Jase AndorraI’m Jase from Adelaide in South Australia. I now live in Andorra (in Europe) with my wife and son.

1.    Why did you move abroad?
My wife and I never intended on moving abroad. After getting married in Adelaide (we were both born there) we took a 3 month backpacking honeymoon, mostly through Europe, then flew on to Canada for what was meant to be a 9 month working holiday.

1. Pourquoi êtes-vous partis à l'étranger ?

Un peu las des incivilités du quotidien à Lyon et de la mentalité française, nous avions envie de changement dans notre vie. Nous souhaitions également améliorer notre anglais et permettre à notre fille d'être bilingue dès son plus jeune âge.



From Texas to Australia to Germany: What the Blog?

13 August, 2018 10:09  Erin Erin

what the blog germany Hi! I’m Anika. I grew up in a suburb northeast of Houston, Texas, but moved out when I turned 18. I lived in Austin for university, studied abroad in Melbourne, Australia (where I got bit by the travel bug), and moved to San Francisco with my degree in hand and a job with Americorps to start my career. Since then, I’ve lived in Austin (again), Washington, DC, and currently, Mainz, Germany. I love to travel, although the arrival of my 2 sons (now 5 and 2.5) has slowed it down a little. I love writing, and wanted to make sure I kept a log of my favorite travel memories –hence, the blog!

1.    Why did you move abroad?
My husband and I had both really wanted to live abroad “someday”. We were both on the job market, and he got his ‘dream’ job in Mainz, Germany. I figured I could make something work, and that it may be our best chance at living overseas. We didn’t own a house, have kids, or have much debt. We still had (have?) a sense of adventure and wanting to explore Europe. We didn’t speak German, but we were up for the challenge!

Pasta et Bambini : Charlène Bonjour, je suis Charlène ! Il y a bientôt un an nous avons quitté Lyon avec mon mari Nicolas et nos deux enfants pour nous installer dans la région de Milan.

1. Pourquoi êtes-vous partis à l'étranger ?

Nicolas travaille dans une société de logistique française qui dispose de filiales en Italie. On lui a proposé de déployer la solution française de l’autre côté des Alpes. Nous rêvions d’une expérience à l’étranger depuis longtemps, suite à un voyage au long cours il y a quelques années. Nous avons donc saisi l’opportunité.



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.

Da Sardegna a Copenhagen: itaGIRLSonTHEroad

25 June, 2018 10:14  Erin Erin

Italian copenhagen Mi chiamo Rosa, vivo in Danimarca vicino a Copenaghen e attualmente scrivo sul blog Italian girls on the road.

1. Perché ti sei trasferito all'estero?

Per vivere un’esperienza nuova. Avevo voglia di viaggiare un po’ ed era il momento giusto per me. Così sono partita.

2. Come ti guadagni da vivere?
Prima di partire ho messo da parte dei soldi per autofinanziare il mio soggiorno all’estero, quindi non ho avuto bisogno di lavorare full time. Mi sono concentrata sullo studio della lingua e tutt’ora lo studio assorbe la maggior parte del mio tempo. Quindi nel poco tempo libero faccio piccoli lavori della durata di un giorno che possono spaziare dall’organizzazione di eventi alla baby sitter. Trovo sia un buon modo per conoscere nuove persone e il paese in cui si vive.


Du Jura à l'Irlande : L'irlandais

14 June, 2018 08:00  Expat Interviews Expat Interviews

MyIreland - OlivierHello everyone ! Je m’appelle Olivier, 30 ans et je suis originaire de l’est de la France, dans le Jura. Maintenant je vis en Irlande à Dublin depuis 2010.

1. Pourquoi êtes-vous partis à l'étranger ?

À l’origine, c’était vraiment pour apprendre l’anglais. Je suis quelqu’un d’assez ouvert et ne pas pouvoir parler aux étrangers me frustrait énormément ! Je suis également un grand fan de VTT et toutes les coupes du monde retransmises sur le net étaient diffusées en anglais… alors un jour, je me suis dit qu’après mes études, je partirais apprendre l’anglais pour m’ouvrir toutes ces portes vers l’extérieur.



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 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.
