Here at Denizen, we’re thrilled to introduce you to our new project: “You Know You’re A Global Nomad When…”
This is based on a well-known meme in the Third Culture Kid community. But, we wanted to turn it into something that everyone in the Denizen community can contribute to.
So, now we’re inviting you to join us! We would love to hear your voice. Please finish this phrase with a word, a sentence, a photograph, a video, a smile.
“You Know You’re A Global Nomad When…”

Okay, I’m gonna have to go back to my blog post on being an MK and see what ones can apply more generally to being a TCK!! I know I’ve got several!!
Here is my original “You know you’re an MK when…” post…
You know you’re a global nomad when your refrigerator is stocked with a variety of hot chili pepper condiments.
When you have your frequent flier, hotel points and passport numbers memorized, but aren’t sure about your social security number, have five phone numbers for different world regions and have yet to get a drivers license.
