Giną Nowicki

Audio and video editing by Sofija Jovanov

In the latest episode of The Mean Show podcast, Gina Nowicki, a marketing and communications specialist who lived most of her life in the San Francisco Bay Area, up and moved her family to Europe smack dab in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic. As you probably recall, just as we all thought things were getting better, they actually got worse—and that’s right about when they were scheduled to move. But the lure of an amazing life experience and to live in a beautiful French town was undeniable, so Gina’s family decided to go for it anyway.

It was not easy, but they have no regrets. Their 9-year-old is going to school and learning French, and Gina and her husband are figuring out the work thing—the remote employment movement was very good timing.

If you’ve ever dreamed of living abroad but maybe thought you were too old or that having kids made it impossible, you won’t want to miss this one!
