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.

Meet Molly and follow along on her adventure in the Move to America.

shipping move to america I know that one of the greatest stresses in the build up to becoming an expat is the huge task of sorting through your belongings and shipping what you need to your new home. I by no means had it all wonderfully organised, but I did have a system which I stuck to, and it got me through. I will share what I did, in the hope of helping anybody else who is about to go through the same thing.

Entrepreneurship for the Trailing Spouse

31 December, 2013 11:00  Erin Erin

Trailing SpouseIf you are a trailing spouse (wife in particular) then you probably have experienced something along these lines.

Got excited about moving to a new country thinking how great it would be to get to know their culture, learn the language and make friends with the locals.

Had to leave your job, whether it is one you loved or not, thinking that it’s an opportunity of a life time to take such a long and well paid (by your other half) break.

Arrived, settled in, after initial excitement found yourself hanging out with other expats, speaking English, even if it’s not your first language. The new language turned out to be impossible to even get a grasp of and for some odd reason those locals simply doesn’t notice you. Hmm...
