The Expat Partner’s Survival Guide

The Expat Partner’s Survival Guide is a light-hearted yet supportive book which uses the experiences of more than 70 contributors who have been there, done that and survived to tell their tales. Aimed initially just at accompanying spouses, it covers everything from what to pack to how to cope in the event of an emergency. What does it feel like to sit at home alone in a strange country on the first day your partner leaves for work? How easy is it to find the right school for your child – and what happens if your child hates it there? Where exactly are you going to track down all the ingredients needed for tonight’s dinner? And what happens when it all goes very, very wrong? The experts include author Clara Wiggins, who spent her childhood as a ‘trailing daughter’ accompanying her diplomat parents on various exotic postings including the Philippines and Venezuela. She later saw life from the other side, when was posted to Jamaica and then took her young family on her husband’s postings to Islamabad and St Lucia.
