  1. It always seems people are running from and to. It was my case years ago. I felt like I belong in Japan of all places and pursued the culture relentlessly. Looking back, I think I needed to understand and see my own home from another angle– from a distance perhaps. Then I understood what a wonderful place it was and returned. I can barely cross a state boarder now without being homesick.

  2. That is a fantastic interview, Sandra! Very deep insights to what your move was about and what it means to move to a completely different part of the world. Also great tips for visitors or those who consider moving to Australia!

    • Thank you, Erika. I’m always open to help people out discovering this beautiful country. I just had one of the nurses, who looked after my Dad in the very end and who was supposed to travel to Down Under Under cancel on the trip. I felt so great giving her all those little tips. Now I’m torn. Unfortunately she got very sick. Now I wonder if I made her feel worse for not being able to most likely ever see all of what I’ve mentioned. Life takes very sudden turns. xoxo

  3. Though the interview was geared more to “expats” I truly appreciate and am glad that you shared your viewpoint as a “transplant.” I guess I could say then that I was an expat in Brentwood but am more of a transplant in Oak Ridge. Reading this interview helped me to crystallize my own thoughts on the subject, the words and the differences between the two.
