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.

What I Wish I had Known Before The Move to America

05 February, 2014 08:54  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.

What i wish I had known move to america Since I moved to America (October 4th 2013 was the day), I have been thinking about what I wish I had known before The Move to America. This was partly caused by the arctic weather (care of the polar vortex that froze parts of the U.S.).

This may sound odd as what does incredibly cold and dangerous weather conditions have to do with thinking about preparations for a big move? Well, it was because I had never experienced such weather extremes that I began to think about how I could better prepare for the winters here - which led me to think about preparations in general - long winded, I know, but bear with me!

10 Tips for Living in a Developing Country

28 January, 2014 07:45  Erin Erin

Tips for living in a Developing Country We moved from a pretty idyllic, ‘normal’ life in Australia to Ghana, West Africa. Crazy? Perhaps. But it has been a pretty extraordinary adventure. For the first year we lived on a mine site in rural Ghana. Now we split our time between the mine and Kumasi, the second city of Ghana. We’ve experienced a culture very different to our own, seen lives and expectations and circumstances that you could never experience from a book or documentary.

While living in a developing country can be a very rewarding experience, it can also be exhausting, stressful and just plain tedious. Whether you are thinking about making the leap, or have already done so, here are some things to consider.
