delighted to have been given the opportunity to write about my experiences for BlogExpat!

17 November, 2014 09:17  Erin Erin

A New Life Wandering Mani is a girl in her twenties with a name from India but born and raised in Mexico City. In 2008 she met her soul-mate (an American) while traveling in India. She blogs about travel, food and photography as well as her personal unpredictable experiences, attempting to seek a simpler life, wandering around the world, and surrendering to God.

1. Why did you move abroad?
I’ve moved abroad a few times. The first time was for college (Mexico City to London). The second time was to follow my heart, my soul-mate to the USA. Then we moved together to India where we had quite an experience, and we are currently back in the USA.


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).

From Suffolk to San Miguel de Allende: Twenty First century Nomad

04 August, 2014 09:31  Erin Erin

Twenty First Century Nomad My name is Steven Moore, and I am originally from the seaside town of Lowestoft, Suffolk in the U.K. I am delighted to be currently living in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.

1. Why did you move abroad?  
I first went travelling as a 20 year old with very little money and a backpack, and I’ve never really stopped. I fell in love with adventure and life on ‘the road,’ and always felt more at home when I wasn’t at home, if that makes sense? I’ve lived in several different countries now, and I doubt I will ever live in England again. It must be the rain.


From the USA to Mexico: Escaping Abroad

1. Why did you move abroad?
Since before I can remember I always wanted to explore other cultures and travel to far away places. But after college I found myself sitting in an office all day working. I was caught up in the materialism that surrounds us and couldn't afford to do the things I really wanted. So I gave it all up and left to seek a different lifestyle.

Have Goslings must travel My name is Clare, I am nearly 32 years old.  I was born in Northern Ireland, but moved to England when I was 7, and lived there till 2012.  I met my husband in France in 2001, we married in 2004.  Oliver was born 2006, Isaac came along in 2008 and we finished off with Sebastian in 2011.  We have been living in South Carolina since September 2012.

1. Why did you move abroad?
My husband works in the automotive industry.  In 2011 he was asked if he would be interested in an international assignment.  Sebastian was 3 months old at the time, so we had to say no.  A year later they asked him again.  We were interested, depending on location.  They gave us 3 locations, and we decided on South Carolina.
