Welcome to the first episode in a series featuring travelers with passports from different countries who travel the world. I wanted to have this series because a lot of Sunshine Chasers listeners (hi!) have a United States passport, or another fairly strong passport. But 2019 is a year of opening yourself up to other peoples’ experiences - so let’s start the (podcasting) year up right!
Meet Aneesa - also known as Expat Panda. She is a full time teacher currently living in Dubai and traveling the world with a South African passport. Here are some things we chat about in this episode:
Aneesa breaks down what “strength of a passport” means and what passport privilege is.
We discuss how the words “immigrant” and “expat” are used in our experiences and why she calls herself an expat - in addition to some travel stories about places she’s visited recently.
You know I couldn’t help asking her about her teaching experiences and chatting about education!
