First, fix the unmatched quotes in the last part of exp.

exp = {"I do not", "understand", "this"}

Use Riffle to insert a linebreak in between each part, and then use 
StringJoin to combine into a single string.

withbreaks=Riffle[exp, "\n"]


Export["filename.txt", text]

I like to use SetDirectory[NotebookDirectory[]]
before importing/exporting, so that the directory is the same place 
where the working notebook is saved.
