n. a person who leaves his or her native country
If you look up the synonyms for expat in a thesaurus you will findtraveller, wanderer and wayfarer in addition to alien, outcast and colonist.
Who am I? What am I?
More importantly, where is home?
If you are an expat..this will be a very familiar question
and one that many of us tend to mumble over when asked.
It's complicated, is my usual response.
If I really want to dodge the question,
I ask how much time they have for the answer.
What is important, is where I am now.
For the past four years I have resided
in Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), Vietnam
with my family...well, some of them,
for again it is complicated.
We are currently spread out between
Australia, America, Africa and Vietnam.
I have two.
I write about life at Collage of Life.
I write about Vietnam and my discoveries
here at Expat Diary: Viet Nam.
This is a little blog..
I hope to leave it a much richer
one for all who read it.
If you live in Vietnam,
if you plan to travel to Vietnam,
if you would like to reconnect with Vietnam
or simply learn about Vietnam...
I hope you find what you are looking for.
To all of you, I say welcome and thank you.
I appreciate your time and attention...truly!
If you have a question,
please feel free to write to me
I look forward to it!
