Episode 7 Shownotes – Andrew Duffell
In a detailed exchange, Andrew shared his experiences about moving to the US in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks. He reminisces about how travel, once celebrated for its simplicity, has since become something of an ordeal. Remember when you could run and catch your flight half an hour prior to its departure?
Life in the US introduced Andrew to a cultural melting pot, Florida, where about 60% of the population originates from other states or countries. As a British expat in such a culturally diverse state, he relished this acceptance, rivalling any presumed notions of the region being conservative or unwelcoming.
This account serves as a pertinent reminder that being an expat encompasses a gamut of experiences. From the joys of exploring a new city to the trepidations of dealing with unfamiliar policy changes, these stories embody resilience, growth, and most importantly, the human spirit of adventure.
