From Morocco to the Netherlands to Germany: Little Origin

26 February, 2018 10:17  Erin Erin

Little Origin GermanyMy name is Essma, I was born in Morocco, moved with my family to The Netherlands in ’85 and in 2014 I moved with my husband and daughter to Germany where we still live. Our son is born here and made our family complete!

1.    Why did you move abroad?
We’ve moved to Frankfurt because my husband was offered a job here.

2.    How do you make a living?
I used to be a primary school teacher in my native country (The Netherlands). Here in Frankfurt it is very heard to continue my work in the same way as I did. The reason for this was that my level of speech has to be C2 and since it’s quite challenging to achieve that, I was forced to find another job to keep myself busy. Now I work as a Dutch Trainer on a freelance base and next to that I work on my blog and love photography.

From Toronto to Düsseldorf: Life in Düsseldorf

05 February, 2018 08:59  Erin Erin

Life in DusseldorfMy name is Jenna Davis, I am a 26-year-old Canadian expat originally from Toronto, Ontario and now living in Düsseldorf, Germany.

1. Why did you move abroad?
I moved abroad for a reason that many other expats around the world might also be familiar to. I moved for love. I met my (German) husband almost 6 years ago while I was backpacking across South Africa during my very first press trip as an international travel blogger (I’ve now visited more than 50 countries). Two years later, I decided to make the big leap, quitting my marketing job in the city and moving to Germany to see how our relationship would blossom. So far, so good!

From London to Bulgaria: Bulgarian Slivatree

29 January, 2018 09:21  Erin Erin

Bulgarian Slivatree Hello Everybody,
May I introduce myself? My name is Martin, originally from London and now living a better life in the City of Yambol in Southeast Bulgaria. I have been with my lovely Bulgarian partner Galia since meeting her in 2006.

1. Why did you move abroad?
The main reasons were to escape from the UK and move to a place that suited my ideals. Namely, living economically without being suppressed by materialistic wants and living a life without waste away from a throwaway society. My ideals are akin to the way of life for most Bulgarians in Bulgaria albeit my choice and opposed to no choice for many Bulgarians.

Elena San FranciscoHello, my name is Elena, also known as FromParistoSF on social media. I was born in Paris, France, and I moved to San Francisco, Bay Area five years ago to fulfill a dream.

1.    Why did you move abroad?
My husband and I moved together to the Bay Area because we were sharing a common dream, living and working in the United States. He was the one who got a job here, so it made it easier for us to come.

From London to Toronto: I Spy Pretty Places

15 January, 2018 10:30  Erin Erin

I spy pretty placesVan, I'm from London, England and I am currently living in Toronto.

1. Why did you move abroad?
Originally in search of a different lifestyle with better work-life balance.

2. How do you make a living?
I work in Education. In previous countries I have worked in international schools. In Canada, I haven't found work as a teacher but in a related field.  It's always an adjustment working in a new country. Employment practices don't always match up with what you are used to back home. I've always enjoyed getting to know the families I have worked with and the children have just been amazing. Children are children no matter where they are in the world.
