I’m an English Australian currently living the expat life in Pasadena, California. My main passion in life is “being somewhere different”. I’ve lived outside of the UK for more than half my life and I’ve travelled to over 30 countries. Nothing gives me more joy than experiencing something new and different, taking some photos of it, and then writing about it!
Work-wise I’m in the enviable position of being able to work in the field of my other passions: astronomy and communications. I currently work for a telescope construction project where I get to promote astronomy every day. If you really want to know about this part of me, check out my page on science communication.
The other thing I like to do is run, and in 2012 I went from barely being able to run for one minute to being able to comfortably run for two hours. Check out my race history on my running page.
This blog started as a way to pass the time when we first moved to the US and I was out of work. It has now evolved into a travel and expat blog. I hope you enjoy it – and if you don’t, let me know! Please email me at amanda.kocz[at]gmail.com or leave a comment and let me know what you think!
