The Realities of Expat Life
Expat Life is Amazing
Living as an expat is an amazing way to experience other countries, cultures and people. You experience another side of a nation, something those on a couple of weeks’ vacation surely miss out upon.
There is so much to be gained from living overseas, I can't recommend it highly enough,
However, expat life can sometimes be complex and stressful and can present some unique challenges.
As much as we love expat life, there are times when we wonder what on earth we are doing.
Expat Life - The Truth
There is a myth about expat life that every day is a holiday; perfect, with cocktails on the beach, sunny weather, no stress and happy, smiling people everywhere.
Actual expats know better though. Expat life is simply life, but in another country. The grass isn’t necessarily greener – it’s just different grass. And there are a multitude of unique challenges each day.
Expat life doesn’t always go according to plan. Something that would be simple ‘at home’ can seem insurmountable when you’re dealing with a new language and different procedures and bureaucracy.
I recognise and acknowledge this and help you move through the challenges.
The Reality Of Relocation
Did you know that almost half of all international assignments fail? Most of these failures can be traced back to a lack of realistic preparation.
Expat life can be shocking for some people as expectations don't match real life. There are so many small, but significant details to consider that it's easy to get caught by surprise. You'll be amazed at how small things can affect your daily life when living in a different culture, miles from everything familiar.
