D R E A M I N G  although it’s still almost a month away until my little sister @clari_calahari and her daughter E come to visit us in Australia, it’s all Tilly talks about at the moment! It’s so cute! First thing in the morning after waking up she won’t say ‘is it Christmas yet?’ but instead asks if her cousin is coming on the airplane from Austria today. And I already can’t wait for them to see each other again, how nice it will be. And I have to admit, I’m just a little excited myself. #familyiseverything #livinginaustralia
🇨🇭 AUSLÄNDERAUSWEIS 🇨🇭 Que es el Ausländerausweis? O lo que es lo mismo el permiso de residencia  Pues bien, hoy os traigo un post super importante a la vez que interesante para todo aquel que lleve poco tiempo en der #schweiz, vaya a venir o simplemente por información En Suiza hay varios tipos de permisos y están clasificados por letras. Hoy os voy hablar sobre los 4 más comunes y para personas procedentes de la #ue (Unión Europea) y #efta ( Asociación Europea de libre comercio ) Decir que por ser procedente dispones de 3 meses, en algunos casos 6 siempre y cuando demuestres que estas en búsqueda activa de empleo, para estar "legalmente" en Suiza  L: Residentes a corto plazo Se concede siempre y cuando tengas un contrato de 3 a 12 meses B: Ciudadanos extranjeros residentes Éste se concede cuando tienes un contrato de trabajo indefinido. Es prorrogable 5 años más siempre cuando se mantenga la relación laboral y no haya estado más de 12 meses desempleado  C: Ciudadanos extranjeros establecidos  Tiene validez ilimitada y se suele conceder una vez se ha residido y trabajado más de 5 años consecutivos  G: Trabajadores transfronterizos  Son personas que residen en un país de la UE/EFTA Y cruzan la frontera para trabajar en Suiza. Éstos están obligados al menos una vez por semana a volver a su residencia fija fuera de Suiza  Por cierto el que veis en la foto es el mío 🙌🙌🙌 recién salidito del horno Por cierto, decir también que los permisos los concede Migración y que de un cantón a otro puede variar y mucho . #ausländerausweis #permisoderesidencia #españolesensuiza #españolesporelmundo #andalucesensuiza #andalucesporelmundo #sevillanosensuiza #sevillanosporelmundo #expatfamily #expatlife #mamafollowloop #trabajarensuiza #vivirensuiza #instagood #instagram #expatmom #schweiz #switzerland #suiza

Before I moved to Melbourne, someone once said to me: "The sky is bigger in Australia" and I laughed.  Now I think about it, they might've been right. . . .  #whyistheskybiggerinaustralia #bigskies #blueskiesfordays #lifedownunder #expatlife #parentingfromafar #lifeinaustralia #melbourneaustralia #melbournesummer #ilovemelbourne #melbournebeaches #differentperspective

Strasbourg is basically like if Germany and France had a baby who turned out to be homecoming queen, valedictorian, and head of the annual Christmas charity drive. Just. So. Perfect. I can see why both sides have been fighting over her for years. 🇫🇷 🇩🇪 #expatlife #livingabroad #roadtrippin  #christmasmarkets #allspicedeverything #somuchpork
Mentre pianifico il prossimo viaggio (meta ancora incerta) penso al nostro primo in tre... quando Riccardo era ancora nella mia pancia. "Ma sei pazza ad andare in Giappone al sesto mese di gravidanza?", questa una delle frasi più frequenti che mi sentivo ripetere... e vogliamo parlare di quando mi dicevano "Quando nascerà non potrete più viaggiare così tanto!"? Riccardo oggi ha 2 anni... ha all'attivo centinaia di ore di volo, 2 intercontinentali a/r e decine di tratte europee. Noi non ci siamo mai fermati e scoprire il mondo attraverso i suoi occhi è ancora più incredibile ed emozionante. ❤ #feetmeetfloors #gioiedinatale . . . . #travelfamily #expatfamily #expatliving #expatlife #japandream #origamilovers #italianpassport #italianiingermania #italianiaessen #nationalgeographictravel er

The first time ever to get a space here in Z-Space! . It’s a pretty cool looking cafe. There’s lots of space for group work and even presentation rooms with projectors, a cinema room and a bar upstairs! Plus, check out the crazy amount of option buttons the toilet has🚽! It’s got an interesting mix of tunes, as a lot of places do in Beijing, but overall, I think it’s a cool place to chill, read a book and get some work done 👌 . . . #beijing #zspace #cafe #coffee #work #chill #relax #beijinglife #expatlife #enjoy #havefun #getshitdone #ebikelife

