My name is Jessica. I found Travellerspoint about a month ago and love it- such a cool community. I am 26, living in (and from) NY, finishing art school and constantly being pulled away and inevitably back to New York. Moving abroad has become somewhat of a struggle for me to define reality. It is great to hear so many stories on this site about people that are able to relocate and find everything they were looking for.
One of my favorite parts about travelling is how quickly a place goes from foreign to familiar. One minute you're trying to figure how to get out of the airport and the next minute you feel like you've lived there your whole life.
