Right out of college, I moved to the small West African nation of Equatorial Guinea. I was working as an engineer for an oil and gas company. I spent 9 months living in Equatorial Guinea or on an oil platform off the coast of EQG. I was an unfortunate victim of the drop of price in oil. I love working in Equatorial Guinea many reasons and miss it every day. Here are the top 8 things I miss about EQG.
In early October 2013, I received the email that every college senior hopes for. It was an offer letter from my first choice company. Two roads diverged in a yellow wood. The offer opened a whole new world. It wasn’t just an offer, it was an offer for an international mobile position. I was asked to expatriate in West Africa. Two roads stood before me: the well-worn safe route of taking a job in the US or the uncharted territory of being an expat. Sorry I could not travel both,
