We’re already into double digits (gasp!) in January, and fortunately my New Year’s resolutions for 2013 are going swimmingly. I say this because I want you to know that I have not neglected you, my Adventurer community. (See how neatly I just tied you back to one of my resolutions? Impressive, I know.) It’s just that I’m recently […]

Earlier this year I introduced Expats A to Z,  a new series of posts about the little things that can make a difference in how we approach some of the challenges and experiences of expat life. I’m talking about those qualities and traits that we can nurture within us not only to simply survive but thrive […]

It is an exciting day here in Expat Land: we’re madly flapping our wings for take-off, determined to catch the wind currents, achieve flight and soar. ‘What’s with the flight metaphors?’ you ask. ‘They’re flying left and right.’ Heh heh. Today marks the book launch of the second edition of Forced to Fly: An Anthology of Writings That Will Make […]

You know the old adage ‘two heads are better than one’? Well, during the summer when I learned that Evelyn Simpson (aka The Smart Expat) and Louise Wiles (aka Success Abroad Coaching) were joining forces to conduct the Career Choice & Accompanying Partner Survey, I knew this dynamic duo would be a formidable combination.

Lately I’ve been busy working on my book about the importance of emotional resilience in expat life. I won’t kid you: it’s been, well, challenging to try to cover the full range of issues I believe are important, and to address them in a fitting manner. Especially when real life continually intervenes. Sheesh, what’s up with that? Still, I’m […]

Earlier this year I read what I can only describe as an incredibly uplifting book, but I am only now getting around to sharing it with you. Shame on me, because it is the kind of informative, thought-provoking book that stays on your mind long after you read it. Its name? In Their Own Voice: […]

Anyone who tries to tell you that expat life is a piece of cake, with everyone living the high life and doing whatever they please wherever they want to, is sadly misinformed. The truth is, living abroad is a lot like living in your home/birth/passport country. Except for the whole cross-cultural aspect to it, and the […]

If you’ve read me for any length of time, you’ll know what a huge fan of Wordgeyser I am. Wordgeyser was the inaugural introductee of my feature, ‘Ladies and Gentlemen, Introducing…’. And for good reason. I can’t help it if every time she takes pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard), she waxes in a lyrical […]

Earlier this month I was over at 4 kids, 20 suitcases and a beagle reading Shamozal’s thought-provoking post So, Where Are You From?
