I spent last week in Belgium visiting family. As every expat knows, having to miss your family in your daily life can be hard. Especially since I had my daughter, I feel that it is difficult to uphold close day-to-day family ties.
Starting all over
So I started contemplating what it would be like to move back to Belgium. And then it struck me what a daunting challenge it would be. True, I would be moving back to my home country, where I do know the language, but I would have to start all over – though now not being an expat in a new country, but being a repat in my home country.
