Our Team

Over the course of our 25-year history, our team has been devoted to helping expatriates, digital nomads, and retirees help one another move, live and travel abroad. While the online world has evolved dramatically during this time period, our passion for international experiences continues to grow. We are always in awe of the generosity of our members each time they reach out and lend a helping hand to another digital nomad or someone preparing to make a transition to an international lifestyle. That's what drives our passion to ensure that BlueBurbia and Expat Exchange will continue to be at the forefront of international life for the next 25 years and beyond!
