who is an EXPAT?

I have decided that to start this new BLOG dedicated to expats and expats' life I shall first of all give a definition of what or better who is an expat, which kind of criteria are used to define someone as an expat. From tresaurus dictionary an expat (short for expatriate) is ''a person who is voluntarily absent from home or country''
....and what is the difference between expat and emigrant? and again what kind of meaning shall we give to ''voluntarily''? I will look into all the different aspects that create a person an expat, the benefits and difficulties that being away from home country can mean.

If interested and have topics and questions to ask me please write your comment and I will be happy to write about them.

Hi all, it is time to change so with a new look I am here to introduce you the new life of this blog. As an expat I am now ready to move onto a new adventure and will soon leave Russia but I liked writing articles, looking around for things to do and useful information so I have decided to keep the blog and just give it a different spin. My focus will be to keep in mind all the people who live like expats somewhere in the world and post news, announcements, info that could be useful for them.

Hope you will enjoy it, I will :)
