Here’s the weekly round-up with links specifically for travelers, trailing spouses, and stay-at-home moms who are looking to re-enter the traditional work force. Enjoy!
Non-traditional Careers for Expat Spouses- The author is this article is a woman who recently relocated to Brazil for her husband’s job. She discusses her own decision to be a stay-at-home mom, and then explains how she started her new career in Brazil. She offers lots of great tips for expat spouses, and it’s neat to hear her story.
Career Planning Tips for Expat Stay-At-Home Moms- Here’s another detailed post with great advice for Expat stay-at-home moms who are ready to re-enter the workforce. I don’t have any children (and therefore have never been a stay-at-home mom), but I imagine many of these tips are relevant for stay-at-home moms living in their country of origin as well.
The Seoul Subway Challenge- One of my favorite bloggers, Tom, from Waegook-Tom, challenged his fellow South Korea-based bloggers to thoroughly explore one of the subway lines in Seoul. Tom discovered some cool things on line 7, but more importantly, I think those of us living in big cities should try the challenge. You never know what new sites you might discover in your city!
Is Stonehenge the dullest attraction ever?- I often feel let-down by famous landmarks, and Simon, who blogs at Man Vs. World, experienced a similar feeling when he went to Stonehenge. As he points out, Stonehenge makes for great photos, but really, the site raises more questions than it answers, which is frustrating.
5 of the Top Historical Sites in Egypt- I’ve always wanted to go to Egypt, and we almost went in September, but chose Ethiopia instead because it was more affordable. Heather from Heather on Her Travels has been though, and here’s her report on 5 of the top historical sites in Egypt. My favorite is Abu Simbel, which is a place with really amazing carved temples.
