Enter these enchanted woods,
You who dare.
I will be there as soon as i finshed my blog.
I really , really , and more really hate the term EX-PAT !!!!!!!!!!!! Why do "THEY" insiste on calling us that just because we live outside the borders of our Motherland ? Did we STOP being patriotic just because we reside abroad ? How incrediably odiotic is that ??????????? How insulting , also .I never surrendered my right to be a patriot .Did you ?
Hey, being an "expatriate" is not the same than being an "ex-patriot" ;)You should check wikipedia's definition (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Expatriates) you'll realize there's no insult in the term ...
"Inscriptions are closed at the momentThe expat blog directory is under maintenance. Thanks for your comprehension"I'll log in next time. Me neither I don't see anything wrong in a term saying that you live outside your homeland...
An expatriate (in abbreviated form expat) is someone temporarily or permanently in a country and culture other than that of their upbringing and/or legal residence. The word comes for the Latin ex (out of) and patria (country), and is sometimes misspelt as ex-patriot, due to its pronunciation.
