Coming to Oslo from a small town to start college was overwhelming at age 17. So many people, buildings, roads, different smells and noises that was both exciting and challenging. For 10 years I have been living in this wonderful melting pot and it's something I haven't once regretted.Continue Reading
I have lived in Calgary my entire life, 28 beautiful years. I have thought many times about moving to another city just to mix things up, but Calgary has proven to be a great home base, and continues to grow with arts and culture.
Calgary is most known for the annual Calgary Stampede which includes a rodeo, midway, concerts, and exhibitions. It is been a tradition here for over 100 years, and is a citywide celebration of the city’s history and culture. Calgary is home to a booming oil and gas industry, and is also a short 1.5 hour drive to the rocky mountains which include beautiful towns, hikes, and stunning scenery. We also have amazing sunsets here.
I have lived here just about half of my life as I spent many years in different parts of the world while growing up. A city for modern living with old traditions, futuristic architectures and high-tech gadgets. An amazing destination for shopping for fashion, cutting edge electronics and practically anything one could ever want to buy.Continue Reading

I Just started my second year in Jerez. Moved here because of my boyfriend’s job and fell in love with the authenticity of the place, sherry wines and the beauty of the province. Jerez is very well known for its Sherry wines, horses and flamenco music.
I have lived in Trondheim for about 10 years. I really got to know the city when I studied Media and Communications there. I went to Trondheim Cathedral School and it is the oldest school in Norway, built in 1152.Continue Reading
Even though my time living here was short, the summer semester I spent studying abroad at Cambridge University was the best time of my life. Coming to this tiny city to live away from home for the first time at the age of 20 was frightening but the charming cobble stone streets, tiny alleyways and ancient architecture made me feel as though I had stepped into a fairytale. I was comforted almost immediately by the welcoming locals, there was beauty every which way I looked, and a homey vibe that was radiating through the lush environment.Continue Reading
I have lived in Rome for fourteen years. The first few years I felt disoriented: I came from the Tuscan province and I was not used to so many people all at once and in a space and a time so dilated. I don't know if today I feel at home here but it's certain that I love my city, because so far it gave me so much.Continue Reading
I was born in Rio and have since then lived here. I love to travel, to know and to explore new places, but definitely, Rio has my heart. I think what represents my city is the natural beauty and the hospitality of the locals.
My family relocated to Winnipeg nine years ago — the capital city of the Friendliest Province of Canada. The city stands for the name it has been given; people not only shovel the snow off their own vicinity, they extend it to their neighbour’s just for the heck of it!
I've lived in Iceland 22 years, always in Reykjavik, I lived in the suburbs until I was 18 years old then I moved downtown, close to the cafés, bars and restaurants.Continue Reading
I have spent 7 years wandering, wide-eyed throughout the far corners of Atlanta. Having grown up taking long bus rides to school, peering out at pastures dotted with cows or hay bales, city life was a whole new ball game for me. The contrast was fascinating. When I decided to attend Georgia State University, I could never have predicted the sense of community that could come from a city so much larger than the small town I had left.Continue Reading
I have lived in Karachi for around 10 years and find it difficult to recreate the connection I have with this city anywhere else. Karachi is truly reflective of the many groups of people that abound within it. You will find drastic differences between the northern and southern areas.Continue Reading
