A Caribbean chica from the spice isle Grenada, I lived in the UK for 12 years, and now (as of October 2015) call Lima, Peru home. Pelican Tales is about life in Lima, discovering the food, culture, language, history and more, and about adventures travelling through South America while I'm here.
Chile Living Today is about what it is like to really live life as Chileans do, and not as an expat living within an expat community. We live, work, travel and play as part of the greater Chilean society. Our travel covers everything from Arica in the north to Chiloe in the south, from the 4000+ miles of Pacific coastline to the interior of the Andes Mountains. Chile has an old and amazing culture, and readers have the opportunity to explore and feel the flavors of Chilean life without having to leave the comforts of home... although visitors are always welcome to Chilean shores!
About my bicycle journey from San Francisco to Salvador Bahia with Mestre Acordeon and ten more Capoeiristas. I now live in Salvador and continue to write about my experiences in Brazil.
On June 2012, I made a difficult decision to leave the United States to start a new life in Cordoba Argentina. This blog comes complete with personal experiences, photos, videos, cultural comparisons, and tips to make the transition of living abroad a bit easier.
This blog is about our story of moving to the real estate project of Las Olas Ecuador, from Mauritius to Ecuador. Located on the coast of the Pacific ocean, Las Olas is an eco-community that encompasses a myriad of amenities, including a championship golf course in Ecuador, a 10-court tennis club, an equestrian center, a beach club with spa, restaurants and fitness center, a 650-acre private nature reserve, a health clinic, shops, and a magnificent beach.
Bilingual English-Spanish blog on weekend plans, tips, and thoughts on living abroad based on my experience. Whether you just got to Peru or have been here for long, if you have kids this is for you. I grew up as an expat kid, and I'm now also an expat mom of 2. Born in Madrid and raised abroad, terms like relocation, adapting and new culture have been part of my vocabulary and day to day ever since I can remember. I've lived in different cities within Spain, the US, with my parents based in places like Germany or Virginia once I got older.
Relocating from the U.S. to Ecuador. This will chronicle our adventures (and misadventures) as we learn to live in a foreign country. "The worst day in Ecuador is better than the best day at work."

The story of me, a 20 year-old Welsh boy and the year of my life which took me to Chile. I share my knowledge of Chile, tips for travelling and the wealth of incredible stories you can come away with having spent time in this magical country on the edge of the world.
No Longer Native is an expat blog from an American couple living in Bogotá, Colombia. Our blog is a journal containing our travels, cultural musings and bits of our everyday life. We also want this to be a resource for others facing the same life change. In May of 2014 we packed up everything we didnt give away and moved to Bogotá, Colombia. Since then we have been learning Spanish, exploring our new city, and figuring out how we can keep this thing going as long as possible.
The blog was sparked by my thesis research on Americans living in Buenos Aires. It includes some of the results and interesting ideas that came up in my research (the difference between "expat" and "immigrant", globalization and urbanization, what type of Americans move abroad and why they do it, what life is like for expats in Buenos Aires). I am expanding the blog to focus not just on Buenos Aires, but on all global cities, and not just on Americans, but on all individuals that move abroad to urban destinations.
The author was working as a management consultant in London until July 2014, when she exchanged the fog to the smog of wintery Lima. If settling into a new country is like getting used to a new pair of shoes, in her case those have been running shoes. Getting to know the pavements and cerros of Lima and further afield before the sun rise, has brought many friends, adventures and much needed respite from the citys daily chaos. This in turn has led to, if not more frequent, at least less frustrated blog posts about another foreign transplants life in Peru. Her dream is to take part in one of this countrys spectacular ultra marathons and live to blog the tale.
