Remember back in 2017, when I asked you to take our survey for internationals? This was the first step in a book I’m co-writing with cross-cultural business consultant Regina Reinhardt. I’m happy to now share the results with the entire Expat Nest community. ?
The results got me reflecting on my international lifestyle, and sense of place in the world.
Here’s a sneak peek:
✅ While abroad you mostly miss (1) family and friends, (2) culture, (3) familiarity and (4) climate. More specifically, you mentioned that you miss the daily, face-to-face routine interactions with your close friends and family members. Many of you also mentioned the importance of your culture’s food!
✅ 63% of you stated that both your parents are monocultural.
✅ Almost two-thirds of you stated that the culture you feel most at ease with “changes all the time”.

Again, a heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who took part! Your answers will play an essential role in helping us to help others who are navigating the international life…?
I hope you find the results as interesting as I do. Drop me an email if something really resonates with you, or leave a comment on the blog.
