Expat is short for expatriate - a person who is living and perhaps working in a country that is not his or her home country. There are expats all over the world, living many different lifestyles.
Even though I've been living as an expat for 30+ years, I haven't used that term to apply to myself because the word 'expat' often conjures up a vision of someone who's living in grand style. That has never been descriptive of my lifestyle, but technically, I'm still an expat.
When I visit the U.S., both new and old friends ask me lots of questions about living and working in a foreign country. I'm hoping ExpatMojo will answer some of their questions.
So please join me here for an adventure on ExpatMojo.
