Frederica Houston

Ciao! Mi chiamo Federica, in arte Pitu’ e sono toscana (pistoiese di nascita e fiorentina di adozione). Adesso vivo a Houston in Texas, USA.

1. Perché ti sei trasferito all'estero?
Mi sono trasferita 10 anni fa a Londra per lavoro. All’epoca cercavo solo di farmi un’esperienza all’estero di un anno a due, per poi tornare in Italia con un curriculum piu’ forte. Per una serie di fortunati e sfortunati eventi, non sono mai tornata in Italia. Tre anni fa, io e la mia famiglia ci siamo trasferiti qua a Houston.

2. Come ti guadagni da vivere?
Sono una ricercatrice sul cancro e lavoro a MD Anderson Cancer Center.

From Australia to San Francisco: Bright Lights of America

09 January, 2017 09:39  Erin Erin

Kat Bright Lights USA Hi, I’m Kat (or Katherine when I’m in trouble), an Australian expat now on my second stint living overseas. I started off in London back in 2008 and have been loving travel ever since.

1.    Why did you move abroad?
It began as short adventures to Europe, visiting my Dad’s family in Malta as I grew up. Then in 2005 I travelled through Europe and that was the end of any chance I had of staying in Sydney forever. I was hooked. I ended up finding a job in San Francisco and moving to the US in mid-2015 and have had a fantastic time so far.

From Australia to Canada: Hayley on Holiday

12 September, 2016 22:02  Erin Erin

Haley on holiday I am Hayley, an Australian expat currently living in Vancouver, Canada. I call Townsville in Australia home, although I have also lived in Brisbane and Melbourne in recent years.

1.    Why did you move abroad?
I have always been interested in living in another country, but it wasn’t until 2013, when I was struggling with both work and life that I decided to take the leap. There was no particular reason behind my moving abroad, it was more just a “why not” situation. I returned home at the end of 2014, then decided to return to Canada in mid-2016.

German in AmericaHi, I am Natalie from Germany, living in the United States now. My home base is Arizona, but I travel a lot and I am just spending my fourth season up in Alaska.

1.     Why did you move abroad?
Business and Love! I met my (now) husband in Zimbabwe and finally followed him to the States (he is American) as we decided to start our own adventure overlanding company running trips from Las Vegas all the way up to Alaska in a converted school bus.

2.     How do you make a living?
I already mentioned my own business called Infinite Adventures (www.infiniteadv.com). We run trips in Alaska, Canada and the Western USA in a converted school bus doing all kinds of fun stuff: hiking, kayaking, camping and trying to find as many animals as possible: nothing better than seeing grizzlies, wolves, breaching orcas and all that good stuff while you are working!

from home to there Stéphanie, Française, j’habite à Chicago USA depuis Mai 2015.

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

Pourquoi pas?! Je suis mariée avec un Américain, ce qui me donne cette possibilité géniale de pouvoir vivre en Europe et aux USA, donc il faut en profiter. Mon mari s’est inscrit dans un programme d’études, et j’en avait un peu marre de la France, pas de travail fixe, pas de projets.

From Cambridge to Toronto: Brown Bear Travels

25 January, 2016 10:37  Erin Erin

brown bear travels We’re Emma and Stewart from Cambridge, England now living in Toronto, Canada. We like chocolate, pizza and our foster cats. Since living in Toronto, we’ve discovered a liking for poutine and beaver tails, whilst also developing a keener appreciation for the coming of Spring!

1.    Why did you move abroad?
We love travelling and liked the idea of living somewhere else for a bit and really getting to experience a new way of life so we looked into Working Holiday visas. The options were limited really to Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Canada offered lots of things we like when going on holiday: the great outdoors, mountains, lakes and wildlife with the added advantage of being that bit closer to home. Every single person we know who has visited raved about it, so we always knew we’d have a great time.

From France to Canada to around the world: Correr Es Mi Destino

28 December, 2015 07:45  Erin Erin

Juliiette Giannesini Canada My name is Juliette but you can call me “Zhu”, my Chinese name. I am one of these people who drag a battered backpack all over the world. Yes, there is a Canadian flag on it—I adopted this country as my new home in 2004.
I was born and raised in France and when I am not traveling the world, I live in Ottawa, Canada, with my husband and our French-Chinese-Canadian son.

1. Why did you move abroad?
It was a three-step process: 1) Travel around Latin America with a Canadian backpacker 2) Fall in love with said backpacker 3) Start a new life in Canada with him!

More seriously, I was born and raised in France and I caught the travel bug at the age of 16, when I spent a summer session in a university in Beijing, China. After I graduated from high school, I said “au revoir la France!”. Over the past 15 years, I worked in Hong Kong, backpacked all over Central and South America, South-East Asia, Australia, New-Zealand, China… and chose Canada as my home base, because everybody needs a home, somewhere!
