HalloweeM 44½: A WeeM-Away
October 30 – November 1, 2020
The Do's and Don't's of Becoming an Expat
In 2012 Viki moved to Amsterdam from Chicago in search of love, family and adventure. Things didn’t turn out exactly how she expected, but it sure has been interesting! This talk will be about the basic process of moving abroad, told from a more long-term perspective of what it’s like to be gone for 8 years, and what I’ve learned along the way that I can pass on to others who are thinking of moving overseas.
Viki used to live in Chicago until she moved to Amsterdam in 2012 to marry a Dutch guy she met at a hacker conference in Berlin. In spite of a bumpy adjustment period to living abroad, they’re still together, have two small children, and Viki still misses Chicago.
