When we asked people living abroad what life is like in their areas and how people spend their time, they said...

"The husbands lives of course revolve around work and golf as in all expat posts. There are some very good private clubs for all sports. The wives socialize a lot, are active in sports and many charity activities organized by the various associations. School events are also a good way to meet new people," wrote a member who made the move to Istanbul, Turkey.
