Expat.com – A New Experience

expat.comMea culpa! Julien from Expat.com asked me if I would write a post on the changes to the site. I said I would, put the code into a post, but then got busy with other things and forgot all about it.

I just received an e-mail with the current list of questions people are asking those of us living in Hungary, which triggered the memory switch.

This is the information that Julien sent, but I have to say, over the years that I have been a member, it has really impressed me how vital this service is. Posted questions receive numerous responses from others who offer genuine advice. It has been great to see the development over the years.

Created as an expat-blog 10 years ago, it was a directory for expatriates’ blogs. With a makeover, it now offers a totally version brand along with a new name: Expat.com.

Julien stated, “Dedicated to life abroad, Expat.com helps you throughout your project, whether you are about to relocate or already living in Hungary.” However, I have to add that this site is definitely not limited to Hungary. Since we continue to return to Ecuador, I just did a search. There are 12,075 members in Ecuador.

Expat.com provides expats and soon-to-be expats with a wide range of features aiding their organization for their expat professional and daily expat living in Hungary or any of many other countries. On the site, you will find forums, job postings, testimonies, expat guides, events, business directories and more. In short, you are likely to find information on all expat related subjects all in one handy place. There is less of a need to hunt down different necessities individually.

The best part is Expat.com website is free to join and interact with others. This is where expats share experience, ask questions, find answers, and get advice from the other members. This makes their expat experience a success!

Here are some facts:
Initially created in 2005 as Expat-Blog
It now has more than 1.5 million members with more than 2,586,069 posts
In Hungary alone, there are 5,473 members

After completing my Ed.D., the frustration of finding a teaching position where I was willing to live, led to Ron and I leaving the country. We intended to travel for a year before settling somewhere in MA or RI.

We left the US without any credit card debt, no car payments and our house mortgage paid by renters. We had $10,000 in the bank to make our way through a year.
