Be Open-Minded!

“…remember that you made the decision to move to a new country not just for the financial benefits, but also for the lifestyle!  New culture and customs are things that take time to adjust to.  Try not to judge, and allow yourself to absorb and take in your new surroundings.”

Do you agree?  Have you lived abroad, or are living abroad already?  Share your tips in the comments section!

  1. When we lived in Colombia, the friends with whom we lived were most helpful in helping us negotiate frustrating differences. Some, they would say, “That’s just the way we are. Here’s the equivalent of how your people are.” Other times they would say, “Yes, that frustrates us, too. That’s not necessarily a universal part of our culture.” We learned Spanish by our friend teaching us Greek. The Greek didn’t stick, but the Spanish did!

    Thank you for visiting the Norwegian Artist and Liking Chimu.
