    Living Abroad in Taiwan with Amazon Prime's "Expats International Ingrams"

    1:15:11

    Meet the Ingrams – a “typical” American family who documented their journey to become expats living abroad in London, Singapore, and Taiwan. Their new reality TV show, “The Expats International Ingrams,” has been streamed more than 2.3 million times on Amazon Prime, but it wasn’t always that way… Series Creator and Producer, Juanita Ingram, sits down with Kristin from her home in Taipei to share her advice (learned the hard way) of overcoming the many challenges of moving to a new country. It took months of “sitting on the couch, eating chips,” before Juanita was able to pull herself out of the “trailing spouse depression” and health challenges she experienced after quitting her job in support her husband’s career move to London. Find out her tips for adapting to a new culture and how to relate with locals while managing the stereotype of being an American abroad. You’ll also learn about the cost-of-living and housing prices in Taiwan, the cost of local healthcare, safety rankings, top things to see and do, and what to expect in Season 2 of The Expats International Ingrams when they head to Singapore. EPISODE 128 TOPICS DISCUSSED: The #1 reason why executive expats and their families don't succeed at living abroad. How an expat BBQ at Windsor Castle inspired Juanita to create a reality TV show about living abroad.  How The Expats International Ingrams is challenging typical expat stereotypes and why African American women and families are under-represented in the media.  How to deal with major life changes like quitting your job and moving to a new country.  How to adjust to life as a foreigner abroad.  How to cope with depression and feeling lost after moving abroad. How Juanita was able to re-invent herself in her career after changing jobs multiple times.  Moving to Singapore during COVID and the surreal situation of filming of Season 2 of their show there.  Life in Taiwan, how the Taiwanese healthcare system works, and the cost of living. Top travel destinations, excursions, and places to get food in Taiwan. QUESTIONS ANSWERED: Who are The Expats International Ingrams? Why create a TV show about living abroad?  What is "trailing spouse syndrome" or depression and how to overcome it?  What was it like to go on Sky News London as an expat to discuss US policy in front of a British audience?  Why does Taiwan rank #1 for the best places to live abroad?  Are locals in Taiwan worried about an invasion from China? What do you wish people from the US knew about living abroad? And much more! RESOURCES Do you want to move abroad in the next year?
