De Per├║ a Rep├║blica Checa: Sometimes it's Hard to be a Woman

15 December, 2011 10:28  Erin Erin

hard to be a woman Me llamo Lis Fajardo soy de nacionalidad peruana y vivo en la República Checa desde el año 2000. Soy una profesional en el área de las Relaciones Públicas y Comunicación social, madre de dos hijos maravillosos Jaroslav de 12 años e Isabella de 2 años y felizmente casada por segunda vez con un hombre maravilloso de nacionalidad inglesa.

1. ¿Por qué se fue al extranjero?
Antes de llegar a la República Checa viví en Costa Rica 3 años, fui a visitar a mis primos y Tíos que residen desde hace mucho tiempo por alla en la capital San José, eso en el año 1997, allí conocí a mi primer esposo que era de nacionalidad checa y de esa relación nació mi hijo Jaroslav (que ahora ya tiene 12 aHos) viviamos en un lugar maravilloso llamado Playa Sámara, en la provincia de Nicoya, teníamos una casita alquilada frente al mar y  todo parecía ideal, pero lamentablemente al nacer mi hijo, nos dimos cuenta que Sámara no tenía mucho que ofrecer en términos de educación, así que después de meditar detenidamente el futuro de la familia, decidimos mudarnos a la República Checa, cuando mi hijo tenía solo 13 meses.

From Utah to Oxfordshire: A Quick Succession of Busy Nothings

12 December, 2011 10:34  Erin Erin

A Quick Succession of Busy Nothings portraitHi I’m Kris from “A Quick Succession of Busy Nothings” blog. I’m an American from Utah, but now living in a little stone cottage in rural Oxfordshire, England.

1. Why did you move abroad?
My husband has always dreamed of working for a Formula One race car team. On a whim, he applied for a job opening with Williams Grand Prix.  We couldn't believe it when they flew him over for an interview, and then offered him a position as a CFD Aerodynamicist.  Even though he had just started his masters degree, and  we had just purchased our first home only
six months previous to this, we chose to drop everything and pack our bags for England.

From Melbourne to the UK: Gidday from the UK

05 December, 2011 09:46  Erin Erin

Gidday from the UK I am a 42 year old sheila who, having spent my formative years in parts of Australia that have been subjected to savage bushfires, cyclones with innocuous-sounding names or have recently been under water, moved from Melbourne to the UK in January 2004.

I spend my time people-watching, reading, eating, baking, blogging and reprioritising chores after all of these things. I’ve recently moved to North London (after almost 8 years south of the river) so I’m also excited about exploring a brand new (to me anyway) neighbourhood.

1. Why did you move abroad?
I think F Scott Fitzgerald would call it ‘restless discontent’. An overtly successful life with all the trappings hid a deep, deep dissatisfaction and moving to London was quite a ‘toys out of the pram’ moment to see which were the things that really mattered to me. Needless to say I kept those things in mind as I rebuilt my life here.

28 November, 2011 09:36  Erin Erin

elka kids Saigon Why Am I Here Xin chao! My name is Elka Ray. I was born in the UK, grew up in Canada and have spent the past 16 years living in Vietnam.

1. Why did you move abroad?
After high school, I backpacked around Southeast Asia for six months. I was 18 years old, blonde, totally clueless, and lucky to have survived! But I loved it. After doing a degree in Journalism and Asian Studies I moved to Vietnam “for one year” as I wanted to learn more about the country. At that time, Vietnam had only recently reopened to foreigners.

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.

working berlin mum My name's Sarah but I also have two other persona's: 'Miss Bea' for my jewellery business and vintage fashion blog and 'Workingberlinmum' for my personal blog.

1. Why did you move abroad?
I used to work in theater and one of my jobs brought me to Berlin for 12 weeks. After 3 weeks of being here I decided I simply had to live here. Having lived in London for 7 years and being surrounded by people from all cultures and countries, many of whom could speak a number of languages, I always wanted to learn another language and to experience living somewhere else of then England and Berlin felt like the perfect place.

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)!
