My life, and career, to date have given me the opportunity to live, study and work in a number of different countries – specifically, but not necessarily in this order: France, Spain, UK, Croatia (briefly) and USA. This has meant that I have a large number of international colleagues, ex-colleagues and friends – I think when you start to see things at an international level be it at work or at school, you never really revert to a purely national view of things.

It gets harder and harder as the years – and the moves – go by to answer that inevitable question "where are you from?". And when you have the pleasure of starting x new jobs in y new countries it tends to come up quite a bit. It's been almost 10 years that I left the UK to study in France (I went to the 'prestigious' ESC Marseille-Provence; recently rebranded to Euromed Marseille Ecole de Management – see one of my early posts here) and I've bounced around the world a little over that time – so how or what decides where we are really from?

After struggling for a while with various different blogs and not really knowing how to make them all work together – or for that matter to find a particular direction – I have now decided to focus purely on Anglo Abroad and to abandon the various other sites.
I have therefore imported the relevant posts from my previous blog to this one; no need to go elsewhere to read them and herewith the previous intro:

Itchy feet is a beautiful English term – I'm not entirely sure that it has made it into American usage – but it so neatly encompasses the feeling that I tend to get every 6 to 10 months.
A while back, I wrote a post about Choosing a City which is worth me re-reading quickly before I continue.
