Home of the Twisted Red Ladybug A LadyBug who is an Expat, Travel Lover, Photo Maniac - Living in Magical Krakow - Born and Raised in The Vampire Land but not afraid of Garlic ;)

1. Why did you move abroad?
Well this is quite a long story so get a warm blanket and some hot tea ;) Kidding aside, here is the short version: I was working in Romania (in Iasi) in a corporation that had one of its main branches in Poland (in Krakow). The Team Leader from Krakow proposed I would come and give it a try. I said that I would do it for 6 months and then travel further on - I had even a plan for the UK/Ireland. Then Mr. Rosiek jumped in the picture and I stayed :)

From Scotland to Spain: Guiri Girl in Barca

25 August, 2014 09:58  Erin Erin

guirigirlbarca Julie Sheridan is a Scottish copywriter, poet and blogger who quit her home and career in Edinburgh in spring 2011 to follow a lifelong dream of achieving fluency in Spanish. She’s been ensconced in the Catalan capital ever since, getting eaten alive by mosquitos who feast on rare Celtic blood. She is also a Trustee of Latin American street children’s charity Casa Alianza UK.

1. Why did you move abroad?

With one sole goal – to become fluent in Spanish. I had studied it at university and had been in love with the language since I first heard Gloria Estefan singing in her native Spanish in the late 1980s. After graduating and starting a professional career in Edinburgh, I had very little opportunity to practise my Spanish, and in my early 30s I decided there was nothing for it but to quit my life in Scotland and head south.

From the USA to Hungary: The Great Escape

28 July, 2014 09:15  Erin Erin

Great Escape Hello, my name is Jennifer. Most people call me Jen, a few call me Jennifer, and only a handful are allowed to call me Jenny. The newest addition to the mix is “Miss Jennifer.” I am from the United States – I was born in North Carolina, but was raised in Georgia. I currently live in Budapest, Hungary.

1. Why did you move abroad?

Ever since I was little, I have equated Europe with happiness. I am not an emotional person, but the one thing I would always cry about (with the exception of Sarah McLachlan dog videos) is thinking I would never have the chance to move abroad. I finally stopped crying and made my dreams come true. Traveling is a hunger I shall never satisfy.

07 July, 2014 09:13  Erin Erin

Little Cathy-ki goes to germany I sign my blog as Cathy Adoris and I am Greek. At the time I started the blog, I had just moved to Germany and as I am giving this interview I have been living in Belgium for 10 months already.

1. Why did you move abroad?
The decision to move to Germany came when I decided I wanted to pursue a master’s degree, after feeling stuck in my job. I had been searching and spontaneously applied to a few universities, but when this admission letter arrived, I knew it was packing time.

From Romania to the Netherlands: Amsterdamming

23 June, 2014 13:43  Erin Erin

amsterdamming My name is Andra and I am from Bucharest, Romania. I moved to Amsterdam in Summer 2010 and have been living here ever since. Amsterdam is giving me peace of mind, inspiration and the impulse to photograph and share the way I see it. You may find my personal interpretation of this beautiful city on my blog, Amsterdamming.

1. Why did you move abroad?
I live in the Netherlands by pure chance. Before moving here, I had never imagined I would call this country home one day and I hardly knew anything about it apart from some clichés. What brought me to Amsterdam was a series of separate events which eventually came together - just like the pieces of a puzzle - to create the “picture” I am currently living in.  (More)

   


From New Zealand to England and back again: Sandysviews

16 June, 2014 10:39  Erin Erin

Sandysviews I'm Sandy of Sandysviews blog. Sandy isn't a girls name, Sandi is a girls name. Sandy is the Scottish abbreviation of Alexander which is my real name, but everyone calls me Sandy. I'm a New Zealander who spent 22 years in England.

1. Why did you move abroad?
I was going to go travelling when I left the army, but I didn't. Instead I waited until I should have been settling down and buying a house. I went abroad because I felt like I'd made a mess of everything in New Zealand. I ran away to see what I could make out of a life overseas.

From Chicago to Germany: Courtney the Ami

Courtney the Ami My name is Courtney, and I am an American from Chicago that has been living in Germany for about a year now.

1. Why did you move abroad?
After always wanting to study abroad, I finally found the opportunity to during my senior year of college. Since I had been studying German for 5 years, Germany was my country of choice. When my semester abroad came to an end, however, all I could think about was going back. So about one year after graduation, that is just what I did.

From Greece to the USA to Switzerland: Diary of a Move

12 May, 2014 09:54  Erin Erin

Diary of a Move Hi, I’m Katia Vlachos. I’m Greek, grew up in Greece (though I was born and spent the first four years of my life in Cameroon) but have lived outside my “passport country” for almost 20 years now – in the U.S. (Boston and Los Angeles), France, the Netherlands, Austria and, most recently, Switzerland.

1. Why did you move abroad?
The first time I moved away from Greece was when I was 24 to go to graduate school in the United States. I had a strong feeling that I would not be returning home after that – and I didn’t. I met my future husband in graduate school and we decided that we wanted to live in France…so we moved to Paris. There were several other moves after that, driven by educational/professional opportunities, personal circumstances or a mix of those.

From North Staffordshire to Abruzzo: A Life On Shuffle

28 April, 2014 09:49  Erin Erin

A Life on Shuffle Barry Lillie, originally from North Staffordshire, England now living in Abruzzo, Italy.

1. Why did you move abroad?
I fell in love with Italy back in 1980 and kept coming back and eventually realised this is where I wanted to live. I know it sounds corny, but it just felt like this was where I was supposed to be. As I work from home, I can work anywhere so it seemed the right thing to do and with budget flights I can be in the UK if I need to be in a couple of hours.
