Repatriation or ‘heading home’ after working and living overseas, can be a time of mixed emotions for the expat family. They’re excited to be moving back and reconnecting with family and friends and going back to all that’s familiar. But also sad to be leaving new friendships, interesting experiences and what may have been a charmed and exciting lifestyle.
