    When first moving to Washington, D.C., I didn't know many people outside of the office. InterNations has changed that with some exciting events.

Living in Charleston

Charleston had its hand in establishing the roots of early jazz music, and the music of Charleston had a huge impact on the rest of the United States. Geechee dances would accompany the music played by dock workers, which later inspired James P. Johnson to introduce the Charleston. Charleston has an incredible Tea Plantation that is worth visiting - once a place where slavery thrived, it is now a working plantation that still operates for business. The Charleston museum is also worth a look in, and it will teach you a thing or two about the city, so you can prepare for living in Charleston. If you are having trouble settling down to expatriate life, InterNations has features, articles, forums and discussion threads that can help you make the most of living in Charleston.

Moving to Charleston

Moving to Charleston might require certain pieces of paperwork, so InterNations has put together a guide to help you through the expatriation process. The articles in the Expat Magazine cover a range of topics, from moving abroad with your family to culture shock and aim to make moving to Charleston a little bit easier - by the end of reading you should have a better idea of how to progress with your move. Finding a suitable place to live in Charleston can be hard too. When deciding where to live you should think about the location of your office (unless you haven't found work yet), check to see if there are international schools for your children, and look at the shopping opportunities in the area. Some places in Charleston have a better reputation than others, so you should research those details too. If you're simply stuck for choice, or you don't know what the best option for your next move is, then the InterNations community can give you a helping hand.

Working in Charleston

Finding work can be even harder than finding a suitable place to live for you and your family. If you are considering working in Charleston, or you've been sent overseas to work by a current employer, you might want some guidance on working life as an expatriate. It's not always as simple as starting work at your new office. You have, after all, also moved to a foreign country –and there are all sorts of external pressures this move can bring with it. Breaking through cultural barriers, learning about foreign business etiquette, and making friends at work can be hard when there's a language barrier. The InterNations community, with the forums and discussion threads, and the Expat Magazine can be a crucial resource when adjusting to life as an expat.
