Expat Angela

Heyy, I'm Angela Carson. At 21 I left uni, jumped into my Jeep Wrangler, and drove from my native California to live an adventure in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Since then, I've explored 32 countries on 4 continents, residing in 7 of them (Kuala Lumpur is currently my home). I was even shot at once by bandits on a mountain road and I have a private pilot's license :-)

TCK mum

I am an Australian born, dual passport owning expatriate; who has lived through 6 postings over 9 years. I have three beautiful children (2 boarding in Australia) and 1 currently living with us in Malaysia. I have one extraordinary rescue dog, that has lived in almost as many countries as we have and I am married to a supportive husband who has given me the opportunity to raise our three children in 2 very different continents in this very unconventional way. In my past life I was an Adult Educator and now I am a trailing spouse. I am hoping that this blog will guide those that are starting out in this strange lifestyle and allow me to pursue my passion for writing in the comfort of my own (airport lounge) home.

Expatriate life after retirement

After 33 years of a truly international life style and raising two daughters, Francien and Frank decided to withdraw from a 24/7 active working life. Frank has enjoyed a rewarding and financial lucrative expatriate working life with a global operating American Petrochemical company with numerous assignments in Europe, USA, Africa and Middle East. Frank and Francien had decided in 2015 to make the big step and embark on an early retirement life (Frank was 57 years of age). They both did not know what that new phase in their life would look like, apart from being nomadic as they wanted to continue an expatriate lifestyle beyond retirement. The purpose of this blog is to share how they find purpose and direction in the next few years, while being in full control of their own time. This blog is NOT about how to become financial independent nor about what place is the best place to retire in. This blog is about a journey to find new meaning and goals in a more mindful lifestyle, opposed to a global corporate working lifestyle driven by frenetic timelines and obligations.
