Happy Friday, expat spouse! Time for our weekly round-up of articles I’ve found on the internet. Have a great weekend and I’ll see you on Monday.

Over-tourism causes headaches 

The travel world’s abuzz with the emerging problem of “over-tourism”, especially in popular European hot spots. Recently, Scotland became the latest victim to experience growing pains as visitor numbers continue to rise. (BBC News)

Lonely expats looking for support

Earlier this month a new expat arrived in Germany from Canada in order to start work at my husband’s company. Thankfully, he didn’t make the transition alone and soon his wife will accompany him. As all seasoned expats can attest, going through the journey with a partner doesn’t protect you from occasionally feeling alone. Don’t forget that it’s normal to feel this way and that it won’t last forever. Keep working towards finding new friends and building your support system. And try to bloom where you’re planted!
