About me

My name’s Nina Hobson. I’m a thirty something woman who’s lived in thirty something places. Angola, Syria, Switzerland and Belgium are just some of the countries I’ve called home.

I started this blog to stay in touch with my loved ones, to reconnect with long lost friends and to log my journey with new expat buddies.

I recently moved to Santiago in Chile. It’s been a roller coaster!

As well as blogging, I also write for a variety of publications, including the Telegraph online, luxury travel websites and other lifestyle sites.

Oh, and to anyone what an ‘Expater’ actually is….

Definition ‘Expater’ noun [ɛksˈpatə]

A fun loving individual who lives outside their native country, moving from hotel to temporary apartment in search of cultural adventure. Also loves Mojito.
