14 March, 2016 22:10  Erin Erin

from home to there Stéphanie, Française, j’habite à Chicago USA depuis Mai 2015.

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

Pourquoi pas?! Je suis mariée avec un Américain, ce qui me donne cette possibilité géniale de pouvoir vivre en Europe et aux USA, donc il faut en profiter. Mon mari s’est inscrit dans un programme d’études, et j’en avait un peu marre de la France, pas de travail fixe, pas de projets.


From the USA to the Netherlands: A Wanderlust For Life

07 March, 2016 08:50  Erin Erin

A Wanderlust For Life I’m Jessica from the United States and my husband and I  moved to Amsterdam in the fall of 2014 to pursue our dream of living in Europe!

1. Why did you move abroad?
When I was a teenager, my grandparents took me to Europe. I loved it. It was something that stuck with me for years until I went on a college class trip with my (now) husband and he fell in love with it too. We spent years figuring out how to make it happen and then we finally made the leap across the Atlantic!


From Canada to Venezuela to China: Steph's Travel, Climbing and the TEFL Life

29 February, 2016 12:15  Erin Erin

steph's: travel, climbing and the tefl life My name is Steph, I was born in Canada but grew up in Venezuela. I have lived in several countries, and at the moment find myself working in China.

1. Why did you move abroad?
With a Venezuelan father and a British mother visiting family meant getting on a plane or car and traveling. And we did this as often as we could. My parents had also a sense of adventure, and they highlighted the importance of getting to know other cultures, the experience of living in different countries, as well as traveling within the country you live in. For me, packing up and moving seems like the natural thing to do.


From India to Canada to Japan: Sun and Squalor

22 February, 2016 10:30  Erin Erin

sun and squalor Hello! I’m Melissa. I was born in Bombay, India and moved at the tender young age of 14 to the wintery, frostbitten land of Canada where I spent my angst-ridden teenage years trying to overcome culture shock and alienation.

So now that I’m 29, it only made sense to skip town for some time and head over to the Land of the Rising Sun where I now spend my time trying to make the best of myself. I currently reside in Japan.

1. Why did you move abroad?
I never felt truly connected to my adopted country (Canada) and found it more or less stifling to think that, that was where I would perish. Being a true escapist and harbouring delusions of grandeur, I wanted to do more than just go on vacation. I wanted to re-experience having to adapt to another culture without the emotional baggage. I knew ​moving to Japan  would be a fulfilling experience in the sense that I would learn to appreciate all cultures, including Canada without bias. Honestly, I just wanted to right all the wrongs I did when I first moved to Canada before starting a new chapter in my life.

3rd Culture Wife Hi, I’m Breana and I live on the sunny Dutch Caribbean island of Sint Maarten! My husband, Ben, and I moved here from Phoenix, Arizona.

1. Why did you move abroad?
My husband decided to attend medical school as an international student in the Caribbean. We eventually want to move to Africa, where he was born, but this is a great place to start our expat adventures! After all, who wouldn’t want to spend a few years on a tropical island?


From Toronto to South Korea: Elaina's Lane

08 February, 2016 09:44  Erin Erin

nadine elaineMy name is Nadine, but I also answer to my middle name Elaina, which sparked my site Elainaslane. I moved to South Korea in February 2013 and I still love it!

1.    Why did you move abroad?
I’ve always wanted to travel around the world, but the job I held at the time could hardly afford me to buy a bus ticket never-mind buy a plane ticket out of the country. So, I decided the best way to travel was for me to live and work abroad.  


From New Zealand to Spain: Migrating Miss

01 February, 2016 09:20  Erin Erin

Migrating Miss I’m Sonja and I write as Migrating Miss. I’m originally from New Zealand, but I’ve lived in the United States, Canada, Australia and Scotland, and I’ve just moved to Spain!  

1. Why did you move abroad?
I started out in the AFS International Exchange program at high school, when I applied to go to the United States and attend high school there. Living abroad gives me the chance to experience daily life in another country, not just skim the surface by taking a holiday.  


From Cambridge to Toronto: Brown Bear Travels

25 January, 2016 10:37  Erin Erin

brown bear travels We’re Emma and Stewart from Cambridge, England now living in Toronto, Canada. We like chocolate, pizza and our foster cats. Since living in Toronto, we’ve discovered a liking for poutine and beaver tails, whilst also developing a keener appreciation for the coming of Spring!

1.    Why did you move abroad?
We love travelling and liked the idea of living somewhere else for a bit and really getting to experience a new way of life so we looked into Working Holiday visas. The options were limited really to Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Canada offered lots of things we like when going on holiday: the great outdoors, mountains, lakes and wildlife with the added advantage of being that bit closer to home. Every single person we know who has visited raved about it, so we always knew we’d have a great time.

From the UK to the Netherlands: I Wander and Roam

11 January, 2016 08:26  Erin Erin

I Wander & Roam amsterdam My name is Claire and I’m from the UK. I left the UK in May 2014 before moving to the beautiful city of Amsterdam which I currently call home.

1.    Why did you move abroad?
When I decided to leave the UK I had been running my own vintage shop for around four years and whilst it was an amazing experience it wasn’t always easy to find time to travel. I knew I wanted a change from the UK and having always felt at home in Madrid moving there was an easy decision to make.  I fell in love with city:  the sunshine, the slower pace of life, the people, the food the wine… but had also recently fallen for a Dutch guy. After a bit of back-and-forthing between Amsterdam and Madrid (& Stockholm), I decided to make the move back to the rainy skies of Northern Europe .
