My goal is to show others what life as an expat is like,
so they too can travel the world.

Hi, I'm Nick and in 2015 I quit my job working for a prominent banking institution in order to follow my dreams. I moved from Austin, TX to beautiful Okinawa, Japan and am loving every second. I had a lot of doubts and worries about making the move abroad and scoured the internet looking for answers to qualm my nerves. Much of what I found was related to the military so I decided to create this blog for all the expats in Okinawa present, past, and future. Welcome to the island!


I'm from Meridian, MS and have lived abroad before in Valladolid and Madrid, Spain from 2010-2012. I currently teach English in a Japanese high school in Yomitan, Okinawa.
