Hi, I’m Eleonora. Previously a French-English /German-French translator, with a couple of years in the Broadcast Media and Marketing business. I started this website to help anyone going through the process of expatriation. Leaving your home country and settle in a new one sounds glamorous yet until you experience it you don’t realize all the challenges that come along the way. Always remember that at the end, your experience will be rewarding and so worth it! This website is about transitions and learning.
