Eight years ago, I landed on Australian soil and began my life as an "expat". Honestly, I'm not sure that I even knew the term "expat" then. What I did know...this was going to be a massive life change and challenge with new adventures in store for me.
The term "rollercoaster ride" is often used as a metaphor for life when we experience peaks and valleys, highs and lows, twists and turns, fear and exhilaration. The last 8 years of my life could be described by all of these things and more.
And, would you look at that. Bon Jovi has a song on their new album titled "Roller Coaster", and it's one of my faves. How fitting.
Happy "expativersary" to me!
