“I’m in no doubt that the BE forum has already saved me a fortune in money and time, planning the move out to Malta.” -Bob

“I joined British Expat in the early stages of our application to come to Canada and found the Canada Forum an invaluable resource. Hearing other people’s experiences was reassuring and supportive. I learned a lot about the process of immigrating and the practicalities of living here. Thank you so much for all your hard work.” -Jessica

“I’m a colonial. Born in East Africa, and based there for the first 12 years of my life.

“I spent several years of my working life on foreign assignments. After I retired, I spent 12 years back in Africa – Zambia and Botswana. Now I am settled firmly in France, and intend to stay there for the rest of my days.

“You’d think I had no need for, wouldn’t you? Wrong. I’ve been a regular for so long that I can’t remember when or how I found it.

“Long enough to enjoy reminiscing with old friends. Some people come, make their mark, and then fade away. Others become permanent fixtures. Just like any good community. Give it a try. But don’t whinge.” -Mike
