If moving abroad was easy, everyone would be doing it!
I decided fairly early on that I want to travel a lot in my life and experience living abroad as much as I can. To date, I’ve lived in two different countries, half-lived in a third and travelled to many more. It’s been a phenomenal, inspiring journey of self-development that has opened my mind, broadened my horizons and taught me more about life, loss, love, hardship and perseverance than any education system or self-help podcast could.
On a side note, I’ve also become incredibly good at calculating exchange rates, discerning what street food will probably give me food poisoning and restraining myself from stroking stray cats (well, I’m working on the last one).
Anyone who has lived abroad will agree that doing so is a decision that will change your life and the lives of those nearest and dearest.

Most importantly, if you decide to go, keep this in mind:
I don’t know anyone who regretted moving abroad.
But I do know plenty who regretted staying behind.
