This week I have a little surprise for you, I have teamed up with Little Miss Honey (find her blog here) to create a really fun and entertaining post for you guys!
When we first talked about a collab, I was unsure what to do, as I didn’t want to do something boring that you could find anywhere. I finally decided on an ‘expat would you rather.’ In this post, you will see several ‘would you rather’ questions, directed at expats, answered by both Little Miss Honey and me. I’ll admit, some of these questions were really challenging, but we did our best to answer them all for you. Enjoy!
Would you rather… Never be an expat, or move to a new place every year?
Little Miss Honey: Never be an expat, moving every year can be really stressful especially for my family, so I’d rather stay put.
Little Miss Expat: Never be an expat, I’d have to agree, while being an expat is amazing, it would be hard to pack up and move every year.
Would you rather… Not be able to meet anyone new, or not remember anyone old?
Little Miss Honey: Not being able to meet anyone new, I don’t want people I know to feel bad that I don’t remember them.
Little Miss Expat: Not being able to meet anyone new, I wouldn’t want to forget important people in my life.
Would you rather… Move somewhere really hot, or cold?
Little Miss Honey: Move somewhere really hot, actually I did before, as I lived in Saudi Arabia.
Little Miss Expat: Well I already live in Dubai, which is super hot. But I wouldn’t want to move anywhere very cold, I definitely prefer the heat.
Would you rather… Move somewhere as a student in school, or as an adult with a job?
Little Miss Honey: Move somewhere as a student, I always wanted to study in Canada when I was younger but was never able to do so.
Little Miss Expat: I think as a student, It’s easier to fit in and make new friends when you see them every day at school. And I think that moving is easier when you’re younger as you can adapt more.
Would you rather… Move to a city or a rural area?
Little Miss Honey: Definitely a city, I am a true-blue city girl.
Little Miss Expat: I would love to live in a rural area, but I don’t think I could do it forever. So I would go for the city, as there’s always something to do there.
Would you rather… Be an expat as a kid or an adult?
Little Miss Honey: Either way is fine by me.
Little Miss Expat: That’s a hard one, I feel like as an adult I would be able to do things my way, but I think I would move as a kid because I would have my family and parents to support me and help me out.
Would you rather… Be an expat in an English speaking country or a non-English speaking country?
Little Miss Honey: I would love to fantasize about living in a non-English speaking country but truthfully it would be better to move to an English speaking country.
Little Miss Expat: It would definitely be easier to move to an English speaking country, as I would find it too confusing to learn a new language, and have that barrier.
Would you rather… Not be able to talk to anyone you meet, or hear anything they say?
Little Miss Honey: The first one.
Little Miss Expat: I think the first one, at least I could work around it. I wouldn’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings, by not listening to what they say.
Would you rather… Not be able to make new friends, or see any old ones?
Little Miss Honey: Definitely the first one.
Little Miss Expat: That’s really hard, but the first choice. I wouldn’t want to forget my old friends, even though it would be hard not to have any new ones.
Would you rather… Not be able to experience the culture of your new home, or completely forget the culture of your last home?
Little Miss Honey: The latter, always look back to where you came from.
Little Miss Expat: I’d agree, I wouldn’t want to forget my culture, but it would still be hard to live somewhere and not experience any of the culture.
I hope you guys enjoyed this kind of post, let me know if you want to see more like this! It was just a little bit of fun, be sure to let me know your answers to the questions in the comments.
