I Live In a Foreign Country

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 36 People

    I left the US two years ago.

    Always Have, Always Will (possibly?)

    I have never actually lived in a country which I was a citizen of. I have no idea which country I will live in the future. I am a bit of a nomad, actually, lol.
