Welcome to DC Expats. It's about time that Washington, DC had an all-encompassing expat group. Whether you're new to the city, a long-term resident, here for a short period of time, or even if you're a native, this group is for you. The only requirement is a desire to make international friends, explore DC and have fun.

About me: I'm an American who has lived abroad in Italy (Siena) and the Netherlands (Amsterdam) working as an au pair for 2 years. I used to attend expat meetups in Amsterdam and loved it (that's how I met my husband). Coming back to the States, I looked for a group that would allow me to continue to meet and befriend international transplants while here at home. To my surprise, I discovered  that there are no general expat meetup groups in Washington, DC, despite all the internationals here.  So, I started one myself.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
