How many countries have you lived in? What did you learn from your experiences?
Personally I've only lived in England (where I'm from) and Germany. What I learned, besides improving my knowledge of Germany and the German language, is that while we may have some small differences, when it comes down to it we really are all pretty much the same!
America and China. I've learned how to cook a few Chinese dishes, how to cuss in Mandarin Chinese and a few other basics. I've also learned that there is no corner of the globe that you can go to where stupid people haven't already set up camp... hence learning how to cuss in Chinese. I would be remis if I did not say that there are some incredibly awesome people here you just have to weed them out from the crowd and learn to recognise them when you meet them.
I've lived in Scotland - where I learned to laugh, Italy - where I learned to eat, Romania - where I learned to save, and Canada - where I learned to work.
I have lived in Dubai, British Guyana, Ethiopia, Tanzania and Nepal and I have learned not a lot because I didn't appreciate it as a boy. Having said that it has still opened up my mind to travelling and the possibilities of being able to live anywhere.
after living in quite a few countries in different parts of the world, the best thing I've learnt is that what seems to be good for one country would not necessarily work for another country.
I have been in China for the last 23 years. I want to travel around the world later.
I have never been to any country nor lived there. I remain living in my native land and learned to love what it has been offering me, as a person, as a professional. I have always believed that life grills on and as it does, it carries many challenges that make me learn important things to my existence. The kind of perception and response I have for all these challenges makes me stronger and hopeful. Anything that makes me learn lessons, I welcome them with open mind, heart and hand so that I no longer see and feel its pains, but the glory of being refined into the person that I am now. Life takes us on the rough edges to smoothen them or smoothen us. Both ways are true, they are life's essence.
My family has moved from Croatia long way back and settled in Slovakia, where I was born but then I moved on to live in Czech Republic, Romania, Russia and Australia...by absorbing each new language and culture I have become enriched beyond any possibility....I am still the same, a person who doesn't believe in borders, national supremacy or one nationality...we are all people, at the end we are all the same....
I have lived in both Malaysia (where I was born) and SIngapore. In Malaysia, I lived in a smaller city where the pace is slower so when I moved to Singapore, I learned to multi-task, speed walk and also picked up more Hokkien words

So how may countries have you lived and worked in, and which were they? How did you handle the language barrier? Which countries were they? How many have you visited for a vacation (or business)? Military not counted because you stay in camp and that's an American environment, plus you're staying...
