Great to be here (this limbo place so many of us have been for quite sometime, yet it’s rarely addressed as such)…and congratulations for the launch. I’m also a fan of navigating the new through the old, which has a way of stripping the modern markers of our global lives which *should* make us feel in at home and yet are simply a veneer on the unfamiliar. Going back to the old school maps is a way to get down to basics. Excited!
Thanks, Anastasia. This endorsement means a lot, coming from you, the brains behind Expat+HAREM. So many of the posts you have sponsored — about what it means to be a global nomad — have inspired me over the past year.
As author and entrepreneur Jo Parfitt wrote in a recent blog post of hers: “Anastasia likes to publish gritty, important posts.” Jo was referring to how much she enjoyed writing a piece for Expat+HAREM on her ambitions to create a separate genre for expat books.
I’m super excited about exploring the potential for collaboration between our team and yours!
What a great introduction to the displaced nation! I look forward to reading more! I love the site’s look and your writing style. I reminds me of older times and they have a bit of a Neo-Victorian feel. I can’t wait to learn more about the displaced nation!
Thanks, Gaby. As a great fan of the Victorians, including and especially their travel writings, I consider your remark about our site having a “neo-Victorian feel” the highest of compliments! Meanwhile, I’ve taken a peak at Wanderinglusting Life, which I gather is a place to share travel stories on behalf of ending world hunger. Using social media to benefit social causes is still an under-explored area. But who better to take it on than a real-world explorer like you! We wish you all the best and hope you will return to TDN often.

I don’t know what this place is, but I’m glad I’m here. I’ve never felt so at home on a website; one that promotes a rootlessness brought upon by travel. You had me at the first paragraph, or perhaps even at the banner. I am curious and looking forward to what this place will reveal. I just wish it allowed me to subscribe to the email! It seems none of my addresses are good enough. Alas!
Anna, I’m so sorry your email addresses don’t work. It seems the WordPress RSS widget isn’t as cross-cultural as we all are! Perhaps, until we overcome this glitch, you could follow us on Facebook and get your updates that way?
Thank you so much for your wonderful comment — it indicates that our website is going in the direction we envisaged when we first conceived the idea.
