I’m Carrie, and I left Canada in 2003 to see the world. Somewhere along the way, I ended up falling in love with Asia, and the rest is what you see here on MSW.
My husband and I have kept a home base on Planet Taiwan since 2006, but we travel frequently and we’ve been all over the world.
Come and travel Asia with me!
Life as a Canadian expat overseas is full of surprises, and many of those surprises are stories that are featured here on My Several Worlds
We’ve traveled all over Taiwan by motorcycle, we’ve been cenote swimming in Vietnam, I’ve moonlighted as a nightclub singer in China, and I’ve walked in Buddha’s footsteps in Laos.
I’ve lived abroad since 2003 and I have hundreds of adventures to tell you as well as advice to offer to travelers and expats from all walks of life.
Nowadays, we don’t travel as far or as long as we used to because I have been living abroad with several chronic illnesses that keep us tied to our residence in Taiwan. Backpacking is out of the question now, but we still travel as much as we can. Our style of travel has changed since my diagnosis, and of course, there are some real challenges to travel of any sort when you’re chronically ill, but it is possible. This is my journey…
Here are some of my recent posts…
My stories aren’t just about Asia, though.
I write about all the places I’ve visited. My travels began when I made the decision to teach abroad, and I’ve published a fairly extensive section on how I got started on that journey.
If you’re interested in traveling, learning more about Asia, you’re wondering what it’s like to live abroad as an expat, or you’re looking for information on teaching English abroad, then you’ll probably like my articles and how-to guides here on MSW.
