Families Abroad is a facebook group turned community of parents and parents-to-be who are living outside of their home country or are planning to make a move. This group is intended as a great resource for meeting like minded parents, learning about destinations worldwide, discussing vacation opportunities (including home shares and swaps), flights, airlines and everything that concerns families living abroad. To join us, simply click the link below.
We also offer occasional discounts for parent, family and kid-friendly products and services related to travel and life abroad. It is a wonderful resource, providing both advice about new places to move and what to expect when migrating to a new country. It is a place where you can safely acquire answers about child, parent and family related information that comes from a global perspective. This can include everything from online resources for sleep consultants or child services, job opportunities, healthcare and global insurance questions or even passport and travel issues for people from the same country as you. Nitty gritty truths about the places that you live or places that you have visited are also welcome WHEN answering requests for information.
