Welcome to Expat Essays!

Living abroad is not easy. But if you can make it work, it’s worth it.

Expat Essays is a collection of personal essays about life, living abroad, and finding yourself far away from home.  Amy Goldstein is the founder, principal contributor, and editor of Expat Essays.  Originally from Ann Arbor, Michigan, Amy moved to Buenos Aires, Argentina in 2005, where she lived for over three years before moving to New Zealand in 2009.   She hopes that readers, especially other expats, benefit from her notes, stories, advice, and experiences.

Amy can be reached via email at expatessays@gmail.com

    I heard about your blog through Yael (from Seattle) – I’m currently living abroad in Israel. I absolutely loved your stories! I feel like no matter what country your in, your style of writing allows the reader to truly connect to your stories 🙂

    Amy, Thanks for the encouragement of traveling to Australia! I really appreciate getting support from someone who’s been there, done that. I love your site as well, great stories about other cultures that only a few people appreciate.

    When are you moving to NZ?
