It started quite hectic my life here, a rough start. Without any preparation I went and got into quite a hefty car accident. Without any insurance I had to pay up big time and asked my family. First thing I did after recovering was finding a cheap international health insurance, as I was still an expat living here. Important thing was to have one with a professional service.
After the great shock I luckily never got into an accident anymore. Living abroad you will always be seen as the foreigner and you always have to pay double the attention then that you are used to.
