Episode 40: A Canadian Expat in Bath

The Baths - Bath

Around 60 AD, the Romans built Bath in what is now the United Kingdom. Ancient Bath was a Roman spa. Now it’s a small town of about 80,000 living just west of London.

It’s also the site of Solsbury Hill, a small flat hill that was once home to an Iron Age fort and a Peter Gabriel song. In fact, Bath is also home to Peter Gabriel!

And a Canadian named Emma Hooper, who’s been there for 12 years since she moved to do her Masters. With no plans to leave Bath anytime soon, Emma talks about her fondness for the city and its residents. And she notes one particular breakfast item she misses that she can only get in Canada — and has said item shipped to her at great expense.


REBROADCAST: A Canadian Expat in Dubai

It took me a long time to go from the idea of this podcast to the first episode. I’m glad that when I finally did decide to pull the trigger on the Expats, I had a good friend (and fellow podcaster) living in a very interesting part of the world. I hope you enjoy this encore presentation of Expats Episode One.

Iris Dias had the opportunity to leave Canada in 2013 to pursue her career in Dubai. It seems like something that would be very difficult to say no to. So Iris took the easy way out: she said yes to the United Arab Emirates.
