An Expat Talks about Living in Lake Atitlan, Guatemala

What is the name of the city or town that you are reporting on?

Lake Atitlan

Describe how you "dreamed" expat life would be before you moved overseas. Please provide as much detail as possible.

I expected that my relocation to Central America would not be easy and that it would take time to adjust.

How has your expat experience met the expectations you dreamed about before you moved abroad?

I have had many new experiences that have helped me to develop a more profound perspective about the world outside of my home country and I would never have had this opportunity had I not ventured. The educational experience exceeded far more than I could have ever obtained from an educational institution.

How has your expat experience NOT met the expectations you dreamed about before you moved abroad?
