Expat Magazines / Website with Cultural and Intellectual Events Listings
Becoming (or being) an expatriate (expat) is as exciting as it is frightening. A life in a new place can bring all kinds of new things. From new food and drinks to new habits and rituals. But you can also encounter expat problems. Common problems expats face are loneliness, cultural differences, sorting out health care, cost of living, finding proper schools for children, learning the language and relationship problems. Other, underestimated, expat problems are: running away from your problems at home, bad preparation, and not being able to choose the friends you want. Some expat problems are easier to deal with than others.
