Expatriates, Inpatriates, Immigrant & Nomads

“THERE HAVE BEEN MANY EXPATRIATES, but few people have legally expatriated. Living abroad is one thing; losing one’s citizenship is another.” (cited). The majority of those who are living in a country other than their birth country are more than likely not dual citizens, or have renounced citizenship of their birth country. We use the term ‘expat’ so loosely today meaning one who has chosen to live in a country other than their ‘home’ country.
The glamour and adventure of a nomadic life can wear off quickly. When a crisis hits it’s even more life challenging. Are you exploring this journey or on it already?
