ExpatJoy - Passionate Global Living with Sandra Bissell


ExpatJoy FB Update

Dear ExpatJoy FB Members,
I have some news to share with you!
After a hiatus of posting here, and lots of soul searching about how to best add value to the expat and immigrant communities in which I navigate, I’ve decided to repurpose the two ExpatJoy FB groups to focus on Brazilian women & families living a cross-cultural-international life, in addition to English speaking expatriates interested in living in Brazil.
In order to do so, the ExpatJoy FB group became bilingual and it is going through some changes.
Of course, all members are always WELCOME into our group.
That being said, I realize that with the new focus and changes in place, some of you may feel that your needs won’t be met there.
I apologize for that, and hope you can forgive me.
If you are feeling left out, please let me know how can I help you. You can reach me by leaving a comment below, or simply sending an email to sandra@expatjoy.com.
Fortunately, there are many organizations, FB groups, and Apps that focus on supporting the English-speaking expat community.
I’m starting a resource list so our members can choose accordingly to their needs. After completed, I will add this to our group’s files.
Here are some resources for you:
Facebook groups:
Please comment below what’s your go-to expat resource, so I can add to the document.
Thank you for your understanding and help.
Much love and joy, Sandra

My name is Sandra Bissell.
I have been blessed with the opportunity to live as an expatriate for more than 2 decades.

Some of my passions are people, my family, good conversations, traveling, ethnic food, dancing and Capoeira, an Afro-Brazilian-Martial-Art-Dance.

Originally from the countryside of São Paulo state, in Brazil, I have enjoyed life in Kanagawa and Aichi prefectures, in Japan, Boston and San Diego cities, in the United States, São Paulo, Brazil, as an expatriate in my own country, Zurich – Switzerland and most recently Stamford, Connecticut, back to the United States.

As you may guess, I feel the most comfortable within the international community.
