Sonja Thomson
Who are you?

I’m Sonja, originally from New Zealand but now based in Scotland, and I write about travel and expat life on my blog, Migrating Miss. I love travelling (obviously), finding unique cafes where I can sample the coffee and cake, and pushing myself out of my comfort zone with adventure activities. I started moving countries when I was 16 years old, and I’ve lived in five countries since, other than my own.   more ...

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 ...
