ABOUT: What's it like TV
We are Ariane & Stefan from Germany & Switzerland, and we both have an extensive history of living an expat life abroad, counting 9 countries where we’ve lived, worked and studied 2 months or more between us, and around 50 that we have travelled to. We know the struggle & the thrill of making a new place home; how it can be overwhelming at times, and that there are things that make life easier - if you know them upfront. We’ve simply quite often been through that very question: What’s it like?
What’s it like to live in France, to live in Paris? What’s it like to live in Beijing, or Cape Town, or HongKong? Making friends there, finding a job & working with local colleagues, moving into a new place, discovering the city & the country. Getting a visa & work permit, having all the administrative parts set up, and learning about the health system, and safety & security. What’s all that like? And yes, it’s different in every new place.
Because we also have friends living as expatriates all over the world, we decided to start this project „What’s it like?“ - Meeting people to ask them to share their experiences, so that others who are still pondering a decision can make that decision in a more informed way. Our idea was that these interviews will replace those calls to a friend of a friend of a friend who’ll squeeze you into his planner to share a few experiences. Actually, we wanted the interviews to even be better than that call.
