5 Top tips for embracing being a expat

27 Aug

Yesterday I was asked by a fellow expat what my top tips for embracing being a expat. So hence my new post.

Below are my top tips for expats from a expat.

1. Embrace the country you are living in- enjoy local events, holidays and country events. From thanksgiving, to 4th July to local wine events.

2. Meet new people with similar interests- join a sports club or a theatre group. Such as as playing footy with GGAFL ( http://www.ggafl.com/) or sing with Broadway Chorus ( http://www.broadwaychorus.org/)

3. Research, research, research- learn about the area you live, what’s going on, upcoming events and expats in your area. It sounds cliche but research really pays off.

4. Travel- travel around the country you are living. Explore what the area has to offer. Also countries near you. Make a buck list of places to go and save and travel to as many as you can.

5. Speak to other expats-. The best advice comes from expats. From how long will the DMV take to how much will car insurance cost.
