Episode 57: One last time, a Canadian Expat in Dublin

Cadence Konopaki fell in love with Ireland when she lived there back in 2000. Fifteen years later, it called her name again.

Episode 45: A Canadian Expat Family crisscrosses the globe

Athens

I so enjoyed talking with one Canadian couple about the “gap” six months they took off with their two children, that I was eager to talk to Ted Buracas about the year he, his wife, and their daughter took off to crisscross the globe. It’s a charmed life they lead, and I wanted all the details. Teddy was fun to chat with, and shared a lot of insights and wisdom as well.

Make sure you check out Teddy’s blog, and make sure you subscribe to his YouTube channel.

Episode 44: A Canadian Expat Family in Central and South America [Part 2]

Flamingos

In the last episode, Jocelyn and Mike talked about all the planning that went into the 6-month sojourn in Central and South America. This episode, we get into some of the nitty-gritty of their travels: where they stayed, what countries they visited, the people they met — and perhaps more importantly — what kind of wildlife they saw.

The family is back in Canada now adjusting to their lives at home. But they (well, at least one of them) are already contemplating their next journey.

Episode 43: A Canadian Expat Family in Central and South America [Part 1]

travel luggage

Welcome to a new season of the Expats! This is Part One of Two in my conversation with Canadians Mike and Jocelyn. At the start of 2017, they rented out their house, enrolled their two children in online school, and took off six months from their lives to explore Central and South America. While this isn’t exactly a “traditional” expat experience like the ones we’ve typically examined, it was still a story we really wanted to hear.

This first episode takes us through all the things this Canadian family of four needed to do to get ready for their trip. What to do with their apiary? Who to leave their dog with? How to pack strategically? And exactly how much LEGO to bring? We discuss all of it!
