Experiences of Family Life Abroad

Helena Jalanka

When I, my husband and our two-year-old child moved abroad, it was only supposed to be for six months. Seven years later, and one family member more, we’re still here! I know. I know. It’s a common story among people who move countries: the journey can take you and it can shape you. The ride is bumpy but mighty. If you’re joining us, remember to pack your bags with curiosity and humour!

My family has lived in Finland, Australia, Singapore and Switzerland. This book shares our experiences and adds to them some wise words from intercultural experts on the big issues: moving; adapting; language; weather; education; home and visiting family and friends in the native country. Each chapter is a fun and useful mix of cartoons, tips and stories. This may seem like a rollercoaster but it’s real life to us and many others abroad. Hop on board!

With 70 survive and thrive tips and 35 real-life cartoons.
