THIS IS MY thirteenth international move. I started off moving as a daughter, then as a student, then for work, then for love and now as a mom.
You may be a nomad like me and only know the place you live in for a couple of years. Or maybe it’s where you have spent the better part of your life. Perhaps you were born there and went to school down the street from where you work now. That is such an alien concept to me that I’m just going to go ahead and ignore that option. I am also going to assume that you have a family, i.e. kids, or at least a spouse. If you don’t most of this still applies to you, just subtract 1.¾ cups of stress and 2.5 cups of guilt and replace with booze. It adds up and keeps everyone happy.
