Ep 49: Guest: Karl: From the UK to Denmark

November 12th, 2018

00:0000:00

 

Originally from the UK, Karl discusses how he found himself in Denmark, the experiences of his first year and how music helped him to feel at home in his adopted country. He chose The National’s “Trouble Will Find Me” album from 2013 as a jumping off point to discuss the ups and downs of his transition into expat life in Denmark. In the interview Karl briefly mentions his current studies and internship at Sleeknote,which “helps small e-commerce shops and big online retails engage website visitors—without hurting the user experience” and he wanted to share this Sleeknote scholarship with all of you. Thank you for spreading the word about this wonderful opportunity.

Ep 48: Steph: Me in Taiwan (blog); January 29, 2004 (recorded July 24, 2017)

November 4th, 2018

In this episode I read from a Me in Taiwan blog post I wrote on January 29, 2004 from Tainan, Taiwan and react to it so many years later on July 24, 2017 from where I was living in Shanghai, China. How to keep the creative fire going while teaching is a strong theme in this blog entry. My 2004 Taiwan self was reacting to the loss of creativity in my non-work time. My 2017 Shanghai self noticed that blog entry grumpiness was just me throwing a temper tantrum at my creativity going into teaching, instead of into my writing. It is amazing what you can realize with time, space and patience. I also ponder what to do after my current non-teaching job: do I teach again in the future and run the risk of losing my creative fire to the classroom again?

Would love to hear from you!

Pia and her family just recently left Shanghai, China after living here for two years. I have met some active expats in my life but Pia takes the cake on really living life the fullest. She explored China, worked and volunteered locally, all while raising two intelligent and worldly daughters. How did moving to the U.S. a few years ago help her to make this transition to living in China? Come have a listen to the answer to that question and more as we explore a blog of hers from this time period.

Many of us are promised things growing up in a certain culture and often those promises are never actualized. Jennifer is an American who had been to over 70 countries before moving to China to teach at an international school but that did not stop this home country disappointment from kicking in. In this episode she reads a poem that she wrote a bit after her first year in China to her father about these cultural promises. And as we often do in Expat Rewind, we spend quite a while unpacking what this poem and the frustration in it means to her now, what has changed since she wrote it and so much more.

Ep 41: Guest: Photographer Thomas Sandfield: Hong Kong 2012

It is with extreme delight that we welcome Thomas Sandfield to the podcast in this episode. I can not think of a more perfect person to start off our multi-media experiment with Expat Rewind. In season 1 we focused primarily on the written word but in season 2 and beyond we will expand out to many more mediums-including photography, which is what Thomas does all so well. Thomas is from Norway and has lived in Hong Kong since 2012. In fact, it is now where he calls home. Have a listen to how his photography from his first year in Hong Kong tells us about his expat experience there: the joys, the heartbreak and the cultural shifts.
