Quotes to help you through hard times

There’s no denying that relocating is hard work, both physically and mentally. Even the most capable people can face times of despondency and despair in the face of broken removal boxes and attempting to find where the supermarket is located in a new country.

At times like these I find it useful to exercise some of my ‘successful expat personality characteristics‘ and if they don’t work, I turn to the wise words of others… and then possibly to gin and tonic!
