Welcome to Alkeks Abroad! I’m Courtney, the voice behind the blog. I started Alkeks Abroad in 2014 to chronicle our lives as we moved from Texas to Australia. Since then we have grown from a twosome to a foursome, with the birth of our daughter, Leighton in 2016 and our son, Houston in 2018. On the blog you will find posts on travel, expat life, and mostly our little family.

    Dear Alkeks Abroad,

    My name is Joyce and I work for ExpatFinder.com.
    ExpatFinder.com is a free one stop website for people preparing to move or working and living overseas. We provide a myriad of services for expatriates and we have over 2,000 articles to help and support the people moving around the world and we are now creating an interview section to help the expats with real life experiences!
    We quite enjoy your blog about living in Brisbane, it is very interesting and informative. Would it be possible to interview you to further share some of your tips and feature some of your first hand experience as an Expat and your interview will be published on our Expat Interview section as a guide for our expat readers. The questions are mainly about the day to day lifestyle of an expat. If it would be possible, could you also send some photographs that we can use?
    Of course, if you accept, we can add a link to your blog or some of your website.
    The questions are enclosed, feel free to respond freely. You can return the doc with your answers if you accept this invitation.
    Thanks in advance and do let me know if you prefer other means to conduct this interview and we would be happy to accommodate your terms.

    Best regards,

  2. Saw your post on Abby’s blog – being from Houston, I had to stop by since you mentioned Katy AND Galveston! 🙂 I really like the look and feel of your blog. Luck you to be living in Australia!

      Thanks! I feel like living in Katy at some point is an expat right of passage. I went to high school with people I grew up with all over the world.
