StoryCorps Chicago: Moving 10,000 Miles For Love

Clare Casey moved 10,000 miles to be with the man she loves.

Clare grew up in Sydney, Australia, but her husband David Casey is from Chicago’s Southeast Side. The couple met at a honky tonk bar in Austin, Tx., in 2012, when they were both on vacation.

Now, they’re coming up on their first wedding anniversary. Earlier this year, they visited the StoryCorps booth at the Chicago Cultural Center to talk about the challenges of moving halfway around the world for another person.

Special thanks to Anne Ford for facilitating.
