Life Changes, Healthcare And Being Happy Overseas

Moving abroad is a big life change, even if you’re an adaptable person who’s open to new experiences. Columnist Rita Golstein-Galperin talks about some of the big changes you can expect when you relocate. And Kathleen Peddicord tells us the secret to being happy overseas.The weather is something we don’t always give very much thought to, but it can come as a huge shock if you move to a place that’s much warmer than you’re used to – like the Bahamas – or much colder, like Denmark. Of course, if you’re looking for fun in the sun, Australia is one of the top expat destinations.

Healthcare is another challenge expats have to deal with; each country’s standards and types of healthcare differ wildly, and it can feel like you’re trying to navigate a labyrinth of confusing terminology. This week we’ve put together a guide to the UK's NHS for new arrivals there, and a guide to healthcare in Argentina.

Finance is yet another big question – if you’re trying to decide where to live next and you have some financial goals you want to achieve, Saudi Arabia might be the place for you. Our financial update keeps you informed of expat-related finance news from around the world.

If you’ve started the new year with no idea what your goals and resolutions for 2017 might be, we have a few suggestions for you.

And of course, we have some recommended expat blogs and social media accounts for you to look at: in South Korea, Austria, Switzerland, Taiwan and Turkey.

What better way of learning about expat life than hearing from expats themselves? This week, James shares his experience of life in Germany, and Lindsay talks about family life in South Korea.
