I am from the UK and I moved to Cali primarily to find work in the environmental sector but it helps that I also have a boyfriend here! This is my second time living here and I decided to start this blog as there are almost no blogs about Cali so I hope to help expats wanting to make the move. This blog includes the usuals regarding visas, prices, food, what to do, but also social and political observations about life and culture here as I am a political scientist and can't help but look at things through that lens!
Although this blog details the day to day activities over a week, in Baños, Ecuador. I will be including other activities such as starting a business, opening a bank account and some of the things one needs to do in order to function within Ecuador. I am based in Guayaquil, therefore many of the examples will be from there, however, since the agencies I deal with are countrywide, they will appeal to those who settle in other parts of Ecuador.
I'm from south-east London, UK, and I moved to Bogotá, Colombia in October 2013 for reasons of the heart. During the first month or so in Bogotá, I felt completely disorientated and overwhelmed in the city; I wish I'd had a Bogotá handbook to help me find my way and know what to expect! So once I was more or less settled in, I decided to start a blog about life in Bogota, about customs, difficulties I have faced, things I've noticed, and I am offering up a few tips which I definitely would have found useful in the beginning! As time has gone by, I've also found myself exploring themes such as identity struggles and culture shock, which are inevitably intertwined with the experiences which come with moving to a new country.
