4S1F30 Expat Dilemmas

Recently I’ve come across loads of articles stating the “Top #” of places to live as an expat. After a while, I’ve found these lists on the edge of becoming misleading and sometimes down right biased.

These “ Top #” lists point out the best nations to:

 Retire  / Start a new business  /  Work or Do business /  Get health care / Find a partner

Study or Do research  / Learn a new skill / Find romance /  Start a family /  Etc,……

I am finding that these oversimplified statements are lacking fully developed background information about the locations listed. I’m afraid, that this may cause some people to develop the wrong impression about an overseas location and make incorrect decisions about moving to a particular location.

As an expat you have to learn that no place is a perfect place. Expats should take the positive elements around them and developed a healthy relationship in their second home.  They have come to learn that there may be things in their new environment they don’t agree with or can change.

Please understand that Paradise doesn’t exist and your host nation is not obligated to change because of any personal conflicts you may be having.   

POINTS TO REMEMBER:
