Moving abroad is more than adopting to a new culture
Moving abroad entails more than cultural obstacles and language barriers. It also brings change into your life on every dimension. Relationships and marriages do change along the way, friends are missed, professional identity is on stake and most women are struggling finding new fulfillment in their life when the former job can’t be packed in a box and brought along on this adventure of living abroad. This website is here to help, to inspire, to empower, and to show you that the time abroad is a great opportunity for personal development if used right. You will find stories of expats around the world, useful tips & tricks to plan your job hunt, coaching exercises to broaden your mindset, helpful guides to feel at home abroad, and great resources for direct download.

2020 had a rough start in terms of global news. The outbreak of the coronavirus was one of them. The sheer amount of media coverage (on all levels of quality) and the uncertainty that the virus outbreak brought to many lives also affected expat families around the globe but specifically those closer to the area of origin. I was wondering, how expat families are coping with the challenge, how they made their decision on whether to stay or to go “home”, and what they have learned from the current situation.
Moving to a new city can definitely be a challenging process, especially if you do not know anyone there. Whether due to a new job, apartment, or relationship, the process of networking with a totally new crowd can be intimidating – even if you’re already outgoing. And that is after you have adjusted to the new location.
Many expats tackle writing in some kind of form throughout their time abroad. Some do journal about their experiences, some start a blog. Others have actually written a book or have contributed in forms of expert interviews. Others are interested in starting a portable career and realized that writing could be one approach. In this guest blog post by Rosetta, I want to introduce you to some of the key mechanisms when starting a career in writing. I hope you find her tips useful to start.
Moving overseas is a stressful time, especially when the two Cs (Children & Container) are involved. With our own move shortly ahead, I want to summarize all the tips and tricks I received from other experienced expats and that helped me the last time we have moved countries. This list of tips is tailored to families moving with a container. Often there are professional moving companies involved and while that is a huge help in can also lead to many misunderstandings and hiccups along the way.
Repatriation is one of the most underrated and intense phases of the whole process of temporarily living abroad. In this blog post, I want to show why that is, what you can do to prepare, and what you can expect. As always, I have used a mixture of academic papers, articles, and personal stories from within the expat community to create a valuable and comprehensive resource for you.
The perception of our lives abroad often differs tremendously from reality. While life abroad definitely brings along a lot of joy, happiness, opportunities and exciting experiences, it also comes with a price tag. Like everything in life, there are two sides to a coin.
The idea of us sitting along the pool sipping a margarita might feel far away for you. For your friends and family back home, this might be the picture that they have in their heads.
