Truly Expat

My story of travelling through the world ​

Why I do, what I do!
So 13 years ago, my husband and I set off with our little family in tow embarking on a short term assignment in a place called Taiwan. Without any knowledge of expat life, we took this short term assignment on as a new exciting adventure, little did we know it changed the direction of our life. Thirteen years later with seven posting under our belt, countless hours flying back and forwards between my expat life in Singapore and the somewhat normality of my life with our children in our home country, I am here to give you advice on all things truly expat.
This website is a sneak peek into my daily life with three Third Culture Kids (TCK), along with advice on what to do when moving abroad. Whether you are here for inspiration on travel or you are here to have a read about other expats stories, this website is designed to give you a little of everything that is truly expat.
This life as an expat (especially a trailing spouse), is not easy but it is the way we have chosen to live our life. Whether you are here to figure out whether this is the life for you or perhaps you have headed over to find out why we do what we do, everyone is welcome.
