Expat Life

Working overseas has many challenges.  One of them is being away from family and having that connection with family on a daily basis.  But I have come to realise that the people you meet and socialise with overseas become your family.  Robert and I feel so fortunate that we work in a very loving, supportive community with many families who we love to spend our time and share our life with.  They are our family over here; we support and love them and that love and support is reciprocated ten fold.

On Good Friday, a bunch of families took a trip out to the Scandinavian Forest for an egg hunt and sunset BBQ.  We had so much fun!  The Scandinavian Forest is a very popular place on a Friday with families who like to picnic.  The sad thing is, those families leave their trash behind so the forest has become very dirty.  Efforts have been made to clear it and we noticed that there are now bins so people can throw their rubbish away as they leave.  Will it have an impact or will people still leave rubbish behind?  We shall see.
