At the end of October, we're embarking on a grand adventure to live abroad in Prague for a year! I plan to post more details soon, but am currently attempting to juggle Inktober, moving preparations, design work and chasing my toddler - heehee.
But here are a few of the questions we've been asked a lot lately:
Why on earth would you WANT to do something like this?
James and I enjoy traveling. When we visit new places and experience other cultures, we come away with new perspectives and a clearer understanding of what we want out of life. We're excited to share this passion with our young daughter, Nova, and hope to give her a greater appreciation for the world she lives in. Only time will tell if this is one of the best decisions we've ever made or a complete disaster, but we knew we would always regret it if we didn't try.
What are you doing for work?
James is a freelance illustrator working primarily for video games and table top games. I'm so proud that he has worked very hard to establish enough of a career and client base that we (on a frugal budget) have the flexibility to choose where we want to live.
After researching several different locations, we found that Prague (at least for now) is one of the "best bangs for the buck." Amazingly beautiful and not nearly as expensive as many other major cities.
