My name’s Alice and I’m a UK citizen living and working in Singapore. I’m a writer and full-time editor for a couple of Singapore-based publications.

I moved abroad in 2006 after my studies. I wanted to experience life in another country and I wanted to travel. I travelled for a few months in SE Asia. Then I got my TEFL certificate, moved to Taiwan and taught English in Taipei for a year. I changed to an editor’s job in 2007 – it’s what I had always wanted to do, and I’ve been doing it ever since – and stayed in Taipei until 2012.   more ...

Who are you?

Hello! My name is Kristina. I’m an American married to a southern gentleman named Clayton. Together, we have a beautiful daughter and another bundle of joy on the way.

Since my husband is in the U.S. Navy, we are on a path in life that will involve a lot of moving. And that is okay with me, because I love to travel and explore new places! So far, we’ve lived in Virginia and California. Now, we call Singapore home.

Inspired by my passion for writing and journalism experience, I decided to chronicle our life moving, living and traveling around the world at the blog My Traveling Troop. Feel free to swing by and explore the world with us!   more ...

Niki
Who are you?

I am a wife of 18 years and mother of three teenage boys, who range in age from 13 to nearly 17. I’m a U.S. citizen, but after marrying my Canadian husband, we lived in Montreal, Quebec for 17 years. My husband has been working in importing for nearly his whole career and the possibility of moving overseas has been something we’ve discussed off and on for years. In early 2010, the opportunity to move to Asia arose, and after a look-see trip and much discussion, we decided to move our family to Singapore. We arrived here in July of 2011.

I'm also a blogger and write a blog called Brave, or just crazy? where I discuss my life as an expat.   more ...

Where, when and why did you move abroad?

I moved to Singapore 2 years ago from London as my husband found a new job. I was desperate to leave the UK and managed to persuade him to consider moving abroad. I was fed up with the weather, the state of the economy and the high crime rate. Every time I turned on the news, there was a shooting or stabbing being reported. It was depressing.   more ...
