I’m a Canadian that got swept up into the expat world in 2010 when my husband and I decided to give living in France a shot. After a year in Paris and a ‘baguette’ in the oven, we knew our lives were about to get turned upside down. Opportunity presented itself and we moved south; to a quieter, slower pace of French life. It didn’t take long for our ‘baguette’ to become a sibling to a little ‘croissant’ et voila; it’s bliss, it’s madness, it’s beautiful chaos!
We spent five glorious years in France and now that we’re gone it seemed like a blink of an eye. We now live in Borneo, Indonesia, where our everyday life if far different from that in France.
Trying to assimilate into a foreign country is no easy task! Over the years, some bizarre things have gone on in our lives. It’s time to share the laughter. I try my best to make light of uncomfortable situations and use humour to diffuse the awkward moments I often find myself in, but this is much easier said than done when you’re operating in another language. Join me for a laugh as I share the craziness that is my life as an Expat Mom.
