Return to Americans

Savannah Naffziger

“We’re driving to Boston, to move there.
My girlfriend has family, a Master’s program and a possible job there and I wanted to get out of Portland, [Oregon]. The job economy in Portland is horrible.
We’re trying to make a new start.
– – – 
I’ve always wanted to be an expat… my dream job is in Paris. I want to get out of the U.S. for some period of time.

I’m one of those stereotypical Americans who feel a ‘connection’ [to Paris].
We’re planning on moving back to Portland as soon as possible –

as soon as the economy recovers and she gets her Master, we’re back that way.”
