  3. If there’s one thing I have learned from living in so many different countries over the past decade is that community can make all the difference.

  8. French school. They’ve really got things figured out over there! Aside from NEVER having to pack your kid a lunch; my favourite thing had to be the configuration of the school calendar.

  14. A Call for Submissions!!! No one has stories like expats have stories.

  15. Ever have a place that feels like home even thought you aren’t from there? By now we all know that for me, that place is France.
