From Manchester to USA to Singapore: It's Lynny Kansas

31 January, 2013 08:03  Erin Erin

My family its lynny kansas My name is Lynn, but a number of years ago, thanks to a “Dorothy” Halloween costume I wore one year, my friends daughter started calling me Lynny Kansas, it kind of stuck - hence the name of my blog, It’s Lynny Kansas.  Not everyone calls me Lynny Kansas, but I do get called Lynny a lot which I don’t mind and actually kind of like.  As my Mum always used to say, as long as you don’t call me late for my supper, you can call me whatever you like!

I originally hail from Manchester, in the North West of England, I spent 17 years living in the USA, but now reside in hot and steamy Singapore.

1. Why did you move abroad?
My first move abroad was in 1994 when my husband took a 3 year secondment job in Connecticut in the USA.  This turned into 6 years, by which time we decided we didn’t really want to move back to the UK as we had acclimatized to the USA lifestyle (and weather).  My husband changed jobs, and we spent a further 11 years living in Virginia, USA,  before a promotion with his Company brought us out to Singapore in 2011. (More)

A la fin de mon stage, j’ai décidé de rester vivre à Zürich…

Von Berlin nach Nikosia: Aphrodites Schatten

17 January, 2013 10:47  Erin Erin

Aphrodites Shade - © CIPS/Marcos Gittis Mein Name ist Christiane Sternberg. Ich bin Berlinerin und lebe jetzt in Nikosia. Zusammen mit meinem Mann, dem Fotografen Marcos Gittis.

1. Warum bist du ins Ausland umgezogen?
Um eine lange Geschichte kurz zu erzählen: Zu der Zeit, als es in Zypern für uns als Journalisten besonders spannend war, haben wir uns mit einem Fuß hier niedergelassen (2003 Öffnung der Grenzen nach fast 30 Jahren, 2004 gescheitertes Referendum zur Wiedervereinigung, Beitritt der Republik Zypern zur EU). Wir lebten jeweils ein paar Monate in Zypern, dann in Berlin und wieder retour. Auf Dauer geht das natürlich nicht. Irgendwann mussten wir uns entscheiden – und deshalb zogen wir 2006 endgültig nach Zypern.

From Philadelphia to Argentina: Seashells and Sunflowers

10 January, 2013 09:24  Erin Erin

seashells and sunflowers katie My name is Katie Metz, and I’m a yanqui (Argentine slang for an American) from Philadelphia living in Necochea, Argentina.  I’ve called this small seaside city home for the last four years.

1. Why did you move abroad?
I met my Argentine boyfriend (now husband) Daniel six years ago. After maintaining a long-distance romance for two and half years, we finally decided that for the benefit of our relationship, one of us would need to make the leap into the unknown. For personal reasons, we decided that it would be easier for me to move to Argentina than for Daniel to move to the United States, particularly since he’s involved in his family’s business. I moved to Necochea, a coastal city of 68,000 inhabitants in the province of Buenos Aires, back in March 2009.

Di Italia a Panama: Vado a Panama

07 January, 2013 11:12  Erin Erin

Vado a Panama coupleQuante di quelle volte avete sentito dire da qualcuno “lascio il lavoro, mollo tutto e cambio vita”

Beh! semplicemente noi siamo due di quelli che, oltre a dirlo, lo hanno anche fatto. Non solo, lo continuiamo a fare!

Io Sono Flavio e lei, mia moglie,  Pilar.

1. Perché ti sei trasferito all'estero?
La nostra è stata una scelta diciamo anomala.  Nel 90 decidemmo di tagliare I ponti e andarcene a vivere in giro per il mondo in barca a vela.  Come tutte le belle favole hanno un inizio e una fine, così dopo dieci anni di girovagare per Caraibi e America Latina a bordo della nostra barca la cassa di bordo iniziò a piangere; eravamo a Panama e qui inizia la nostra nuova vita di imprenditori (piccolini) con un ristorante a Bocas Del Toro. Da lì poi viene tutto il resto.

1. Why did you move abroad?

I moved abroad when my husband was hired by a company in London. Even though it meant giving up my career as a high school history teacher for a few years, I knew we had to take this opportunity to live abroad. I had always dreamed of traveling around the world, and this was my chance to do that!
