My short, but very sweet, expat life
Argh, just nine months to go until we leave Uncle Sam’s shores for good. It’s happening fast.
But first, I have to endure this blasted winter (Gawd, I hate winter!). It’s flippin’ freezing already.
We’ll be heading back to the UK for a quick visit in January. The reason? It’s the only time of year the weather is better than here on the East Coast of the USA! 😉 Oh, yes, and to see friends and family of course! (And make all sorts of arrangements for our return home 😦 )
Anyway, I recently wrote a heartfelt article about what it’s like to be a ‘temporary expat’. There are good things, and there are bad things, and there is a way of life that I’ve learned to live.
Here’s a snippet:
‘Working in the American workplace, attending American events, having American friends, integrating into the American community, and being genuinely exposed to the USA and its people, its culture and its sensibilities has been the richest, most rewarding experience of my expat life.’
But find out what I had to say in full here. Enjoy!
