Many expats have set "dreams" about the expatriate experience before they move abroad. We thought it would be interesting to see how those "dreams" have been fulfilled, and how they have not. Let us know below!

As a way of helping expats research life abroad, Expat Exchange uses advice shared in our Expat Report Series to create articles that aggregate information about specific topics relevant to international relocation. We never include private information when we do this. Even though we NEVER sell, rent, or share our members private information, please consider carefully what private or personal information you share with others in our Expat Reports. Read more
