Expat Experience: Sarah Coffey, Prague

Post Posted: Thu Sep 05, 2013 3:17 am

I’m a 35 year old woman who was born in England but spent part of my childhood/teenage years in the US. When I was 21 I moved to NY. I never really felt like I truly belonged in the US, though I have some wonderful friends from there. After so long, I wasn’t sure I fit in in the UK anymore either and really wanted to live in a foreign country for a long time, specifically in Europe. I’m a private piano teacher and classical singer and perform with a few choirs in Prague. I have a full time job at a University and 14 private piano students (children).

I moved to Prague in January of 2011 from New York. I had visited Czech Republic (after years of wanting to) in 2005 and fell in love with it. I loved the architecture and prevalence of classical music.

For the next 5 years I dreamt and talked about it. I was getting tired of life in NY; it was too stressful, busy, dirty, and I’d been living there for 12 years already. I visited Czech again in the summer of 2010 and found that I still loved it; I vowed that I would be living in Prague by the following summer and 6 months later I moved here.
