What It’s Like to Be a Brazilian Expat Abroad 

An estimated 1.5 million Brazilian citizens live abroad. A majority of them decide to begin their new lives in the United States, but countries across Europe and Asia are also popular. From festivals to football, food to free-time activities, there are a lot of differences between life in Brazil and in other countries across the globe. But what does taking the step and moving abroad really feel like?

Wherever you move to in the world, it’s common to feel a mix of emotions as you set out on your expat adventure. It’s common to feel a mixture of excitement about discovering a new culture and way of life, and a sense of homesickness at the same time. You’ll most likely bond with other Brazilian expats over the things you miss from home — whether it be family traditions, the samba, or the beach. As you embrace your new life and surroundings, spending time with people who remind you of home can be a great way to stay positive.
