Episode Four: Mari & Glenn, From Repats to Re-Expats

This week I managed to salvage the audio I thought was going to be unusable from my long and interesting and entertaining conversation with Glenn and Mari. Glenn and Mari are a Californian couple who hit a glass ceiling in each of their expat careers and decided to repatriate temporarily in order to get further qualifications and advancement and then return to expat life. With many twists and turns and surprises, they pulled it off and achieved their goal when they moved back to Europe in late 2017.

Glenn and Mari told me about their re-entry to the US and how it felt to take the plunge and return to expat life after four years back home. Please have a listen and if you like what you hear, be sure to subscribe and leave us a review! Thanks.


Episode Three: Alison Trainer

I'm back! And I'm so excited about today's episode with Alison Trainer. Alison is an opera singer, university professor and she's also the founder of the inimitable Grumpy Expat Facebook Group. Alison decided to leave her expat life behind and return to the US in 2017. She shared all about her re-entry, her career struggles as an expat woman and mother, and we talked about what makes a happy expat. 

I hope you'll enjoy it! And if you do, don't forget to leave a review. :) Thanks for listening!
