I come from a long line of expats; my grandparents moved to Brazil in the 1940s (although they eventually relocated back to the UK) and then my mother moved to the US in the 1970s. I followed their lead by moving to Australia -- the country that I, at the age of 11, declared I would move to "when I grow up" -- in 2008. I write about my travels and expat life at A Pair of Boots and a Backpack and can be found on Twitter at @aussiestompy.
