The Backpacker Expats

A great description of meeting expatriates abroad:

What we could all learn from expats

Want to make friends? Move to another country. Maybe somewhere third world.

There you might meet a few of the locals who will eventually enter your social circle, but the most likely event is that you will end up with a large group of some of the best friends you’ve ever had, and they’ll all be fellow expats. This process will take about a week.

Expats, in general, are friendly. They want to meet you, and know your story. They’re fun to be around. They’re people who “do” rather than plan.

Go read the whole thing: The Backpacker Expats.
