Miss Footloose

Most of my adult life I've been an expat living (happily) in a number of exotic locations. As a writer, I have a portable career.

When I started out, moving to a small town in Kenya, there were no expat coaches, no help for relocating, no help to adjust, no help to find a career overseas. Now there is a whole industry, and I find it fascinating.

Fortunately I was/am adventurous and flexible by nature (I am Dutch, and it might be in my genes) so I survived.

My best to all who start a new life and career overseas. Prerequisite number one: A sense of humor.


Hi Miss Footloose,

Thanks for sharing - I hope to see you back and sharing more about your own experiences building your career overseas!

Best wishes - and keep laughing!
