The essentials for being an expat

Once again, thank you to Transitions Abroad for choosing my story, “3 Essentials You Need to Be an Expat,” as the second-place winning article for their expatriate writing contest.


This is the fourth year now that one of my articles has been chosen as a winner in this contest. You can check out all the 2018 winners here.

It’s easy to take a vacation in a fun and beautiful country like Mexico and decide you want to move there. It’s a lot harder once you’re faced with the practicalities of moving abroad.

In other articles, I’ve described the specific things you must do to move to Mexico. This new article, however, is more about what to expect in another country, not only Mexico, and how to prepare yourself. I also discuss the personality types that are best suited to living abroad. And money, of course.

Please click the link for the article, and thanks again to Transitions Abroad for being such a great supporter of my writing over the years.
