As an expat (a person who lives and works in a country outside of their home country), I have lived in five different countries around the world (Egypt, Poland, China, Malaysia, and Mexico). I am often asked a variety of questions, from what made me take the leap, to what the cost of living is like and is it much cheaper to live in another country.
And now it’s time for me to answer your questions, travel family. I want to know everything you want to know about moving and living abroad.
Right now, many companies are pivoting to allow more employees to work from home or even remotely, giving you more freedom than ever before.
Maybe you’re vegan and afraid that places outside of America won’t have a plethora of options for you. False! My husband is vegan and has lived in 8 countries.

Or maybe you have debt and think you shouldn’t even consider moving overseas until you tackle it all. False! I have had both student loan debt and other debts and with a combination of living in countries with a low cost of living and the amazing personal-finance articles we have under Two Cents, I’ve been able to pay down debts and raise my credit score.
No question is off the table (unless it’s wildly offensive). I am prepared to give you all of the ins and outs of moving abroad for couples, singles, parents, retirees—I can cover it all.
Add your questions in the comment section and I’ll get to work on stories that can help you get started on your journey.
