What is it you Khan’t face?
Do you want the long or the short answer. The main reason was wanting to bring my girls up in a safe environment. We had an opportunity to build a house and have a very different lifestyle to what we had in the UK. Oh and the weather was a huge factor. I love outdoor living in the sun! We are celebrating 5 years in Portugal.
How have these differences influenced you?
How many children do you have and who are they?
What school do your children go to and what other schools have they attended?
What is your job?If you are trailing spouse then how do you spend your time?
What advice would you give to a person who is soon to be an expatriate?Find an online community for hints and tips in the area, especially if you are renovating or building a property and also to find other parents with children. Although I have still very few friends here, the ones I have made have been invaluable to the children and I.
The best thing about living in …………….?( you choose which country) Portugal is stunning…in just an hour we can be at the beach or the mountains, 1 and half from two big cities. oh and also the slow place of life, except when you are in a hurry to get things done lol!
WHAT is the most challenging thing about being an expatmumma? Sometimes the isolation, on arriving we were very unfortunate to have a house fire, with my partner away it was a very challenging time. I literally had very few friends and the ones I thought I had ,exploited my situation. It was a steep learning curve.
Any last thoughts?
What is it you simply KHAN’t Face living in ……….?( you choose which country )
