My fifth back to school

The 28 of August 2019, I landed in Kuwait for the fifth year in a row. As an expat, I feel like I am living smalls movings every summer. Every time I leave France to go to Kuwait, my suitcase is full and my heart a bit heavy. But I am also super excited and I can’t wait to be back in my flat.

Happy to drive my car in the streets I know, happy to be back in my routine. But this year, it was different. Let me tell you why.

Friendships when you live abroad

In the beginning, I wanted to talk about departures. How do you deal with it ? How do you protect yourself from it ? And… impossible for me to write about it. Because… you can’t deal with it and you can’t protect yourself from it. You just get used to it. But I often talked about friendships with my friends in France and my family. Even if the friends I’ve met here. What kind of friendships do you create when you live abroad ?

How I stopped having fears of trying new things

A few years ago, Mathilde decided to live abroad. I met Mathilde in high school and we don’t talk anymore. It’s just life, there is no reason, but I keep our conversations in mind. Mathilde is a young lady, really sweet and quiet. A bit discreet but really brave. When I think about her again, I realized that I learned a lot from her. But why do I talk about Mathilde ? Only because she is the one thanks to I am not scared to do new things. I’ll tell you how.
