conjugating irregular verbs Aidan Larson, Texan, currently living in Montpellier, France

1. Why did you move abroad?
My husband, Paul and I always dreamed of living abroad, specifically the South of France, since our honeymoon there in 1998. He works at a multi-national company that has thankfully made it possible for us to do just that. We first came to Europe via Ireland and spent five life changing, baby having, years there. I loved every bit of it, except the weather. We came to Montpellier in February of 2010. (More)

   


From San Francisco to Berlin: Chasing Heartbeats

14 February, 2013 09:08  Erin Erin

Chasing Heartbeats Ashley Hi! I'm Ashley.  I hail from California's picturesque central coast and now call Berlin home.

1. Why did you move abroad?
I was sent abroad by a former job, I set up a photo department for a company based near the French/German border.  I lived in Paris for a year in 2006 and my old boss knew how badly I wanted to move back to France.  He somehow (probably on purpose) failed to mention that the company they had acquired was actually located over the border in Germany rather than in France.  A fact I didn't really realize until I had already moved across the world.  It all worked out in the end, I met my husband in the small city in the south of Germany where we lived for 3 years before moving to Berlin and fell in love with the country and the German people.

from there to here My name is Jay and I’m a former teacher from Canada that now calls Stavanger, Norway home.

1. Why did you move abroad?
A few years ago, I was teaching full time in Northern Alberta and my husband was working for a large international company as a mechanical engineer when he was approached to move into a global position.  We found the idea of living overseas and travelling irresistible.  In July 2010, we packed up our bags and moved to Gabon, a country on the West coast of Africa.  We were so thankful for our time abroad and we knew as things were coming to an end in Gabon that we weren’t ready to move home to Canada so we accepted a second expatriation in Norway.

17 January, 2013 10:47  Erin Erin

Aphrodites Shade - © CIPS/Marcos Gittis Mein Name ist Christiane Sternberg. Ich bin Berlinerin und lebe jetzt in Nikosia. Zusammen mit meinem Mann, dem Fotografen Marcos Gittis.

1. Warum bist du ins Ausland umgezogen?
Um eine lange Geschichte kurz zu erzählen: Zu der Zeit, als es in Zypern für uns als Journalisten besonders spannend war, haben wir uns mit einem Fuß hier niedergelassen (2003 Öffnung der Grenzen nach fast 30 Jahren, 2004 gescheitertes Referendum zur Wiedervereinigung, Beitritt der Republik Zypern zur EU). Wir lebten jeweils ein paar Monate in Zypern, dann in Berlin und wieder retour. Auf Dauer geht das natürlich nicht. Irgendwann mussten wir uns entscheiden – und deshalb zogen wir 2006 endgültig nach Zypern.

From New York City to the South of France: Blaxpat and Loving It

13 December, 2012 09:39  Erin Erin

Blaxpat and Loving It My name is Delorys Welch-Tyson.  I was born, home grown and educated in the “Big Apple (New York City)”.  I’ve lived in other parts of the United States as well: Missouri, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Connecticut.

For the past 14 years my husband and I have been living in the South of France.

1. Why did you move abroad?
It just seemed logical.  You see…many years ago (I won’t tell you how many), I took a simple one week vacation in Nice.  I instantly fell in love with the region and continued to come, for increasing lengths of time every year for over a decade.  

When my husband retired, we decided to move here indefinitely.
