You’ve made the decision to move abroad.

Do you really know what you’re getting into?

Are you ready?

You can find all kinds of lists for packing, websites for taxes, books on culture shock. But has anyone told you that you might hate where you end up living? You might hate it for a really long time? Has anyone told you how to spell what you are becoming (e-x-p-a-t-r-i-a-t-e) so you don’t look silly on emails or posts? Have you heard how many horrible, embarrassing mistakes you’re allotted in the first week and how those numbers change, hopefully?

What do you really need to know?

Well, this short, fun list will help you out.

You can get it by simply signing up for my monthly newsletter, which comes out monthly. Mostly. It includes links to stories from the Horn of Africa, book suggestions, publishing news, and a look behind the scenes of Djibouti Jones.

I love helping people thrive while living abroad and maybe this list, with a few laughs, will help launch you on positive, exciting, average, mundane, joy-filled, productive adventure.

(*if you are already on the mailing list, there will be a download link in this month’s edition)
