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.

Days until the last group of 2021 starts

Moving abroad is often associated with loneliness, especially in the beginning. It takes a while to build up a new network and not everyone can understand what is happening in your life. Hence the idea of a Global Coffee Date to meet like-minded people who can sympathize with your life around the world in an informal atmosphere. We meet once a month and use small breakout rooms for deeper connection.
