Here’s a book description:
Who are the 21st-century expats? Do you wonder what motivates millions around the world to leave their homes, family and friends to immerse themselves in unfamiliar cultures, learn foreign languages and get to know new people? Have you considered joining them?
It’s a movement; the number of expats grows as we become more global and mobile. While the ages, locations and experiences of these 31 internationals differ, their stories inform, inspire and expose the common threads connecting those who choose this lifestyle.
What do they find at home abroad? Some find love and romance, adventure, an economical lifestyle or satisfaction in a new job; others find rewarding retirement years; some discover a new way of life — and some discover themselves.
Betsy and Mark Blondin have traveled and lived in diverse places in Latin America and Europe during the last six years, meeting expats who had wonderful stories that inspired this book. They have three grown children and enjoy the slow-travel lifestyle. Betsy is a freelance editor and Mark is a data storage consultant. Together they first published Migraine Expressions: A Creative Journey through Life with Migraine, and they enjoy helping others publish their books.
