One to One with Jo Parfitt

One to One with Jo Parfitt

You also started up Career in Your Suitcase – what’s the story there and how has it expanded? Career in Your Suitcase began in Stavanger in 1996 when I attended my first women’s professional networking group. I thought I had nothing to say, but when I ended up chatting to the program’s organizer about my writing career spanning nearly a decade and three countries, she asked if I would be the next month’s speaker.

B at Home: A Wonderful Book for TCKs

B at Home: A Wonderful Book for TCKs

B at Home would be an excellent book for a parent and child to read together to help process an international move. Reading about Emma’s experience going through a similar transition will likely provide words for a TCK to begin processing a moving experience, opening up a conversation with parents.

Colin Guest – An Expat’s Experiences of Living in Turkey

An Expat’s Experiences of Living in Turkey tells the story off the author Colin Guest, from his relocation to Turkey with his wife in 1989, up to the present time. It was a life-changing move that gave both of them a lifestyle which for many is just a dream. Turkey may be a Muslim country with a culture very different from England, but the author describes how they both found it surprisingly easy to settle in. When they first arrived at Kemer, then a small village on the Mediterranean Coast, they knew just two English-speaking people. Undaunted, they quickly made friends, bought some land,...
