The definition of "expat" is not as clear-cut as it may first appear—and that becomes, well, very clear in the opening minutes of this episode of Travelogue. What separates, for example, an expat from an immigrant? Is it all about transience versus permanence, or are there other, less straightforward distinctions at play? Whatever the difference, there is a common thread that unites anyone who has lived away from "home," a word that also has its own multiple layers of meaning. This week, we dive deep into what motivates people to settle down, even temporarily, halfway around the world; explore the challenges of joining or creating a community once abroad; and share the unexpected joys that can be found in newness.
