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 weâ€™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. Weâ€™ve simply quite often been through that very question: Whatâ€™s it like?
Whatâ€™s it like to live in France, to live in Paris? Whatâ€™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. Whatâ€™s all that like? And yes, itâ€™s different in every new place.
Because we also have friends living as expatriates all over the world, we decided to start this project â€žWhatâ€™s it like?â€œ - 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 whoâ€™ll squeeze you into his planner to share a few experiences. Actually, we wanted the interviews to even be better than that call.
