12 tips for easy expat life in Cyprus

1: Learn the LingoMy main regret about my expat experience is not learning Greek earlier on. It would have made such a big difference to the first few months of my life here in Cyprus.

Top 10 Reasons Why Koreans + Americans + Cypriots = A World of Cultural Fusion

Although my family and I moved back to the States in July, we fondly look back at our time in Cyprus as a major milestone in our lives. My husband completed his book, which was the initial reason why we moved to Cyprus last year. Our older son moved into first grade at a new elementary school.
