Welcome Abroad!

Hi, I’m Sara, founder of First Month Abroad - lawyer from 9 – 5 (or 6 or 7 or 8) and daydreamer every other minute of the day. I love traveling, photography, and people so First Month Abroad, a place that unites all three, makes perfect sense. I have been toying with the idea for this site for a little while now and am ecstatic to finally launch it!

I created First Month Abroad to highlight the lives of newly-transplanted expats – both the thrilling and the challenging parts that come with uprooting your entire life and moving to a new country and an unfamiliar culture. Even if you are not on the move, you will be able to find hidden gems for your next trip abroad. My hope is that you will discover something new and explore the world beyond famous landmarks.

We are in the very beginning stages right now, so keep checking back for updates! We are actively looking for contributors so head over to the Submissions page to share your journey.

Cheers - happy exploring!
