If your children are younger, you might need some help around the house with things like picking them up from school, helping them with homework, and the day to day minutiae of life.

We caught up with several people this week to talk about their lives abroad: Kev Harrison in Lisbon, Co-Founder of BonAppetour Rinita Vanjre Ravi, Kristine Simelda in Dominica, Chris Morvan in Suriname, and Joy Hanford in Portugal.
