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

"Living as an expat in an area is an exciting and unique experience. Being an expat allows you to partake in a one-of-a-kind cultural experience while making new friends along the way. It is a chance to make life-long connections with people from various backgrounds. Aside from the intercultural connections, the area can offer wonderful opportunities for sightseeing and exploration. Additionally, the area may provide the opportunity to practice a new language, learn the local customs, and participate in local events. With the right mindset and preparation, living as an expat in an area can be an incredible journey full of rewarding and memorable experiences," wrote a member who made the move to Brazil.

"Peoples lives, no joke, revolve around the beach and sports. You will meet many people by just going to the beach or walking on the beach front and around the Lagoa (lagoon). Brazilians are very easy going; they talk to you all the time and everywhere. Some knowledge of the language is essential. Nobody, outside the tourist industry, speaks any English or any other language for that matter, but Portuguese," explained one expat living in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
