Expat Life

For many Matadorians, travel might not mean “travel” at all, but rather immersing oneself in a foreign culture as an expat. The potential payoffs are huge: language acquisition, adopting a new way of seeing the world, really “getting” a place to an extent that passers-through aren’t able to.

There are hardships too. Expats have to find a place to live and work, connect with a new social circle, and deal with homesickness, all while navigating a new language and culture.

With the help of its editorial staff and expat contributors around the world, Matador has generated articles on all aspects of this form of living / traveling.
