Taxes for Expats: How to Survive, Thrive & Not Get Hunted Down by the IRS!

on June 6, 2018

I am very lucky (in a lot of ways) but here is a big one: When I was an expat in England, I didn’t have to do UK taxes because I was a student on a Tier 4 Visa.¬†However,¬†I did have to do my US taxes. Even though I wasn’t living in the US! Many people from the US don’t know that when you live abroad, you actually still have to file US taxes on your worldwide income. That’s a pretty important wakeup call because you do not want the IRS hunting you down, my friends! Think how complicated doing taxes for expats is: You have income in multiple countries, bank accounts in multiple countries, multiple jobs (hello blogger life), and more. Taxes for expats is no mean feat.

One thing about loving travel is you’re always looking for the next¬†destination. Far flung tropics? Towering fjords? Bustling bazaars and deserts? Count me in.

Travel Impressions | Toronto is…

on May 23, 2018

I had a flying visit to Toronto on my way home from the Women in Travel Summit. After an 8-hour day road tripping from Quebec, I arrived to Toronto sticky, cramped, and exhausted with my family. My dad was there to receive an award at a conference, but I had only 17 hours in the city before I had to hop on a Greyhound bus back to Michigan and cut the family road trip short. Due to, ya know, work. Besides just being exhausted from all the conferencing and driving and just wanting to stay in one place and CHILL, I think I also wanted to stay in Toronto because it’s… cool! As in, sunglasses emoji cool. It reminds me a bit of a Canadian Chicago. I only wish I had more time to explore, so I’m hoping I can make that happen soon… Continue reading

If you’ve been following along on Instagram, you know I just had a 16-hour road trip to Quebec for the Women in Travel Summit!

However they are also¬†hard.¬†I always feel exhausted after a day in the car, and if you take into account the occasional flat tire or getting lost… well, sometimes road trips don’t seem worth the hassle! Which is why when I was recently contacted about publishing a guest post* on 5 tips for a stress free road trip, I thought it was perfect timing. I don’t usually share guest posts but I think you guys will like this one! Continue reading
