Guest post on expat+HAREM about my expat experiences

I was honored when the expat+HAREM editor asked me to do a guest post for their site, which is dedicated to aspects of the expatriate experience. My post is up today, and you can read it here.

If you've ever lived abroad or have an expatriate in the family, take some time to explore the posts and conversations on the site, which does a great job giving the reader bite-sized (300 words or less!) food for thought. And the comments are just as interesting as the posts!

    Scott – thank you.
    You’ve started a good blog, and with that subject you’ll never run out of things to write about. The photo of the Norway hike took my breath away – incredible.
    Catherine – thanks! It’s great to be a part of the expat+HAREM community.
