Word from the Burbs. ๐Ÿ–๐Ÿป I feel like a functioning adult again driving a nice automatic car on the "right" side of the street! #expatproblems #travelwithkids

First world expat pleasures and pains: I can buy produce here. ๐ŸŽ‰ Apples cost about $1.30 apiece. ๐Ÿ’ธ I don't have a car, but the local grocery store will deliver to my door so I don't have to lug them up the hill. ๐Ÿšช Delivery takes well over an hour and wakes baby up 10 mins into her nap. ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ #expatproblems

When you think you got this and are going to walk away with a visa but then they tell you they need additional documentation.

A M E R I C A N ~ G I R L ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ when we first moved to the old US of A I had no idea our journey would Include making our own little American girl.

Typical French restaurant ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท Fact about me : Every time I'm going to France, I'm always making my groceries and then I'm bringing everything back in apartment in Dubai. #WhenYouMissYourFood #Struggle #Expatproblems #MyFridgeisSoInternational #BeJealous ๐Ÿ˜‚ (๐Ÿ“ธ: @meryldenis)

For someone who loves sachertorte so much- to the point where I will literally eat it at the side of the road, I should probably learn how to pronounce it correctly. Every time I order a slice of "sasha-tort" all that can be heard echoing throughout the streets of Munich is @shortstoriesandskirts shouting "IT'S CALLED ZACHER" ๐Ÿ˜‚ #ExpatProblems

Sooooo...basically they're saying that if I die, it's not their fault๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ฒ #expatproblems

I miss these tables of ยฃ8.99 books in English, complete with recommendations from the staff and reviews from literary critics. Oh Waterstones Brussels, why must you be so expensive!? Saint Gilles library, why does your English selection suck so badly!? 'Brussels' Facebook book exchange groups, why are you all located in the countryside which is completely inaccessible without a car!? #ijustwannaread #expatproblems #homesick #firstworldproblems #brusselslife

Go to Italy. Get Taco Bell ๐ŸŒฎ #expatproblems @avrabbitt

Moving is a giant PITA. Or maybe it's just me... ๐Ÿค”โ €
-โ €
But when the move is to another country instead of to another city/state, the pain becomes just a little bit bigger!โ €
-โ €
Julie McDonald and her husband recently moved to Egypt, and it has been bit of a roller coaster ride adjusting to a new part of the world and running culture.โ €

We talk about all of this and more on today's episode!โ €

Just y'know a 11,000 foot waterfall cascading down a hillside - this is Shannon Falls on the Sea to Sky highway that takes you from Vancouver to Whistler. (Ps. this isn't a cinemagraph, just a normal video. It was so still.)

12 years of moving overseas (six inter-continental moves) has taught me that when I'm doing the right thing regarding customs, immigration etc, it will usually go as well as can be expected...... But I'm always SO relieved and thankful when I get confirmation that it has!!! #thankful #prayerworks #provision #customs #missionarylife #expatproblems

Guys, I had THE most unpleasant sauna experience the other day. Regular readers of the blog will know that I am one American who love, love, love, LOVES her German sauna. But this horrible woman (who was unfortunately also American) almost ruined it for everyone. She didn't follow the sauna rules regarding silence during the Aufguss. She and her friend also came in and out of the Aufguss AFTER it had started - which is a major no-no. Then they blabbered on and on at full volume while the sauna meister was working. Everyone in the room, including me, shushed them - to which this whiny woman argued with the room as to why she didn't think they needed to be quiet, then informed everyone she was American (not sure what that was supposed to accomplish), and then got up, stormed out, dropped an expletive, and slammed the sauna door - TWICE. I don't get it; why can't people just be respectful? Grrrr. My husband and I decided to treat ourselves a little bit to wash away the negative vibes, and I must say, this burger did the trick! .

Some days it's hard to get to the gym... literally! The city is on lock down so I can't drive my car and there are checkpoints/ police at every intersection. #expatproblems #china #letsseehowlongthispostlastsbeforeitgetstakendownbychina

Bought the one in the middle today and I didn't like it. Most books in bookstores here are wrapped in cellophane paper so you can't flip through the pages before buying ๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“š#petpeeve #onlyinmalaysia #expatlife #expatproblems #expat #expatwoman #expatmom

Kenai, Alaska - They're ringing the bell at Kenai Joe's. Cold beers and strong cocktails being slung around the bar as old sea dogs muse nostalgic to anyone willing to listen. A few women congregate together, waiting for their men to come in from the water and the fish. They too talk of the good-ol'-days when the Reds and Kings ran heavy through the inlet and up the rivers, when there was a real livelihood in fishing. But now it all hangs on dim hopes as they listen to old Captain Tom recall the tides and weather from a July day in 1978 when salmon jumped into boats and the fisherman was like a priest, providing redemption and salvation to the wanton community. And Charlie, tired of hearing about the good-ol'-days, rings the bell again.
