Are you thinking about moving to a developing country? Have you already moved?

I’ve written an article on The top 10 tips of moving to a developing country over at Expat Quotes. The site provides information, guides and other services for expatriates around the world, with a global section and information on hundreds of individual countries. Their sister sites EasyExpat and BlogExpat provide a ton of information too.

I’d love your thoughts, do you agree with my tips? What would you suggest?

In other news:

I’ve been having fun with my 30 days of photographs over at Instagram. It has certainly got me taking more photos, so I’m happy with that.

  4. Very good tips, Chrissie. I guess one thing to keep in mind is that you can never be truly prepared, no matter how much preparation you have gone through. But that is also the exciting part, there will always be a lot of surprises!


    • Thanks Elisabeth. I think that is really important, you need to keep expectations under control and go with the flow!! It makes the surprises much more fun.


  5. Lovely tips. I think the only thing I’d add is that the more open you are to people, the more that you allow them into your life… and you benefit hugely 🙂


    • Thanks for this Zoe. You are exactly right, and I should have made it more explicit. After all, that’s one of the joys of travelling/living in another country with a different culture.


It's always great to hear from you. Please leave a comment.
