Carole's Expat World

Because my 'expat world' has grown so much since I originally launched ExpatChild in 2012, I thought it was time I created a single page to hold all the information in one place. So, here are some details and links so you can find out who I am, what I do, where you can find me, and how I can help you with your move and life overseas.

All the quick links to key parts of my expat world!

Social Media

Let's connect!

I'm on most social media channels, but I'm most active on FacebookLinkedIn and Twitter, with Instagram peeking into my personal life - well the cats' lives, mainly! 

They say...

Thank you for always being so inspiring and spot-on with all you share. I feel you write for me. As a family with 3 kids, travelling as expats with my husband’s work, we absolutely love this lifestyle and it’s actually the only lifestyle our kids know… over the years I have become better to deal with family, friends and parent always asking when we will move ‘home’ again. Sometimes I wonder if it is the right thing, but when I read your articles, I again become very sure it is

Thank you so much! I am so grateful to have found your website.
I am a 100% medically retired American military veteran, and I am looking to relocate my family in search of a better place to live an learn new cultures, language.

Thankfully, I am retired and get a pension. Luckily, I get paid no matter what and would love to relocate with my children and husband.

This website is perfect for planning and asking myself, “Am I doing the right thing?” Thank you!

You always raise such pertinent issues. After moving back home to Australia after 8 years in the US, both our children had significant time in the American schooling system.

One graduated high school and is busy now in University, no worse off. The other had to switch mid-stream from one hemisphere to another, missing a good deal of time, so has been struggling to catch up.

All you can do is your best, to minimise disruption ff you even have any influence over the timing of your move, which most do not.

On the upside, the children have a much more global worldview and are richer for it. Hopefully the catch up period will even out eventually.
I wish I had read more of your articles before I wen to the US, and you provide a great perspective for newbies.
