I first moved abroad in 1998, to take up a teaching job in Katowice, Poland. Since then I have had periods of living overseas in many different countries including Portugal, Syria, Tanzania, Sweden, Hong Kong and Egypt.

I returned back to England for seven years in my thirties. Then, six years ago, in 2011, I moved abroad again, this time with my husband and our three children, for my husband to start a job as an Assistant Principal at a school in Stockholm. Since then we have lived as an expat family in Sweden, Tanzania and now Kenya.

De Espa├▒a a Alemania: My Expat World

02 October, 2017 10:27  Erin Erin

My Expat World Hola. Mi nombre es Hor, soy Española y desde hace casi cuatro años vivo en Düsseldorf, Alemania.

1. ¿Por qué se fue al extranjero?
Siempre he sido muy inquieta, me gusta viajar, aprender idiomas, conocer nuevas culturas… Por lo que en cuanto acabé mis estudios decidí buscar trabajo fuera de mi país. Tras varias experiencias en el extranjero la vida, mejor dicho, una oportunidad profesional me trajo aquí y desde entonces (más de 3 años han pasado ya) vivo en Alemania.

2. ¿Cómo se gana la vida?
Trabajo en el área de Marketing Online para una empresa alemana.

Me gusta mi trabajo. Lo que más me gusta es los horarios de trabajo alemanes (En este país se sale de trabajar entre las 17.00-18.00 horas, lo que me permite tener bastante tiempo para mis amigos y mis hobbies) y las facilidades que se les da a los trabajadores para seguir desarrollándose profesionalmente.

From Seattle to Andalucia: Christine in Spain

18 September, 2017 09:58  Erin Erin

Christine in spain I’m Christine, a proud Seattleite (Seattle, WA, U.S.A.) and now an adopted Española, living in Andalucia, Spain.

1. Why did you move abroad?
I studied abroad in Greece the summer going into my senior year of college and fell head-over-heels in love with travel. The history, the food, the culture, and how everything was so completely foreign to me evolved into absolute wanderlust. Naturally, after such a life-changing experience, long-term travel wasn’t something I could imagine putting off until retirement. The two-week vacation culture in the United States is suffocating, and I felt that if I could make travel a priority while I was still young, it would be the best decision I could make for myself.



From Florida to Scotland: Cheers Blondie

11 September, 2017 08:45  Erin Erin

Cheers BlondieMy name is Ashley and I am originally a Florida girl, but made Washington, DC my home. I moved to Scotland two years ago, due to a thing called love, and started Cheers Blondie to share my adventures and unique outlook on living and working abroad.

1.    Why did you move abroad?
I was swept away by a Scottish stud, who is now my husband! We met in Washington, DC and he’s originally from St Andrews, Scotland. He had been in the states for several years and wanted to move back. I let the accent influence me and packed my bags and moved to Edinburgh!

2.    How do you make a living?
I work in client services for a creative agency. It wasn’t an easy transition from DC to Edinburgh in regard to work, but I have been lucky to find the opportunities I have and be able to continue my career abroad and have some money to live on (always a positive).

Wandering Expat Family Hi! My name is Julz, I am born in Denmark, but grew up in France. At the moment I live with my husband and 2 kiddos on the east coast of Mauritius.

1.    Why did you move abroad?
I chose to study Hotel Management and when I graduated, I started to travel where I fancied to go working. When I got married and our little girl came we decided to move to the Middle East where the lifestyle would allow me to stay at home and look after her and then the little brother as well. A few countries later that’s still our lifestyle today.  

2.    How do you make a living?
My husband is the one bringing the money home - same trade as me! When the kids are a bit bigger I might start working again. For the moment I enjoy the time I can spend with them.
