Expat Well About Us

Welcome to our website!

We are a husband and wife who have been living abroad in different countries for most of our lives. Between the two of us we have lived in eighteen countries: 

  1. Australia (Sydney)
  2. Austria (Vienna)
  3. Belgium (Brussels)
  4. Bosnia and Herzegovina (Prijedor)
  5. Bulgaria (Sofia)
  6. Burkina Faso (Ouagadougou)
  7. Canada (Ottawa & Toronto)
  8. France (Lyon, Grenoble, Mulhouse, Albi & Le Puy en Velay)
  9. Germany (Berlin)
  10. India (Mumbai) 
  11. Italy (Forlì)
  12. Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur) 
  13. Morocco (Rabat) 
  14. Poland (Warsaw) 
  15. The Netherlands (The Hague)
  16. Turkey (Istanbul & Ankara) 
  17. United Kingdom (London & Leicester) 
  18. United States (Los Angeles & Boston) 

Each time we move to a new country we try to do some research online to give us a better idea of what we can expect in our new location. However, we often find that a lot of the important information you might want to know before deciding to move to a new location or look up once you have arrived are not covered in many of the existing expat focused information websites. 

We hope our website will be able to fill these gaps. 

Having both lived in these countries as children, students, young adults and now parents we realize that the type of information you are looking for can vary considerably depending on what stage of your life you are in. 

As a result, we try to provide you with information that is relevant to you whether you are a student looking to study abroad, a young professional looking to work abroad or a more established family looking to relocate abroad as a family unit. 

We hope you enjoy our site and wish you a smooth transition abroad!
