Expats in Kuala Lumpur

Early 2019 we moved from the Netherlands to Kuala Lumpur. We didn’t think long if we wanted to do this or not. We said yes and would see what was going to happen. In a few months time everything had to be arranged. But where to start if you don’t know the country and have no idea what to expect? This has worked out very well for us and every day we are still happy with the choice we have made. We want to inspire others and help them move abroad. In one year we have learned so much. Not only about the country we had never been to, but also about ourselves!

Be prepared

We can recommend it to everyone to make this step. Even if it’s only for a year! Of course, you should not forget that moving abroad involves a lot. But don’t let this scare you away! When you have everything in order and are prepared for the unknown, it will be really fun! Don’t let resistance stop you, but learn from it and use it to further develop yourself. You can always send me a message for questions or remarks. I am happy to help you!
