because it’s cold.

1. Why did you move abroad?
On our fourth date, we decided on it.  We got into the tough questions and realized that we both had a passion for seeing the world, so we made it our mission. We always had it as an eventual plan, but after we got engaged the next year, we started plotting. Justin’s work offered a tour, so, obviously. The plan was to just get out and there was an opening in Brussels. Done! (More)

the three under Spring in Oisterwijk Farrah Ritter, originally from Michigan - but an expat in the Netherlands by way of South Carolina. We live in a small village just south of Tilburg.

1. Why did you move abroad?

My husband and I have always wanted to experience an expat assignment- so after years of waiting (having kids) we went for it. We wanted to experience Europe as residents- not just travelers. We wanted to share this experience with our very young boys in hopes that they will develop their own love for travel and appreciation of other cultures. We most certainly did not do it for the weather :)

2. How do you make a living?
My husband works for a global company with the world headquarters in Germany. I am home with our boys- ages 4, 3 &3 (twins).

Having been a barman in the UK I have never found it too hard to find work doing the same thing abroad.
