Deciding to expatriate is a big deal, and there are a lot of decisions and responsibilities that go far beyond just the choice to move to another country. I am currently an American working toward my goal of moving, emigrating–and expatriating–from the United States to Norway at the end of 2017. I intend to move as a job-seeking skilled worker, which is a tough class to be in because jobs aren’t necessarily easy to come by (likely less so for those of us who are not native).

This blog will showcase the many trials, tribulations, and triumphs of my journey on this path I’ve chosen. There is also a section with links to resources for language learning help, Bergenstest information, and immigration information; I will include other things as I go along.
