What's your Stage in the Expat Journey?
Pre-departure: I am really doing this?
Honeymoon: Vacations never felt like this
Culture Shock: Is this really happening?
Transformation: Finding your groove
Integration: A whole new reality

We were surprised and pleased to have expats respond and share their status on the wild voyage of expatriation.
@BlogExpat I'm at the "reality sinking in" stage. I hate it when the world infringes on my fantasies.— Scott Bergstein (@PugliaBound) November 7, 2013
@BlogExpat been here 12 years now, sunk in, bi-cultural and married to a local.— Louise H-S (@MLHS_postnote) November 7, 2013
@BlogExpat We are nearing the end of our expat time, so I'm in the early stages of mourning the life I've come to know and love abroad.— Shannon (@Shannonthemrs) November 7, 2013
@BlogExpat I am in between transformation and integration. I still am getting used to some things, but fairly comfortable now.— Caitlin Downs (@ktayd13) November 7, 2013
@BlogExpat A year and a half in and loving it more than ever!— Bangkokgirl Blog (@BangkokgirlBlog) November 8, 2013
@BlogExpat Nearly 3 years in and I'm settling into the integration stage.— Cheylene (@wanderbliss) November 8, 2013
