Her happy place is with a good book, her husband and sunshine.
Sarah Green
Sarah is an English teacher in Bangkok, Thailand. She is originally from outside of Cleveland, Ohio and has been working in Thailand for a couple of years now. She highly believes in doing work that you are passionate about while living life to the fullest. That thought is just what made her drop what she was doing, pack her bags and move across the globe to Thailand.
Saskia Van Riessen
As a Minneapolis-born girl with dual citizenship in the Netherlands, Saskia has loved to travel since she was a girl. This wanderlust has brought her to 24 different countries with childlike wonder. She has soft spots for Rome, where she studied abroad, and Madrid, where she taught English after graduating. Her favorite part about traveling is finding hidden gems – a hole-in-the-wall family restaurant, a breathtaking view or the best gelato in the city.
Scarlett Vogle
Rugby, volleyball, and tag rugby keep her busy nearly every night of the week after work. Acupuncture, the beach, and pool help her relax on days off. While Hong Kong was never on her bucket list to visit, let alone live in, she's made a nice life there in a short time with her many incredible, international friends. She reckons you can find her teaching kiddos what sound ‘A’ makes for the next five years or so before she's off to the next continent.
Sixtina is an expat from Germany. She's all about real local experiences and living in different countries long-term. You can find her doing a handstand at the edge of a cliff, creating memories in a photo box, or trying to eat spicy food without crying. She has too many great stories to tell, insider tips, and amazing photos to keep them all to herself.
Sophie Smalls
Originally from London, Sophie qualified as an English lawyer before moving to Vietnam in 2015. She lived and worked in Ho Chi Minh City for 4 years and travelled a lot around South East Asia during that time, before finally deciding to quit my job and start travelling full-time. Since September 2019, she's mainly been travelling around South and Central America and has no plans to stop travelling anytime soon!
