Expat Driving: Life in the Fast Lane

25 March, 2014 08:11  Erin Erin

Expat Driving There’s something few consider before moving to another country: driving or, more specifically, how important one’s mortality is versus one’s desire to (literally) hit the road. I speak from personal experience, having lived in the Greek capital of Athens for 5 years, although my observations could equally apply to many Eastern European countries, South America, Asia and Africa where, for the unsuspecting expat, driving can seem bonkers!

Navigating Transportation for The Move to America

05 March, 2014 07:56  Erin Erin

Molly recently joined her American husband in Ohio and is continuing to share tips on life abroad. At EasyExpat we provide the latest and greatest in Expat News and Resources, but sometimes a personal journey can best explain the unique challenges and triumphs involved in moving abroad. Meet Molly and follow along on her adventure in the Move to America with new posts on the 1st wednesday of every month.

Transportation Move to AmericaSince moving to the U.S. in October 2013, it has become very obvious that this is a car loving nation. Certainly from my experience (be it only in one area of America), it has become clear that if you want to get around, you have to drive.

If you do not, as I have come to find out, it makes for quite a difficult time when getting out and about as public transportation is not as widespread as it is in the UK.

Same language, different ball-game

Canadian American

Before moving to Canada the only consideration I gave to language was with regard to accent; I remembered hearing somewhere that Canadians had a softer accent than their neighbors across the border and I was relieved; easing in gently sounded like a good plan. I was coming from England so it wasn’t as though I was going to be unintelligible to anyone – or so I thought.

You say tomayto, I say tomahto

I ran into problems on day two. I was staying in a hotel with my husband while we looked for rental accommodation. I had a tiny cut on my finger that kept catching on things so, on my way out to dinner one evening, I asked at reception for a plaster. The young woman at the desk shot me a blank look and shifted uncomfortably in her chair before giving a little cough and asking if I'd like an elastic band.
