Janine Christie on life in Spain, finances and rebooting your career
Today our roots are in Jamaica, nurtured in the UK and matured in Canada
Janine Christie is hilarious!! The brains and humour behind the blog My Expatations we cover a lot of ground with a lot of laughter. I even had to mute my mic!
Janine is a lovepat, she fell in love with a Welshman and went to live in Spain. On this journey, there was a stint in London and an incident with a hammer.
Janine arrived in Spain just before the economy went belly-up and was unable to find fulfilling work. Then there's the whole issue of your spouse supporting you financially and how awkward and disempowering that can feel when you have always been financially independent. Is it fair?
Janine found her feet and her voice again by reassessing her skills and ever so gently poking fun at the dance that is creating friendships in expat communities. Out of this, her blog was finally launched after a year under wraps, and now she is providing salty copywriting services.
