But as the wise and experienced initiates of the expat realm will tell you, chartering into unknown territory is half the fun.

That being said, there's no better way to prepare yourself for a move abroad than to read about the trials and tribulations of expats living and working overseas who've been there, done that.

That's why as part of our expat living section we've collected hundreds of unique articles, personal interviews, pieces of expert advice and fast fact sheets that can help you on your way to understanding your move abroad.

Read on to learn more about financial advice, issues of the expat woman, working overseas or overcoming culture shock.
