As I was reading it, I wish I had this guide before we moved to Sweden. It was one of those, "Man, why couldn't I have read this before we moved instead of after?" thoughts. It remains at the top of my recommended resources for anyone considering a move abroad or relocation.
Clara's narrative style is like that of a good friend guiding you through one of the most difficult life-decisions you've ever made over a nice cup of coffee (or tea since she is British). She is calm, humorous, and keeps things in perspective. The world "trailing spouse" is one that should be abolished as Clara makes it clear that accompanying partners are anything but "trailing." Clara walks you through many of the decisions that you'll need to make when moving abroad.
This book covers almost every topic and the kitchen sink. I would recommend purchasing both paperback and ebook. Why? Because it is so helpful to have a physical book in your hands for easy reference and the ebook is hyperlinked to a gazillion websites that are much easier to click than type in by hand.
While there is no way to prevent culture shock, at least you can expect the unexpected with this book. Clara's extensive personal experience combined with her contributor interviews of over 70 expats will leave you feeling like you just consulted with some of the world's top experts on living abroad.
The tips, stories, and anecdotes within this book are beyond helpful in reassuring you that while there will be bumps along the road, you are on the right path for a successful relocation and can handle whatever life throws at you.
I really think it would be an excellent guide for organizations to give to new staff in their new country, before they embark on their new adventure.
It's really comforted me knowing I'm not mad, nor am I a negative Nellie when I read about similar experiences.
It's got brilliant tips and links to various internet sites that will help with information on moving and settling in to even how to shop!How the best way to tackle loneliness in your new home because
It's really good listening to other people's mistakes because we often learn more by listening to what's gone wrong so we can avoid those pitfalls ourselves.
It's not a negative book in the slightest it's a guide to help improve your life as an expat partner who is often prohibited from working abroad.
It's well written and easy to read I highly recommend it for anyone embarking on a new life abroad or even if you are currently an expat it's still really beneficial. Plus it cover the whole wide world!
