The Life of an Expat, Part 2

Last week (thanks everyone!) we had a great discussion about the expatriate phenomenon of the whole "life on hold" concept.

This week, over on ACC, I discuss The Life of an Expat, Part 2: The curse of loving two countries. The question of where home is. And how instead of feeling more international and educated from living abroad, most of the time, I just feel more confused. Do you? Join the discussion here.

And don't forget your chance to win a copy of Chicken Soup for the Soul: All in the Family: 101 Incredible Stories about our Funny, Quirky, Lovable & "Dysfunctional" Families complete with essays by yours truly. Click here to enter your crazy family story in the comments for a chance to win.

I enjoyed both parts of your "Life of an Expat" essay. I have to say, home is where my husband and dog are. Except ... I have 3 adult children back in the greater Chicago area, so that is my other home! It's o.k. to have more than one, right?

I'm glad I had my dog before moving to Zurich - it's made life here feel more "normal". And Lucky loves it - life is good for a dog in Switzerland!

Some expat friends moved back to the U.S. this summer, so I inherited a few appliances - it's making life easier and serving to cement the fact that (for now) this is home!

Thanks. Glad you enjoyed the series. It's great that home can be where your family is. And yes, I think a person is lucky when they can have more than one home.
