My expat life will start soon. My departure to Beijing is now scheduled in 3 months. Time will move really fast and latest days before boarding into the plane will be intense.

In order to forget only few things when I will leave, I try to create a ToDo list and follow their status (done / on-going / to do). Find below the major points that I already write on this list :

  • Find a new job in China : done
  • Leave my current job : on-going
  • Book the plane ticket : done
  • Visa : to do
  • Local health insurance : on going
  • Sort out french paperwork (phone, insurance…) : to do
  • Move house (leave the flat, sold my furniture…) : to do
  • Plan the leaving parties : on going
  • Close my luggage : to do one day before the plane

Like any todo list, it will evolve quickly in the coming days. I will keep you updated on the progress and let you know the status on the departure day.
