The Most FAQ About My Move to Bermuda - Dana Chirps

As promised, I've compiled a list of questions that multiple people have been asking me about my move to Bermuda.

"Why did you move to Bermuda?" My boyfriend got a job based here. He's a pilot, and flies private charters all over the world, mostly in the Middle East. With much discussion, we agreed that this was a once in a lifetime kind of opportunity that we had to take advantage of.

"Will you be working?" This question always makes me laugh. My answer is yes, of course. I don't post a ton about work related stuff in general, but I assure you there's a lot of grinding in between my beach pictures. ;) 

"What will you be doing?" Marketing - forever, and always! I had started a contract earlier this year that ended up not being a great fit (they wanted someone local, and I wasn't exactly crazy about what I was doing), so I have since expanded a contract with a company I've been doing work for (primarily branding and copywriting) for a while. I'm pretty stoked because I know the players and love working with them. I'm also doing some sporadic event marketing which should yield some pretty exciting trips and experiences. I'd love to add another (part time) marketing contract to my plate, so I'm keeping my eyes and ears out. I'm a girl who likes to stay busy! :)

"Where will you live?" Brett and I are renting a furnished one bedroom apartment in St. David, which is located in the parish of St. George. It's bright, and lovely. We secured it site-unseen, and it ended up exceeding the expectations we had formulated based off the photos we received from our landlord. So we are quite happy!

"Will you have a car?" Nope. Bermuda has a strict limit on the number of cars they allow on the island. We will be walking, and biking until we get a scooter (and scooter licenses). There is also bus transportation throughout the island which I'm sure we'll use on occasion.

"Are you nervous?" Honestly, the only things that make me nervous about this experience is getting around. Many places (like our apartment for example) are not on Google maps, and the roads are not clearly marked with signage that Americans would be used to. So learning my way around, and eventually learning to ride a scooter is what makes me nervous. Other than that, I feel excited, and optimistic.

Hi everyone! I'm Dana Podgurski! 

I'm a foot in the mouth, tongue in cheek, head in the clouds, and heart on the sleeve kind of gal. I live for new experiences, but am a total sucker for nostalgia at the same time. I'm tough as nails, but am a complete softie for all things kids and animal related. I fly by the seat of my pants, and live for adventure. But I firmly believe that adventure is a mindset that one's self determines.

For work, I am a marketer through and through. Bringing brands to life, and content marketing are passions of mine. Many would consider what I do as nerdy, but I seriously dig it. I have been doing marketing contract work for years, and appreciate the variety it brings, and the relationships I've developed with my clients. To check out my work portfolio, or if you're interested in a partnership, click here.

For fun I love to create - writing/blogging, photography, and painting are my main three mediums of doing so. Feeling good and healthy is also high on my list, as it really lends itself to making everything more enjoyable. So I maintain a very active lifestyle, eat pretty healthy, and am outdoors as much as I can be. And if my blog didn't make it abundantly clear, I absolutely LOVE to travel. I spend any extra money I have on plane tickets, and feel so fortunate to have been to several amazing destinations both domestically and internationally. There's nothing more fulfilling than coming home from a trip and adding a been-there-pin to my map.
