The Modern Nomad and World Citizen. The Expat and the ‘Third Culture Children’

7minutesonline.com – by Nomad Sahara – 11.02.2017

Please feel free to translate the article, you will find a translate button on our website. Thank you.

Having lived many places in my ‘young’ life, I find it tremendously interesting and feel very fortunate to be able to discover and encounter the world, the different cultures, the lifestyles and the way of thinking and seeing the world and beyond. If we go on holidays we do not have the chance and time to immerse ourselves in the daily life of the visiting country. We journey as observers mostly staying at international hotels enjoying our cuisine which is readily available at most destinations. Lately there has been written a lot about the pros and cons of being an ‘Expat’ and the pros and cons for ‘Expat-children’.

Every single one of us is different and unique and so everyone will experience the ‘moving abroad’ differently.

If you have any thoughts and experiences yourself on being either an ‘Expat and or an Expat-child’ please write to us using the contact link. Please also mention, if you would like your comments to be published on 7minutesonline.

Thank you and until soon here on ‘7minuetsonline’!
