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

"Life as an expat in the area can be both exciting and challenging. The culture, language and customs are different from most home countries, and it can be difficult to adjust to a new way of life. However, there are plenty of expats who have gone before, so there is a community for expats to seek advice and make connections. Life in the area is generally multicultural, with a wide variety of restaurants, entertainment options, parks, and other activities for expats to explore. The cost of living is moderate and the transportation systems are reliable and convenient. Overall, life as an expat in the area can be a great experience, as long as one is open to new experiences and is willing to put in the effort to learn the new culture and make connections," commented one expat who made the move to Ukraine.
