Moving to another country means joining a new community but, as expats, we know that sometimes it can be comforting to get in touch with people from our own country. People who speak our language and share the same background, can give us advice, bring us support or simply tell us about their experiences.
These Facebook communities organise their own events; meetings and activities – which is ideal for when you are feeling a bit homesick.
