Expat Experience: Samantha Wei, Playas del Coco

Post Posted: Mon Jul 27, 2015 3:32 am





My name is Samantha Wei and I'm a mid 20's Asian-American from Olympia, Washington, USA.

I moved abroad August 2012 to Costa Rica. I moved purely for love. My boyfriend is Costa Rican and we had been long distance for two years and since at that time he didn't have a US visa, I decided to move down to be with him.

The biggest challenge I faced was leaving my friends and family behind. I had never lived abroad before, in fact the longest time I've ever been away from home was a month so this was a gigantic change for me. I was ready to move onto another stage of my life and to finally be with my boyfriend, but at the same time I love being with my family and spending time with them so to fly 4000 miles away was incredibly difficult...
