On my iPad, a new book by Andrea Martins and
Victoria Hepworth, Expat Women: Confessions- 50 Answers to your
Real-Life Questions about Living Abroad. I was recently asked
to read and comment on this book and was happy to do so. The request could not
have come at a better time with move # six sits before us.
The book covers just about everything.
Here is a sample....
culture shock, trailing spouses,
clubs, making fiends, household help,
Career and Money:
work-life balance, loss of career,
financial difficulties, starting a business
pregnancy, adoption, teenagers,
special needs, bilingual children,
trailing man, intercultural couples,
divorce, infidelity, when one wants to go home
holiday sadness, retiring abroad,
aging parents, medical treatment abroad,
friends back home
sudden exit, visa expiry,
reverse culture shock
I have added the book to my summer reading collection. It is the perfect sort of book
for my iPad for it is one that I see myself referring to in the years to come.
If you are considering an expat life, are new to the expat phenomenon,
are a well seasoned expat or are in the throws of ' heading home'
after many years away, you will find this book helpful.
