However, the stories selected did get rather repetative after a while. I'm familiar with the usual expat stories about moving abroad for love, career change or advancement. I'm also very famiiar with the headaches of bureaucracy and the advice of keeping an open mind wherever you go. Most of the stories in this book repeated those ideas and simply changed the origin and destination of the expat telling the story.
Even a novice at the expat life surely does not need the same points driven home over and over again through the course of ONE book.
As similar as many expat stories can be, surely the editiors could have found a bit more variation in the many they had available to them when compiling this collection.
It is a perfect gift…
- For young expats who will benefit from short real-life stories. => This guide will provide you with some useful tips, and help you prepare your relocation.
- For older expats who will relive special moments. => This book will bring you back happy memories, and put a smile on your face.
- For friends and family at home who will get a glimpse into the life of an expat. => You will get a chance to comprehend the challenges that your loved ones are facing, as well as their joy and excitement.
This is more than an individual story. It is the story of us as people and the world we live in today.
