Expat Life

ADVICE FOR EXPAT LIFE

We left the UK in 2006 to travel, and decided that we liked the lifestyle abroad and become expats, teaching English. We first lived in Thailand, then Spain, Vietnam, China and Ukraine. During this time, we’ve picked up various hints and tips about expat life abroad generally, and in the places we’ve lived, that we can pass on to you.

EXPAT LIFE IN UKRAINE

We have lived and taught English in both Odessa and Kyiv in Ukraine, and so will give our insights into expat life in Ukraine, including tips and cost of living. Obviously, all of this does depend on the lifestyle you lead, and we aren’t big spenders by any means, but it should give you some insight into being an expat in Ukraine.
