Hi! My name is Sam & I’ve been lucky enough to have the chance to live abroad (twice!!). I was living in Barcelona, Spain from August 2014 until July 2016. Currently I call Bogota, Colombia home.

During all my time living abroad I’ve gotten the opportunity to travel to some incredible places and experience some amazing things! I finally decided that it was time to share some photos & stories from these experiences and places.

Now that I’m living abroad in my second country & have traveled to 12+ countries & countless different cities, I’ve decided that I have enough stories and way too many photo so maybe it’s time to share….

There’s so many people that I would love to be able to share my photos, stories and experiences with…. but sometimes the distance (& time difference) makes that slightly difficult. So here will be the place…. follow along with my adventures!

  1. Hi Sam, thank you for stopping by my blog so I could discover yours! I love the photos and the places. I’m so happy that I started blogging so I could find all these amazing people with so much traveling experiences. It’s like finding kindred spirits, a family of passion in a way.

  2. Hi Sam,
    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I’m glad you liked my post. 🙂
    Just curious, how do you manage to actually live in those other countries?
    It has been a dream of mine for ages to be able to move to another country. So far, I have not been able to figure out how to support myself. Can’t get a work visa so can’t legally even try to find a job. Getting too old to take chances working under the table (I don’t want to risk getting deported).
    Any ideas? Helpful hints? Or should I just keep dreaming til I get old enough to ‘retire’?

    1. I got lucky!!! Right now I have a partner visa to live in Colombia (my partner is Colombian!). In Barcelona I was studying a masters so I was there on a student visa. A student visa is a good option, you could sign up for a language course and get a student visa through that. It depends on the country… each country offers different things. Look as much as you can … & never give up on your dream!!


    1. It came through … there’s some sort of problem with my blog host… working on fixing it now 😊😊❤️❤️

  3. Hi Sam! I like your blog….. How do you get posts on the home page and under a parent page?! It’s so confusing. I lived in Colombia too though! Medellin… Bogota seems to have more going on but Medellin is just GORGEOUS!! Don’t forget to paraglide 😉

  4. Hello Sam,
    I just wanted to let you know that I have nominated you for the Liebster Award, I am not sure if you have been nominated before but you are one of the bloggers that I admire and look to for inspiration so I wanted to share this with you!

    Thank you for being an inspiration!

  5. They there! Thanks for visiting my blog 🙂

    The first thing i saw were your posts, which didn’t seem quite like the way i travel — but then i checked out your about me tab and realized that you’re a fellow nomad and we might actually have a lot more in common!

    Keep up with it! I wish i had started writing back when i first moved abroad also, like you’ve been doing, rather than just after i started traveling full time.
