De Lille à Cascais : La vie au Portugal

17 May, 2018 08:00  Expat Interviews Expat Interviews

Luisa-paixao.com: A la rencontre de Sr Nuno et des artisans vanniers du village d'AldeiaNous sommes un couple franco-portugais. Nous nous sommes rencontrés en France et y avons passé plus de 20 ans de notre vie commune avec des séjours fréquents au Portugal. Nous habitions dans le Nord de la France, à Lille et vivons maintenant à Cascais au Portugal depuis 1 an.

1. Pourquoi êtes-vous partis à l'étranger ?

Notre vie en France ne nous convenait plus et une décision professionnelle était à prendre. Nos enfants sont désormais autonomes et peuvent choisir leur vie. Nous avons donc décidé de reconstruire une vie complète à l’étranger et le Portugal s’est imposé tout naturellement en raison des attaches que nous y avions.

From Indonesia to Russia: Sightseer's Diary

14 May, 2018 13:38  Erin Erin

Sightseer's Diary My name is Eva. I was born in an exotic country, where you can find coconut trees everywhere – Indonesia. Then I moved to a faraway country covered in snow in the winter – Russia. This is my fourth year living in Moscow, the capital city that will soon be the host of the world's most exciting event – the FIFA World Cup 2018!  

1.    Why did you move abroad?
My husband is one of the reasons I moved to Russia. We both decided to live and work hard in Russia first, then maybe in the future, once he has more resources, we shall move to a warm, sunny country. The other reason I moved was because I wanted to learn Russian. I am a language lover and living in Russia is a great opportunity for me to learn something new.

From the UK to Cape Town to Nairobi: The Expat Mummy

07 May, 2018 08:45  Erin Erin

Expat Mummy I am Nadine Murphy. I’m a British mum living in Nairobi, Kenya… though I’ve just come from living in Cape Town for 6 years.

1.    Why did you move abroad?
I moved to Cape Town to be with my husband who had a great expatriate job opportunity. My first child was just 3 months old and the assignment was just to be two years.  We thought it a great opportunity to be able to spend time just being a mum. Our twins were born 12 months later and we ended up staying in Cape Town. After 6 years my husband was offered the dream chance to open his own office in Kenya and we jumped at the chance to experience more of Africa.

L’envie de voir ailleurs ! Nous aurions pu partir n’importe où mais mon conjoint a décroché le job de ses rêves ici à Portsmouth.

From Canada to Bali: Healing Pilgrim

23 April, 2018 08:07  Erin Erin

Amit Healing Pilgrim Hello! My name is Amit and I’m originally from Montreal, Canada. I’ve lived in Bali, Indonesia since 2011.

1.    Why did you move abroad?
I never consciously decided to move overseas; least of all to the other side of the world. Two years after surviving a near-death accident while traveling around Asia in 2009, I had returned to Asia when I took a brief detour to Bali. I’d heard about the recoveries that others had made with the help of traditional healers, natural remedies, local massage practitioners and intense yoga practice. So I came to pursue further physical healing; but I also stayed on to care for my mind and spirit as well.

From Maine to Brazil to UAE back to the USA: Whole-hearted Traveler

16 April, 2018 08:25  Erin Erin

http://www.blogexpat.com/en/dir/usa/blog/wholeheartedtraveler.com/ My name is Stacey and I am from Maine.  I moved abroad to work as an international teacher.  I lived in Brazil, Senegal, Argentina, and the U.A.E. After 10 years, overseas, I returned to the U.S.  and have been going through the transition of repatriation.

1.    Why did you move abroad?
I moved back to the U.S. because I wanted to make a career change and obtain a master’s degree.  I was very sad to leave my expat life behind and return to the U.S. so I decided to move to a new city. That way it would still feel new and exciting and I could still explore new places.  I choose to move to Austin, Texas which turned out to be great, perhaps too great!  Right away I meet my now partner which has been awesome however he wanted to get his Ph.D. and we ended up moving to a Denton, which is a small college town in Texas.

This has been an interesting move for me, although I am accustomed to moving in the past all the decision we’re mine because I was single.   Now I have moved because of another person’s purpose to a not so exotic place to live.

De la France aux Etats Unis : Paris San Francisco

29 March, 2018 08:00  Expat Interviews Expat Interviews

Paris San Francisco - ChristelleBonjour à tous, je m'appelle Christelle et il y a un peu plus d’un an j'ai quitté Paris pour la Californie.

1. Pourquoi êtes-vous partis à l'étranger ?

Mon mari travaillait à Paris pour le bureau français d'une entreprise américaine qui lui a proposé nouveau poste à San Francisco. Nous avons bien sûr sauté sur l'occasion, d'autant qu'elle nous offrait un accompagnement pour les visas, le permis de travail, etc. Un vrai plus qu'on on sait la complexité du système américain !
