I will be flying to Europe tomorrow and living abroad for two years now my feeling about this holiday and coming “home” has changed a bit. In this blog post, I want to share my view about this. If you are an expat yourself, you might resonate with this, if you are a friend of an Expat this might help you to understand your friend a bit better.
What I learned from Oprah & Gwyneth
What I learned from Oprah & Gwyneth
I can really recommend this podcast to everyone who is interested in topics like mindfulness, lifestyle choices and becoming a better self.
The very first episode with Oprah has been amazing with so many thought-provoking topics.
This was actually my very first contact with Oprah as I did not grow up in America and just knew her by name until now. However, as she is waiting for a sign from the universe to run for the presidency in the US, it was time to get to know this person a little bit better.
The fascinating thing for me about Oprah is the huge followership she has in the States. Somehow Oprah managed to become a person who is liked by everybody no matter the background and lifestyle. Oprah is a person everyone can agree with on a certain level and listening to the podcast you start to understand why.
A few of my favorite quotes have been:
There are so many beautiful topics covered and with these quotes I just want to give you a feeling for the podcast. I can definitely recommend it even more so during your time of living abroad. Sometimes we tend to overthink ourselves and our situation due to all the changes happening with moving and living abroad. So, I hope you like the podcast and that you can draw some lessons out of it.
Do you have any favorite podcast to share? What is your most favorite podcast at the moment? Or do you even listen to podcasts?
Thanks for stopping by and sharing the love

So, I covered in several posts the identity struggle than can come along when you are moving abroad for the partner’s job. It’s a new beginning on several levels and a change also in areas that you have been happy with such as the job situation. In this blog post, I want to present you an interview with a very experienced Expat who moved abroad for her husband’s job and managed to re-invent herself and be happy with the new lifestyle. She contacted me after reading one of my blog posts where I covered the topic of why the question “What do you do?” can be a tough one. She expressed her disbelief that modern women are still struggling with this and showed me her perspective. I loved it and wanted to present to you her point of view so I asked her for an interview. And here it is: A conversation about the modern challenges of being an Expat Partner and what to learn from more experienced Expat Partners – with the amazing Antje Döhring.
This interview is the perfect proof that when you reach out to the universe, it will reply. I was searching for Expat Partners who were willing to share their story of becoming a professional blogger, and I found Christine. She was an Expat in Germany when she started her blog and turned it into a real profession. In this interview, she is sharing her tips and tricks without whitewashing. She is pretty straightforward about the ups and downs of blogging making this interview a perfect resource for you! I promise it is worth your time! Thank you so much, Christine, for your contribution!
I just came back from a perfect 1-week road trip through Arizona and a bit of Utah. Those states are really magical when it comes to nature and a definitive recommendation! If you are planning a 1-week road trip through the US check out this itinerary for inspiration!
How reflective are you with your current choice of career? We tend to question our diet, our partner, friends… but how happy are we in our current job environment? If we are unhappy, is this just for the moment or does it reflect a long-term frustration?
If you are considering to blog about your Expat experience I am highly recommending you to follow Roxci’s story. I am so glad that she is sharing her journey with us in a few questions. As a military spouse and blogger she is connected to both worlds and her content is highly professional! I hope you find her as inspiring as me!
