Well, I have one passport that says I can be in here and one that doesn't. Technically I am "overseas" . . .depending on how you define you terms.

I'll just go with Interntional Spy and join all the available groups. :)

Me too! Currently living in the USA. Can't see us returning to the UK though. Unfortunately left my horse in the UK and haven't ridden here for 4 yrs now. :(

Fairy, have you taken Italian Citizenship or anything like that? Or did you just move and stay as a Scot?
I moved and stayed a Scot :D No way would I take Italian Citizenship, even the embassy in Rome advised me not to! I do like to have an escape hatch if needed ;)

China checking in!! I'm in Hong Kong, originally from London / Oxon / Berks (not sure what counts as 'originally'!!) and I have horses in Spain...talk about confused (should I mention that my OH is from Denmark and his children are in France...?!).

Anyway, great to see lots of other expats, repats and nonpats in here!! It's been a balmy 27 degrees and clear blue skies in HK today :cool:

I seem to like blue, red and white countries...must branch out and live somwhere with more colour!
Now I have to go and find out what the 2nd flag is, I am not too good on those.

The Canadian flag wouldn't do it for you.

In Australia, do the different States (is that what they are called - it is Provinces here) have different flags as well? Ontarios' is fairly boring.

I'm also a hybrid. Now in South East UK but hail from across the pond (the very small pond to the right of the UK); sweet little place with excellent food :D OK it's Belgium and have rather a lot of Welsh blood

BUT have lived in Minnesota so understand COLD winters and Nassau where it's hot, hot, hot.

Hope to move to Normandy in 5 years times when I stop the rat race.

Can I be here too or is it only for peeps who are O/S right now? :confused:

We are defining "overseas" as "not where you are originally from", I think. Very inclusive, seeing as we are all citizens of the world. :)
