"Appreciation for your great content"
"Just more congrats and appreciation for your great content. I wish I’d found you before I had moved over… the resources I found were useless in comparison.
You obviously not only have lived the life, but are very perceptive and analytical with a strong understanding of people."
"You actually put into words what I have been feeling"
"I found you through an article in the Financial Times and I just listened to your first podcast.
I loved it! You actually put into words what I have been feeling about going back home, but not understanding why I was feeling that way. Anyway, thank you for doing this podcast and I look forward to listening to more."
"You always raise such pertinent issues… I wish I had read more of your articles before I went to the US as you provide great perspective for newbies."
"I find your podcast super helpful!"
"Just listening to your podcast now, I love the way you talk - very straightforward and encouraging!
I have lived in many countries alone, and then with my partner, but now a 3 year old son and planning to move. I find your podcast super helpful!
Thank you for sharing."
Just thought I’d drop you a line to say you’re doing great!
I found your site and relocation checklist when I found out my husband and I were moving to the UK from Australia, for his work. We had just under 4 months notice and knew we’d be living in rural England for 3.5 years.
Your short, informative articles were really helpful and easy to digest. We have been living in the UK for a little over 18 months now.
I thought there wouldn’t be much of a culture shock between home and here, but I was wrong. It’s not east, but we’re making the most of it, travelling Europe and exploring the UK.
Thanks for all your work

What is expat life really like?
Expat life is a journey through time zones and emotions. It can be a rollercoaster life at times, especially with children in the mix. Ultimately, it’s an incredible way of life and a fabulous experience for families bringing up expat kids.

There is absolutely no substitute for experience - whether that's expat experience, parenting experience or general life experience. I have the lot.
With my family (including pets) I spent 12 years living overseas in Japan, Germany and South Africa. Then we returned to the UK. So, I have seen real expat life from 'both ends'.
Expat life isn't always 'Insta-Perfect'. Yes, it's an incredible lifestyle. But many people have unrealistic expectations. Sugar-coating expat life doesn’t do anyone any favours.
You'll always get the truth from me.
Wanted to send a big thank you for your podcast.
We have been in a holding pattern about moving. As a result, I have been getting more and more anxious and am having a hard time doing anything,
I just listened to the Overcome Overwhelm episode and I already feel better. The anxiety is much less. I feel like I have a plan to help me focus while we wait things out.
And yes, I found it so helpful that I had to write to thank you straight away!

I chose to work with Carole as I listened to her podcasts, read her articles and was impressed by her experience, knowledge, professionalism, and also her down-to-earth, matter-of-fact style, which I resonated with.
