Were you tired of your country of origin? Did the political situation drive you out or was it rather that the country you live in now had enticing opportunities? Were you sent to your current location by an employer or did you spend years choosing carefully? Did you follow family members? I used to feel like an expat in Germany, even though I was born there and now enjoy living a neutral life where I can assemble my life anew to my liking. Share your thoughts, if you like.
