We Four Expats Travel Afar

Happy Christmas – Here’s a little Expat Christmas Ditty to the tune of We Three Kings….  

 

We four Expats travel afar

Metro, funicular, airplane, car

Veldt and fountain, fynbos and mountain

Always seeking the next bright star

 

Global nomads we wander, eyes alight

Life of adventure and Turkish delight

Potholes and roadblocks

Snakes and electric shocks

Running to catch the next flight

 

 

First we lived in The Centre of Excellence                             

Lagos is chaos, frustration immense                                 

Monsoon and Harmattan, FourOneNine, golden sand                   

Dashing’s a constant expense

 

Oo-oh  nomads we wander, eyes alight

Life of adventure and Turkish delight

Potholes and roadblocks

Snakes and electric shocks

Still running to catch the next flight

 

 

Then two years in famed Istanbul

History and food all part of the pull

Mosque and minaret, Bosphorus very wet

Of baklava we were full

 

Global  nomads we wander, eyes alight

Life of adventure and Turkish delight

Potholes and roadblocks

Snakes and electric shocks

Racing to catch the next flight

 

Now, we Beaches live in S.A.

They say Jo’burg’s dodgy, it’s really okay

City of Gold, vibrant and bold

Sunny almost every day

 

Oo-oh  nomads we wander, eyes alight

Life of adventure and Turkish delight

Potholes and roadblocks

Snakes and electric shocks

It’s a rollercoaster, hold tight

 

Merry Christmas to one and all

Our travels are far and our tales are tall

Expat life, it’s worth the strife

Explore the world, have a ball

 

Don’t know the tune?  Listen to the famous King’s College Choir, Cambridge singing it here.
