Life doesn’t have a script. At least, it doesn’t have to. Hosts Katy Sewall and Tiffany Parks explore the challenges and joys of moving abroad and moving home. Whether you’re living overseas, or not — or not yet — join us weekly for unadulterated conversation. Get to know Rome. Laugh at our embarrassments and insights. Most of all, imagine the possibilities for your own life (and meet some famous authors along the way).
On our amazing listener trip to Rome this past October, we interviewed two of our guests, expats Vince and Lindy.
These two native midwesterners talk about their backgrounds—traveling or not traveling as a child (depending on which member of the couple is talking), and how that has contributed to their life choices—and the challenges of being a twin (and being married to a twin).
They recount how they intentionally embarked on their life abroad, which has brought them to as far-flung places as Singapore and Switzerland. They talk about the things they love about those two countries, and what makes them unique, from the soundscape to the bureaucracy. They also describe what it’s like to move to a country that you have never stepped foot in.
