Karin & Michael receive a lot of questions and comments about international travel and living abroad--the expat lifestyle. The links below will answer questions about expatriate health, medical and travel insurance, banking, international finances and the like. We also have pages for those interested in international volunteer opportunities and work from home internet jobs.
These pages are meant to provide information on expatriate life, volunteer work abroad, legitimate online jobs as well as everything else that is outside Greece.
Previously all this information was on one page. The following now have their own pages:
In 2012 I wrote an article about the career benefits of study abroad and international travel: Where is the land of opportunity?
