Episode One: Kristin Trummer, American-Swiss Expat Repat

Kristin Trummer and I became pen-pal friends when I was in the worst of the repatriation blues and she read a few of my blog posts and could relate. Kristin is an American back and forth expat-repat with her Swiss husband. Living abroad has made it so she and her husband are hesitant to put down roots in either country, and anxious about their children's cultural identity growing up in one place, but being from both.

Kristin and I had a great discussion about intercultural marriage, the horrors of nostalgia, how living abroad makes it so we never really stop comparing, and the differences between expat life with no local ties and immigrant life with local in-laws. I hope you'll give it a listen and let me know what you think in the comments.
