Heather Cloggie CentralHello!  My name is Heather Tucker.  I am originally from Indiana, USA and I now live in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.  

1. Why did you move abroad?

I originally moved abroad in 1996 when I was just 16 years old.  I had been selected as a Rotary Youth Ambassador, which involved moving to a different country for one year.  The country I was assigned to was Estonia, where I lived in the capital city, Tallinn.  The year abroad was a great experience and involved a lot of travel opportunities.  The experience really highlighted to me how much I enjoyed Europe.  In 1998 I moved to the United Kingdom, where I lived for almost nine years in London and Kent before moving to the Netherlands in 2007.

From Boston to Milan: A Change Of Underwear

underwear garrettCiao! My name is Garrett McKenna. I’m an American originally from Boston. I moved to Italy on September 28th, 2005. Bologna (the city of tortellini and ragú sauce) was my first Italian “hometown” and I’m currently living in Milan (the city of fashion and design).

1. Why did you move abroad?
After I finished college, I decided that I wanted to “explore my roots”. Like almost everybody from Boston, I had both Irish and Italian ancestry (my Dad’s side is Irish and my Mom’s side is Italian – both going back to great grandparents). I moved to Galway, Ireland for ten months and worked at a bar/restaurant. After that, I returned to the states for a bit before setting off for Italy. When I first got here I had no job, no friends, no place to live, and I barely spoke any Italian. It was supposed to be a one-year-experience thing, but here I am more than 5 years later…

I moved abroad because I love to travel and I wanted to see more of the world.

2. How do you make a living (working? Tell us about your experience)?
I make a living from running a travel business. I write my blog, www.aladyinlondon.com, and I also have websites like www.visitingeu.com that offer tips for travel. I plan trips for people, too. I enjoy it a lot, not least because I get to travel all over the world.

Ian AutumnMy name is Ian and I’m born and bred in the Pacific Northwest.  I attended college in Seattle and lived there until 2007, when I moved to Berlin, Germany for a year.  I returned home briefly to get hitched, and now I’m living in Berlin with my wife and having a blast!

1. Why did you move abroad?
I previously had spent a year abroad in Berlin, and after returning home for a couple of years, I realized something was missing in my life.  What it was, was the adventure and excitement that comes from living in a foreign country.
