Di Verona in Messico: Dalle Foreste Messicane

24 November, 2011 10:40  Erin Erin

Dalle Foreste Messicane portrait Mi chiamo Dario, ho trentun anni e sono originario di Verona.

1. Perché ti sei trasferito all'estero?
Nel 2005 mi sono laureato in scienze forestali e ambientali all'università di Padova. Una volta fuori, adulto in un mondo di adulti, ho cercato di fare qualcosa che ritenevo scontato ossia realizzarmi come persona e come professionista. Non avrei mai pensato che in Italia fosse così difficile. Così nel 2011 sono partito alla volta del Messico.

From London to Baltimore: Mommy Has A Headache

14 November, 2011 09:04  Erin Erin

mommy has a headache emmaHi my name is Emma K (Kaufmann). I was spawned in London, UK but after meeting my Ideal Frog I hopped the pond 11 years ago. I now live in Baltimore, USA and have spawned two lady frogettes.

1. Why did you move abroad?

Well it was all a bit sudden to tell you the truth. I was dating a guy who lived in Ireland and he was starting grad school in Baltimore and asked me if I wanted to come along. Honestly at the time I had no idea where Baltimore was. All I knew was that its citizens were swathed in luxury materials or so I thought after hearing that Joan Baez song: ‘The Lady Came From Baltimore, All She Wore Was Lace.’ Well it sounded quite fancy although when I got here no one was done up in nothing but lace curtains, alas (Stella McCartney are you listening this could be the next big trend)!

De France en Ontario : Coucou Canada

10 October, 2011 08:32  Erin Erin

cous cous planeBonjour,  je suis Madame Canadoux . Je suis française et je vis avec Mr Canadoux depuis 3 ans au Canada avec mon petit mari Mr Canadoux.  Tous les 2 nous vivons dans une maison en bois au Canada ( en Ontario ) .

Haaa le Canada !!! , je pourrais vous en parler des heures. C’est ma passion !  Je suis tombée complètement amoureuse de ce pays. Tellement amoureuse que j’y  ai immigré c’est pour vous dire .   

1.Pourquoi êtes-vous partis à l'étranger ?
Mon premier voyage au Canada remonte à 2005. Avec celui qui deviendra plus tard mon mari (hello Chéri J ), nous nous étions organisés un petit autotour  en amoureux sur la Cote Est du Canada ( Toronto, Montreal, Quebec …  )  . Ces vacances furent comme une véritable REVELATION !  La beauté des paysages, l’immensité du pays et la gentillesse des canadiens nous ont littéralement subjugués.
Je me rappelle être rentré en  France et avoir plaisanté en disant  «  Voila un pays pour nous. On devrait aller y vivre ».

From Somerset to Boston: On Love, Tea, and Alienship

25 July, 2011 11:16  Erin Erin

love tea alienship wed day My name’s Hannah, but my many nicknames include Hans, Span and (most recently, thanks to my husband), The HanMan (I’m told the The is important). I’m originally from Somerset, England, but lived for a number of years in London, and am currently living in Boston USA (read: suburb of Boston that’s nowhere near as nice as actual Boston).

1. Why did you move abroad?
I’d love to say it was for a job or an adventure or because I wanted easy access to Mozzarella Sticks…but it was for a man – Jeremy. We’d long distanced for over seven years (with some respite when I studied in Boston for a year) and then decided to get married and try living on the same continent. (More)

   


De Paris à New York: Desperate French Mom

07 July, 2011 09:31  Erin Erin

desperate french mom logoHello moi c’est Desperate French Mom, Laurence pour les intimes. J’étais il n’y a pas si longtemps une working parisienne pure et dure jusqu’à ce coup de fil fatidique qui a tout fait basculer. Désormais j’habite tout au nord des Etats-Unis, à Rochester plus exactement. Et j’ai embarqué dans mes valises mes 2 lutins (2,5ans et 9mois!) ainsi que mon Dunkerquois bien entendu.


