From Chicago to London: Escapist Atlas

26 October, 2015 11:48  Erin Erin

Escapist Artist My name is Jeremy and I’m originally from Chicago, Illinois. Currently I live in London with my fiancé. We both moved about a year ago and have been exploring and getting to know the city and country
ever since.

1. Why did you move abroad?
I've wanted to live abroad since I was around 19 and did a study abroad program.  It sounds cliche, but it really developed my interest for travel and exploration.  After graduating from college and working in Chicago for a while, I saw that some companies opened up opportunities to move people internally all over the world.  I knew that I wanted to do that.

From England to Singapore: MR E in Singapore

19 October, 2015 09:38  Erin Erin

MR E Singapore Hi, I’m Jason, alternatively known as Mr E thanks to my job. I’m originally from Dartford in England. I moved to Singapore in August 2014 with my partner.

1. Why did you move abroad?
I was 29 when I moved here, living with parents and having struggled for the previous 5 years to make any significant progress in saving for a deposit. With teachers in the UK being hit year on year with a pay freeze (now entering its fifth year), and the cost of living ever increasing I began looking for alternative options. A few interviews passed and a few months later I had flight booking confirmed and the move was on!

From the USA to Canada to the Netherlands: Diary of an Urban Housewife

12 October, 2015 11:09  Erin Erin

urban housewife amsterdam Hi! I’m Kate, an American expat currently living in Amsterdam, Netherlands. We are fairly nomadic as we have moved around quite a bit having lived in 8 different cities in the U.S. before moving to Vancouver, B.C. in Canada to give the whole “expat” thing a try, once we realized we liked it we knew Europe was next!

1. Why did you move abroad?
We moved abroad for my husbands work. He is a video game producer (every little boys dream haha) , so when one project ends we usually move, well when his project ended in Canada I said I would only move again if we went to Europe...it had always been my dream to live in Europe and get the opportunity to show our daughter Europe.

From Arizona to Dublin: Desert to Dublin

05 October, 2015 10:52  Erin Erin

desert to Dublin I am Megan of Desert to Dublin and my family of five (seven, if counting the labradoodles) has recently relocated from Tucson, Arizona, USA, to Dublin, Ireland.

1. Why did you move abroad?
Our decision to move abroad was prompted by a need for a lifestyle change.  Roughly a year ago the travel demands my husband was facing at work had become overwhelming for all.  We reflected on a time and place where we’d been happier as a family and concluded our time spent in Melbourne, Australia, as expats nearly a decade ago, had been our ideal arrangement.  After arriving at this realization, my husband began applying for a variety of phd programs, and though domestic programs were also explored, it was ultimately UC Dublin that most caught our attention.  After all options were presented and discussed as a family (children included), we determined Dublin was the right path for us.

From Michigan to Rio de Janeiro: My Quarter Life Epiphany

28 September, 2015 10:30  Erin Erin

Quarter life crisis brazil Hi! I’m Steph, originally from the tiny town of Lowell, Michigan. Now I live in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil since October 2015, and before that was in Bangkok, Thailand for 2 years.

1. Why did you move abroad?
I didn’t really move abroad, I just never left. I had taken a one week vacation for my first overseas trip to Thailand, and fell in love with the country and decided to make a new life there. So I stayed, based in Bangkok for 2 years while I traveled throughout Southeast Asia.
For the move to Rio, my fiancé and I decided we’d like to try something new. We wanted to move away from the concrete jungle and live somewhere with more nature. He received an offer to work for the 2016 Olympics, so we moved to Zona Sul of Rio de Janeiro.

From California to Perth: Chantae Was Here

21 September, 2015 08:32  Erin Erin

Chantae I’m Chantae, a Californian currently living in Perth, Western Australia. Perth happens to be the most isolated city in the world so it truly is the wild wild west living out here and kangaroos outnumber people in terms of population.

1. Why did you move abroad?

I’ve always been open to living somewhere new, I was just never sure where! When I first met my German partner, he had plans to complete his PhD in Western Australia. Meanwhile, I had plans to travel the world. In between dodging visa issues in Europe, I visited him in Australia. I ended up liking the remoteness and adventurous lifestyle that I relocated to here a few months after my official visit. I’ve been here for two years and have loved it ever since!

From UK to Kuwait to Greece: Olive, Feta and Ouzo

14 September, 2015 08:01  Erin Erin

Amanda SettleHi, I’m Amanda Settle. A British expat, a bit of a nomad we’ve lived in Kuwait, Dubai, Qatar and are now in a small village on the Greek island of Rhodes. Living with my husband and our rescue animals: 1 cat from Dubai, 2 cats from Qatar and dog we’ve rescued here.

1. Why did you move abroad?
I left the UK for work and a better life. I was teaching in London, the money was barely enough to live on and I didn’t have time to actually have a life. There was no respect for my profession by the students, parents, management of the school system or society as a whole.

I’d always wanted to travel more and decided to just go for it. I had no idea when I got on the plane to Kuwait what it would be like and if I’d be on the next flight home. 9 years on and I’m hooked.
