4S1F61 Don't Rely On Living Your Life Like It Was Back Home

An expat may not always agree with how things are done in their host nation and this shouldn't be a surprise. By keeping an open mind and heart a lot can be learned from an overseas experience. These experiences may not always be good but they may help an expat further understand him or her self and the other people who are also citizens of this planet.

With this in mind, expats should allow themselves to see more of the benefits of life within their host nation without prejudice. By doing so, they may discover that something like a local custom or public service is beneficial to the local population and could be implemented even in their home nation.

In this episode, we share concepts like this with American expat Marjorie Freimuth who has lived in Austria, Ireland and the Czech Republic. Marjorie, who at the time of this interview is living in Asia, has written about her overseas experiences for the Huffington Post. She shares with us some of her cross-cultural interactions along with the challenges faced while living abroad.
