Budgeting, Expat Experiences and International Schools

The most terrifying part of moving abroad often isn’t culture shock, or leaving your family behind, or completely uprooting your life. It’s money. Will you be able to afford it? How will you be able to afford it?

We’ve put together a budgeting guide for expats moving to the UAE. And columnist Kathleen Peddicord has written this month about how you probably can’t afford not to retire abroad.If you’re moving to the UAE with children in tow, here’s a guide to some of the international schools there.

We’ve heard from expats from all around the world who have already taken the plunge. Here are some hilarious examples we compiled from readers describing their misadventures and misunderstandings when learning new languages.

You can also find interviews with expats in our ‘Expat Experiences‘ section. This week we’ve spoken to Candice in Argentina, Sara in Ireland, Merx in Malaysia, and Laura in Belize. Click through to read their experiences, and don’t forget to check out their blogs!

Speaking of expat blogs, here’s a list you might want to check out if you’re thinking about moving to the Caribbean.

And if you’ve been considering starting a blog yourself but haven’t done so yet, here’s why you should.
