Living Abroad Interview with Jen and Swapnil

It’s been awhile, but we’re thrilled to share another video in our Living Abroad series by our favourite videographer, Jon Vannoy. Jennifer and Swapnil Bhartiya have been living in Belgium for over a year now, but spoke to Jon just three months into their new lives in Brussels.

Now both American citizens, Swapnil originally hails from India and talks about his expat identity crisis. Jen talks about her love of the sense of the community in European cities. Both were surprised by the multiculturalism of their new home.

    Living Abroad is quite different than living in our own country. In Abroad we get to see so much cultures and people with different background. I enjoyed the video. Thanks Jon.
