On my blog and in my App I choose to focus on the bright side of life in Rome as an expat. That said, expatriate life is not always a prosecco in palazzos and weekday lunch outings. Living away from home, family, friends can be lonely and isolating no matter how glamorous the current post is.

Happy or struggling, new to game or seasoned old-timer, Expat Confessions: 50 answers to Your Real Life Questions about Living Abroad is an excellent read and useful resource.

I received a free copy of this book in return for an honest review.

Expat Women: Confessions doesn't seek to be an in-depth guide to every expat location or issue, but instead is an excellent introduction to some of the emotional and practical hurdles you might face.

I am sure this book is a valuable resource of information for Ex Pat Women in general, just not for me. I do not really fit into any of the categories, except as an ‘Empty Nester’.

As an expat I found this book incredibly helpful and insightful. It deals with the real expat problems, some of which don't fit the image of an Expat Woman. Highly recommended for prospective, new and seasoned expats (and not just the women).
Fun for expats to read and see themselves.
