From Germany to the USA: German in America

18 July, 2016 13:12  Erin Erin

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!

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!
