About Me

“Since life is SHORT and the world is WIDE, the sooner you start exploring, the better.” – Simon Raven

I ripped this quote out of an airplane magazine when I was ten and kept it ever since.

In 2012, I moved to another country for the first time. 9,000 miles away from everything I had ever known for 22 years and I haven’t looked back since!

“The Foreign Local” is really a play on words because you can’t be both however most of the time I visit somewhere I meet amazing locals who immerse me in their culture as if I have lived there my entire life, even though I am quite obviously a foreigner, and that is my favorite way to see a country! My boyfriend calls me an “Imported Local” whenever I joke about being a tourist. Traveling like this allows you to really get a feel for what life is like somewhere, the best little hidden secrets, and of course you get to try all the amazing FOOD! Who doesn’t like to eat?!
