6 days, 6 themes, global experts & a unique community

When moving to a new country, at first we are super excited. We look forward to amazing experiences together with our loved ones and to exploring new places.

And then reality hits. Actually living abroad, establishing a daily life in which we thrive and are happy, becomes more of a challenge than we had initially expected.

The Happy Abroad Summit is a go-to resource for international individuals, couples and families, who feel overwhelmed, frustrated and stuck in their life abroad.

We at Be Happy Abroad are beyond excited to offer this free resource now in its third edition. Tune in and learn from global experts sharing their knowledge, tips and tricks on how to create a happy & fulfilled life abroad.

Experiences & success stories
from previous Happy Abroad Summits

“In my opinion the content of the summit was well thought, diverse and great for starting an inner journey.
The diversity of the speakers and of the themes
was amazing and so needed.”

“I’m currently in your happiness abroad seminar…and I just wanted to say thank you sooooo much ❤
I find your energy and presence really healing, and this has helped immensely.”

Day 1: Navigate an international & intercultural life

When moving abroad, everything seems like an adventure at first. But then reality hits, and we realise that this is not the same as a vacation. How do we feel welcome, at home and happy in this new environment, when faced with so many unfamiliar habits and patterns? Maybe we don’t even speak the local language? The amazing contributors on day 1 share their knowledge and tools on how to make the international & intercultural  lifestyle a success for everyone involved.

"There is nothing like the summit"

"I looked in the Internet about this subject a lot, but there is nothing like that. Nobody gives you info in such a complete way and very understandable for anybody. Everything is in one place."

Day 4: Build deeply connected & intimate relationships

Happy and thriving relationships can be a challenge to begin with. Add the turmoil and chaos that comes with moving internationally, and maybe even adding several cultures into most of the relationships in your life – and the challenges multiply. What many of us experience is losing a sense of belonging.
Day 4 is all about how to create and maintain the relationships in your life that you truly desire and that make you feel that you belong.

The summit is not a one-off event.
It will have a lasting effect on your life.

"One of the biggest takeaways was: you don't feel alone. When you look at the stories, and the funny jokes when you first move to a country, and so on...they were unique!"

My name is Franziska and I am the founder of Be Happy Abroad and creator of the Happy Abroad Summit.

After 2 successful rounds in 2020 + 2021, the Happy Abroad Summit now goes into its third round. And both the summit and Be Happy Abroad are growing!

We and Be Happy Abroad know what it means to live abroad and in intercultural relationships. We are very familiar with the joys and challenges that come with it, and create and develop the Happy Abraod Summit based on that awareness.

And one thing we know for sure: we cannot thrive if we feel alone in this adventure, and we do not have to!

Which is why we once again for 2023 have gathered some of the leading global experts on different topics related to thriving in your life abroad. In the Happy Abroad Summit, they are going to share their wisdom with you.
PLUS, you will be part of a big network of like-minded international from all around the world.
