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 new 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.
