Welcome to Alkeks Abroad! I’m Courtney, and (until Travis writes his high demand guest post) I’m the voice behind the blog.

My husband’s job brought us across the world from Houston, Texas to Brisbane, Australia.

I used to be a fourth grade teacher but now I am a full-time housewife, aspiring substitute teacher and obsessive blog reader.

On Alkeks Abroad I write about our life down under, places we visit, things that catch my eye, thoughts that run through my scattered brain, and sometimes food. Because I really like to eat.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you will stay awhile. 🙂

    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,
