    Hello fellow Hubbers,

    I'm a newbie and not too sure about forum etiquette so, I thought I would just write a little note to say 'hello'

    Actually, I better say 'Merhaba' as I am writing from Turkey where I have lived since 2005.

    Am also wondering if there are any other expats among you?

    Wishing you all a great day.

    Kym :-)

      Merhaba,hubpages hoşgeldiniz.

      Sorry can't help, I am a native Bangladeshi. My mothers' classmate's brother in law's elder son's teacher's maid's neighbor's cousin's girl friend's paternal uncle is an expat, I don't care though.

    Welcome to Hugpages, Kym! smile

    Yeah, quite a few expats here, including myself. There was a thread about it just a few days ago, can't find it for some reason smile

    Oooops sorry Misha! I'll have a look for the previous thread. Thank you for the welcome also :-) Which country are you in?

    Thanks Frogdroppıng and congrats on the conversion of your hubby. Is he enjoying being his new life as an expat?

      To answer ... he's kinda ok on the whole. He speaks english fluently so that helps. I didn't know a word of Portuguese when I first went over so I reckon that helps. He misses many things but as you'll know - you've got to roll with it and learn to adapt.

      If you want home - you go home *meh* smile

        Yes so true. My Hubby really has no interest in visiting the UK, let alone living in it!  However, for one so opinionated on the subject, he really needs a visit!!

          One of the downsides of joining two countries together by way of matrimony lol!

          We are the same - 'oh we do this so much better in Portugal' ... 'whatever. When you guys learn how to tell the time as good as the English then you can crow matey-bob' lol

      Nothing to be sorry about - if I could not find it knowing it is somewhere here, then you certainly cannot be held responsible for not finding it. smile
      I am from Russia, and for the last 10 years live in the USA.

      Yup, I'm an expat. I'm born South African/German, but London is more my home, and I'm living in the States...
