Becoming expat is not only about working abroad.
It is a much bigger and more exciting idea than that.
It is about what we plan to do with our lives and how we want to spend our limited time on this planet. It deeply reflects and influences our approach of life and our lives’ vision and mission. Taking the risk and moving abroad is a life changing decision. It trades the known for the unknown, the common for the uncommon and the certain for the uncertain. International (ad)ventures put us in a place where the magic of growth happens, and that is outside our well protected nests, our cozily padded comfort zones. Moving overseas means leaving the line of least resistance and starting a cross-road voyage filled with both chances and risks.
Mastering the move overseas both professionally and personally is ultimately challenging and rewarding at the same time. The Expat Journal has been founded to inform, inspire, encourage and support (aspiring) expats around the globe to create lives abroad full of happiness and success.
