Présentation de l'éditeur
“So, when I had an opportunity to relocate, I didn’t hesitate for one second… and here I am.” So begins the story of many expats as they are told in the pages of this book.
With the Internet’s increased accessibility, many blogs have been created and expats have embraced this new medium of communication in order to share their experience. Since 2011, BlogExpat.com has been a public voice for many expat bloggers through regular interviews published on the website. This book offers a small number of them that we have selected for you.
Those interviewed have become expats for a number of different reasons. Many are attracted by the idea of living in a foreign country. What is abroad? Is the grass greener elsewhere? How do people live there? What are their customs? How would I live in this country?
We imagine throughout the different stories that ties with family or friends are not as undermined as they might have been a while ago. Internet, Skype and social networks have reduced the distance between people. The long-distance disappears and kilometres are no longer an obstacle.
These interviews are snapshots; they express opinions delivered at one time and they may have evolved later. Comments reflect the thoughts of their author at that moment, with their share of subjectivity.
You must read this book as a photo album, allowing you to discover a world view, at a given angle.

However, the stories selected did get rather repetative after a while. I'm familiar with the usual expat stories about moving abroad for love, career change or advancement. I'm also very famiiar with the headaches of bureaucracy and the advice of keeping an open mind wherever you go. Most of the stories in this book repeated those ideas and simply changed the origin and destination of the expat telling the story.
Even a novice at the expat life surely does not need the same points driven home over and over again through the course of ONE book.
As similar as many expat stories can be, surely the editiors could have found a bit more variation in the many they had available to them when compiling this collection.
This is more than an individual story. It is the story of us as people and the world we live in today.