1. Pourquoi êtes-vous partis à l'étranger ?
C’est une question que je me pose tous les jours...Mais qu’est-ce qui m’a pris??!

Plus sérieusement, parce que l’opportunité s’est présentée pour mon homme de travailler aux USA et que nous avions cette idée en tête depuis longtemps... découvrir de nouveaux horizons, sortir de notre routine, apprendre et profitez de la vie!

From Australia to Mexico: The Philiad

13 June, 2011 09:50  Erin Erin

philiad My name is Philip Johnson, I’m an Australian currently living in Mexico. I say I’m Australian but people are constantly calling this into doubt. Apparently my accent isn’t strong enough. I’m working on rehabilitating it, but still it’s disturbing how often people mistake me for a non-native English speaker (people often guess that I’m Danish for some reason).

1. Why did you move abroad?
I never hatched any grand plans to ‘move abroad’. When I first started travelling, I ended up working and living abroad quite by chance. I was lucky to fall into the world of the English teacher, which is an easy access point to living abroad. Since that first accidental experience (living in Spain and earning under-the-table euros by teaching government employees), I’ve been living ‘abroad’ almost continuously. Once I fell into it I had no desire to climb back out.

From Germany to Texas: Country Skipper

06 June, 2011 09:44  Erin Erin

country skipper sabrina Hey! My name is Sabrina and I am from Germany. For a while I moved around a lot between Egypt, Germany, France, and the US. For the past seven years I’ve lived in Texas. I have family all over the world, so my blog, www.countryskipper.com, is a mix between a travel and an expat blog.

1. Why did you move abroad?
Wanderlust maybe? I really just like experiencing different cultures and getting to see new places. I like warm weather. And I like meeting other expats. When I moved to Egypt after high school it was because I wanted to do something fun before starting college. And fun it was! I got to work in a scuba diving center, be at the Red Sea, enjoy the sun every day, and go out a lot. In college I studied International Business and that included a semester in France and another one in Texas. After that I finished my degree in Germany and moved back to Texas where I still live with the Italian guy I met on my exchange semester here. So, make that wanderlust paired with love?

From Vancouver to Cancun: Ashlie's Cancun Blog and Other Stuff

26 May, 2011 10:21  Erin Erin

ashlie cancun I am a proud Vancouverite from Canada that has been living “la vida loca” in Cancun, Mexico since 1995. I speak Spanish fluently and I am married to a Mexicano. I love experiencing new things from travelling afar to just a few kilometres away to checking out the latest restaurants/clubs etc. - I am there! 

Adventure-seeker should have been my middle name. I am a foodie, amateur photographer and wannabe writer. I am the administrator of 3 websites www.ranchseeker.com and www.yogiseeker.com and www.spaseeker.com (we are almost ready to launch!) and an aspiring Social Media Marketing guru

I am fortunate to have great friends and a great family both in Cancun and Vancouver.

Last but not least I have 2 very different cats that keep me laughing and on my toes.

De Paris à Seattle: Carnets de deux expats à Seattle

05 May, 2011 08:47  Erin Erin

ferry seattle luicJe m'appelle Loïc, je suis français, ex-Parisien et maintenant expatrié dans la ville d'émeraude: Seattle.

1. Pourquoi êtes-vous partis à l'étranger ?
Je me suis expatrié pour une raison toute simple: ma femme a décroché un post-doc dans un labo à Seattle. En fait, c'est un peu plus compliqué que cela puisqu'à l'époque, ce n'était pas encore ma femme, et il a donc fallu se décider très vite! La question de rester en France ne se posait pas vraiment, alors un mariage Rock&Roll plus tard, nous avons sauté dans l'avion.

Il se trouve que cela faisait aussi un moment que je souhaitais vivre à l'étranger pendant une période de temps longue, pour faire une expérience qui sorte un peu de l'ordinaire. Cela m'en a donné l'occasion!
