I love galavanting around the world, but I never thought I would be able to settle in a foreign country for long. Then I discovered Seville, and after many visits, decided to move there "for a year" in 2004. I'm still there, living with my husband in a slightly crumbling apartment overlooking the rooftops of an eighteenth-century church.

In the summer of 2012, I published a book about my expat experiences called Dancing in the Fountain: How to Enjoy Living Abroad. Critics are comparing it to A Year in Provence and Eat, Pray, Love. Lonely Planet said, "I loved this book ... I must have laughed aloud at least once in every chapter ... The advice in the book is terrific."

This summer, my husband and I are walking out our front door in Seville, strolling to the railway station, and embarking on a three-month train trip through Central and Eastern Europe. We'll be seeking obscure and interesting corners to explore, and I'll be blogging along the way.
