Two Passports

12 years ago

For those looking to move abroad, the internet serves as a wonderful source of information and data for people looking to expatriate themselves. Yet for all the solutions to cutting through red tape, the internet features a surprising dearth of narrative stories by those who have made the leap to live abroad. Enter Two Passports. Created in 2009 by John F. O’Sullivan, Two Passports serves as a place for people to share their stories, because moving abroad can be awfully intimidating. It's nice to know you are not alone.
