Discussion in a book club regarding the book "The Expats" by Chris Pavone.

X: "What is then an expat? Are we expats?

Y:  "For me expat is somebody who stays in a foreign country with the intention to go back to homeland in few years, like a sent employee."

Y: "Exactly, I don't see myself as an expat either. It's like I am here for good, I speak Dutch, I have a Dutch husband, Dutch children and when I go back to my home country it already feels different. Are we then immigrants? :)"

: to leave one's native country to live elsewhere; also : to renounce allegiance to one's native country
