So begins part 2 of arriving as a expat and becoming a local. This is part of a series which will assist you with becoming a expat.

Many readers have requested assistance, advice and information on tips and tricks of being a expat and living the expat life in the Bay Area.

So to answer your question the first tip is to discover.

Discover the place you live, get to know your local community and enjoy what your city has to offer.

The Bay Area has an array of things to do. No matter what your interests are, be it the arts, food and wine, sports recreation, history and nature there is something for you.

When arriving to a new destination the first thing I alway do is go on. Hop on/ off bus. It may not sound luxurious or overly exciting compare to other tours but it allows you to get your bearings, a lay of the land and start to discover what the town has to offer.

This will assist with finding what neighborhood you would like to live in, the local spots to eat and background on the community.

For San Fransisco check out http://www.hop-on-hop-off-bus.com/san-francisco-bus-tours for tours.

Being a expat a lot of the time you don’t chose where you go or are posted and that means that maybe the destination isn’t a major city and may not have tours. So if that is the case grap a map and make your own tour. Check out all the major attractions of the town and get the lay of the land that way.

Once I have completed the tour then it is time to embrace the expat experience!

I find, I always feel better about a place once I have done some discovering. Check out the local spots, get a feel for the town and then you can make a start in getting settled.

First stop discover, second stop research!

Let the expat journey continue!
