Kylie Bevan: Happy and healthy wherever she is
April 8, 2015 | Podcast, with kids
Longtime traveler and expat Kylie has relocated more than 15 times. Wanting to build more international experiences into their lives, her family jumped at the opportunity to move to Tonga in the South Pacific. Kylie, her husband, and their two school-age daughters have been enjoying life there for nearly a year, and are excited to see where their next adventure will take them.
Most Memorable Location-Independent Experiences
Since bringing two daughters into the world, my husband and I have become a team, with me kicking and screaming in discovering that he is best positioned to bring in the money, while I am best suited to family duties (social plans, school involvement, food prep, shopping)—not quite matching my Type A personality, but allowing me a career change into health and wellness.
When he was offered a new role overseas in April 2014, it was an opportunity for me to make my health coaching business a location-independent one. Having relocated more than 15 times, across Australia, Canada, UK, Papua New Guinea and Tonga, I discovered with the recent move that it doesn’t come easily for many. So I wrote a book to help those moving do so in a confident, capable, healthy way, called Your Relocation Solution: Be Healthy and Happy Wherever You Are.
Now I have the privilege of being involved in lifestyle transformations around the world, while I sit in my fale in Tonga, with views of the ocean, our adopted dogs at the door, and the wonderful knowledge that many more locations await.
Biggest Surprise along the Way
I expect too much of internet connectivity in developing countries.
Children are often more resilient than their parents.
