This blog describes my experiences as a postgraduate student in moving to Christchurch, New Zealand, which is a city still in the process of rebuilding after its earthquake. I point out differences compared to both the U.S. and U.K. where I've lived previously.

Hola and welcome, as you probably know, my story started in 2011 when I moved to Cracow, Poland. Thanks to the destiny during the winter 2012 I met el meu novio (my Catalan boyfriend). Over 14 months we lived apart (2 170 km were between us), but we survived the distance. In March 2014 we made a big decision and I moved to Catalonia. And here comes this blog: my aim is to show you all the beauty this country has to offer :) I´m lucky to have such a wonderful and pride guide at my side who is showing me thousand and one new places, new traditions, food and wine. I´m thankful to him and I´m grateful to share my experiences with you. I hope you enjoy the blog as much as I do. :)
I document my travels, what inspires me and everything in-between. I moved from Taipei to Shanghai, and I honestly cant tell you where I will be next. Im content with that. I may not have found a place to call home but regardless where I live, you will either find me wandering in a museum or writing scribbles in my notebook at a local coffee shop. Im smiling more as well as becoming more comfortable in my own skin.
Faking it in France is all about my experience as a British expat living in the beautiful city of Lyon. I share my ups and downs, give advice to fellow expats on different aspects of living in France, and share what to see in and around the Lyon area!
