Emma Creese
Who are you?

As a travel-addicted dreamer - although it’s hard to tell from my developing English accent - I originate from New Zealand, also known as Aoteoroa, Middle Earth, Hobbitland or Land of the Long White Cloud. As a country, we are known as 'Kiwis'; not necessarily the small furry-skinned brown fruit, but named after a small flightless bird who lives in our forests.   more ...

Tudor Stanescu
Who are you?

Before moving to England the first time, I was a recent university graduate, working as a Data Analyst for a one of the largest grocery retailers in Canada. As a Commerce graduate which specialized in Marketing, as you can imagine I was not very fond of my position as a Data Analyst, a number driven and dry field of work, at least for me. I was very unhappy about my work situation. I was and still am very passionate about photography and dreamt about having the opportunity to travel and take photographs.   more ...

Brittney Strange
Who are you?

I'm Brittney Strange and I blog over at Life of an Expat Parent. I write mostly about parenting and relationships with a dash of expat living. I'm an Ohio girl and an unlikely expat living in England. I'm married to a Briton and have two little dual citizens, The Duchess (2 years old) and The Duke (4 months old). I've worked in youth homelessness prevention and education for nearly four years and am currently on maternity leave.

I started my blog in 2011 a few months after my daughter was born. I thought I had acclimatized to British culture really well until I was introduced to parenting children in a culture that wasn't my own.   more ...
