The Midweek Mention - Introducing the new Expat Mojo App.

The (lovely) American Resident has been very busy developing an I-Phone app - Expat Mojo Lite. You can see it here.

You can locate the app in the I-Tunes category of Lifestyle. It was inspired by reading forum and blog comments from the tired, worn out, disenchanted expats suffering culture shock, homesickness or just general fed-up-ness. It is meant to help with little nudges: suggestions, tips and reminders all completely controlled by the owner of the phone.

You don’t have to be an expat to use it—you could be anyone feeling a bit meh. Some of the 365 tips are quite inspirational and universally applicable, like this one -

"If you make a mistake, smile and apologise and try again. You'll be forgiven".

Others are more specifically for expats, but can apply to anyone travelling abroad: "When you travel, remember that a foreign country is not designed to make you comfortable. It is designed to make its own people comfortable. (Clifton Fadiman).

Oh,, and it's free. Go take a look and if you like it, leave a review comment on the I-Tunes page.


And finally, a word from Roger Penycate who kindly donated a prize for our first Midweek mention:

"I'd like to thank you all for entering the competition, the winner has been announced and has chosen the London Buses. I would, if you don't mind me taking the liberty, like to remind you that in addition to the GB category on our web site there are several more categories covering 100 subject and themes, ideal gifts for both self-indulgence and for friends, relatives, acquaintanaces etc. If ever you find your hand shaking or your wallet/purse twitching or indeed hear a stange noise from your crdeit card saying 'use me' our web site address
Everything is for sale :0)

Cheers and thanks to Toni and Mike for hosting the competition"
