I love listening to Sundae each week. Every episode is an encouragement to live your best expat life, sometimes with new ideas, sometimes with a timely reminder of what you already know. Even when I’m thinking, maybe this episode isn’t really about me this week, her passion and conviction keep me hooked and inspired. An essential for any expat (spouse, especially) who wants to make the most of their opportunities.
