Place or character?

Those of us who have lived outside our home country will probably know that some expats adjust well to wherever they live, and others will have endless complaints. So why is this? I am a firm believer that the character of the individual determines whether he/she will adjust well to a new environment, or will join the chorus of those who complain about every single detail of their new life.

I was reminded of this today when I read the following on

After 7years of being part of every debate under the sun re: merits of Singapore, Australia, UK, USA, Europe our summary is: each location has tonnes of great things and not so great! Enjoy what's good and if that's all you have to worry about, things ain't that bad! End of sermon!!

I couldn't agree more!
