Hi, I’m Dalia. I help people create happiness abroad by living more productively and expanding their social circles.

So what’s Getting Close to?

On the surface, it’s about cool places and people.
But really? It’s about deeper relationships and possibilities.
It’s for people who want something more out of life  — those of us longing to find magic and adventure in our everyday lives.


Your host Dalia

Getting Close to Dalia

Hi! I’m Dalia and I’m the one you see in the videos on this site. I’ve been living outside my home city for over 10 years. I love helping expats and travelers to get outside their comfort zone and create new community wherever they go.
As a video blogger for Getting Close to, I capture people’s stories. If it were up to me, I’d live in a world where everyone cares about each other’s lives, whether they live next door or on the other side of the planet. When I’m not asking random people questions in the street and editing footage from my travels, you’ll find me trying to save the world doing communications work for humanitarianism issues.

Want to work with me?

Are you an expat looking for advice on living a happier life? Feel free to say hi.