18 months 100 podcast. My initial goal was 12 months but life got in the way (of course). Cheers to new opportunities, new partnerships, a new platform and a new brand in 2019. To the 100 friends I interviewed your wisdom has been invaluable. Your support unwavering. Noone achieves anything on their own. To all the people behind the scenes rooting for my success and to my dear Mum who supports all my risk taking ventures, without the blink of an eye. Baba needs a little more convincing (Who gives up a lucrative career backed by years of expensive education to pursue an idea? Says the businessman!) To think this journey began three years ago with an idea. As my mentors say some skin in the game, now the REAL work begins. 🙏 The biggest risk is the one we take on ourselves. Onward and upward. 🎉 。 。 。 。 。 #entrepreneurship #rarebirds #life #entrepreneursjourney  #startups #business  #lovelife #expatlife #china #chinalife #doyourownthing #lifeisbeautiful #rareisamovement #risktakers #womenentrepreneurs #bossbabes #womenowned
My first gong fu tea session with my familia in Portugal.  Always hard to be without them at this time of the year. The curse of the expat. So fortunate but forever incomplete... Saudades 😔
As much as I loathed the repetition of the school run, it was pretty unique. You forget you’re living on a man made, Palm shape island. Every day feels like holiday mode here if you stop and look around. Glad to have had this experience #mydubai #palmjumeirah #expatlife

New post! “I’ll Only Know In the Moment” part 2- (link in bio) Leaving the metro in Condesa, I saw a metal walker laying sideways on some stairs, last night. A few stairs above was a man lying on the ground. I rushed over, picked up the walker, brought it to the man, asking if he needed help. He pushed the walker away and muttered something I couldn't really understand. I tried to move the walker to a higher step- thinking that this would better help him. Laying on the ground, legs twisted, the older man pushed the walker away and let it fall down the stairs. I looked across the stairwell facing opposite of us and saw a middle-aged middle class male and female couple looking as dumb-founded as me. The on-looker told me, in Spanish, that they had been trying to help him as well; but the man also refused any assistance. There was nothing more to do, but let him languish in his squalor. He was railing against the thing that is his support, and I don't blame him one bit. He has every right to be pissed and mad at the world and god. Haven't we all refused the help of a tender hand? I tend to rebuke the help of those with forceful hands and words. Am I doing that now in my own way, by leaving everything & everyone I know behind? I have 5 days left booked, and I am not quite sure where my next step is. Still in Mexico, but for how long will I live in impermanence? Until my money runs out, until I finally decide somewhere to settle down these restless bones and heart? Until my first book gets published? The answer will come. I will know in the moment when it's right to make a choice. I can feel it's getting closer.  There are miracles & lessons happening every day. I have not had the same experience as the man I met on subway stairs, but I understand the forlornness, the sometimes apparent cruelty and injustice of the world. Still, I have seen so much beauty to know that the uncertain times are the falsities.  #travel #writersofinstagram #instagay #photooftheday
New post! “I’ll Only Know In the Moment” part 1- (link in bio) 13th day in CDMX. I did not feel so brave today, but I can pinpoint its origins. It feels like lifetimes have passed since I left TX, in August. The countless lives, identities we have lived before today, yet this moment is all we have. We can't ever be sure what the next one will or will not bring us.
I went to reheat leftovers & found my food was stolen from the hostel/hotel kitchen. I've never stayed in a place that functions quite like this one. But there is an unwritten code amongst travelers and it was broken.

I scrawled a letter to the thief, telling them that if they were poor & hungry- it was wrong & hoped that they were nourished and enjoyed it. But if the person who nicked my food was just lazy or uncaring- I told them to “go fuck themselves.” I later left a postcard- apologizing for that tone along w/ a smattering of pesos if someone needed them.  I returned & two notes in Spanish had been written next to mine- rebuking the robber. The postcard & pesos still left on the counter. A shred of hope in humanity restored.

I wasn’t as upset about stolen food, it felt like a betrayal to my quest or whatever this half-planned and half-flying by the seat of my pants thing I’m doing. Perhaps that's how life is supposed to be. We live on precarious edges each moment. We take waking up, sex, FOOD, & limbs for granted. We withhold love from those we love or are "supposed" to love the most. We cannot give what we don’t have. And “I do not want what I haven’t got.” That's a lie, & the name of Sinead O'Connor's debut album. 😆 Still, there is some truth in that sentiment.

Stranger in a strange land. The Man Who Fell to Earth. Will I ever find a place that is home- which can contain these multitudes? “Have you forgotten? You are multitudes. You can never be contained in words or bodies, alone.” . . . . #travel #writersofinstagram #instagay #photooftheday
