Hi I’m Laura Bronner, AKA the Eternal Expat. I want to show you that a life of travel doesn’t require a ton of money or all that much bravery. I’ve been doing it for all this time without either of them.

I prefer to stay in one place for a few months at a time when I travel. In the last seven years, I have spent over a year in New Zealand, Australia, and South Korea. I have traveled for months at a time through Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Thailand, the UK, Denmark and Mexico.
Not only is it usually a cheaper way to travel (and much cheaper than living in the US where I’m from), but it allows me to live a bit more like a local in each location. I can shop at the nearby grocery stores or markets, talk to people that live there, and even pick up a little bit of a new language.
Traveling quickly and often becomes exhausting after a while, so for me, in the long term, slow and immersive travel is much more sustainable.

Follow along with Laura on her website, on Twitter or on Instagram.

Do you have any other tips to share with us on how you become part of the local scene when you travel?
