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!

Emily Wiltshire Renditions of Renoir My name is Emily Wiltshire though to many I could be “MimiCakes” or “Mommy” and I am originally from good ole’ Oklahoma! We are currently (and just recently) back in Oklahoma after spending several years overseas that included Shanghai, China; Sydney, Australia and Hong Kong.

1. Why did you move abroad?
We first moved abroad for my husband’s company. I still remember the day he came home from work and told me about his boss asking about us possibly moving to Shanghai. After a few hours of research on the computer I told him I was in. He thought I was crazy (and wasn’t so sure himself!) but off we went, in tow with our 1 1/2 year old son! And what was supposed to be a 2 1/2 year stint turned into 3 different countries in 6 1/2 years and adding two more sons to the family!

From Cotswolds to Maryland: Desperate English Housewife in Washington

03 November, 2014 08:25  Erin Erin

UK Desperate Housewife in USAClaire McGill from the lovely Cotswolds, England and now living in Columbia, Maryland, USofA.

1. Why did you move abroad?
The decision to move to the USA wasn’t based on the fact that we thought the grass would be greener; we simply wanted to water, smell, walk on and nurture a different type of grass for a while. Our philosophy is that change is good, opportunities are meant to be taken, and a little bit of excitement, risk, and the unknown are tonics for the soul and for relationships.

Plus, I had a nagging fascination with things like Glee, Miami Vice, Fame, The Wire and Desperate Housewives and I kind of wanted to see if any of it is true. (Between you and me, some of it is).
