Having the Perfect House Date: The Expat Move and Apartment Hunt

What the very first thing every expat must handle when they move abroad? Figuring out where the hell to live. I vividly remember the first six weeks my husband and I lived in London. We found an Airbnb to crash at in Battersea that was fine, but the size of a closet. The apartment might as well have been on the moon, because it took forever to acclimate where I was. Who knew what a Battersea was, and why was the walk to Clapham so...

Confession of an Expat Hypochondriac

Something subtle always pushed me into action. Maybe a little pain in my abdomen, a short period of not feeling hungry or maybe just a never ending cold. I’d fly over to Google and start searching what was wrong. Was it cancer?! Oh no, do I have a debilitating thyroid problem? No, it has to be an allergy.

Should You Ever Stop Traveling?

The first time I ever left North America was when I was 21-years-old. To some that might sound like I was an old bat before I really was able to see the world, to others maybe a delicious look into traveling while young. About a decade later my country count has grown thirty-fold and I have no plans of stopping anytime soon. I’ve had to hunker down a little to have a little stability in both mind and body, but overall I’m glad that it...

Perks of Working Remotely as an Expat

Almost four years ago I made the big switch. I can’t believe it’s been that long since I started working from home, co-working spaces, coffee shops and friends’ kitchen tables. While I do miss office culture sometimes, the long and short term perks far outweigh the desire to live cube life again for now. I make a living, make my own hours and am able to live in a foreign city in part to my remote career choices. Plus, there’s lot of...
