These days it’s pretty simple to spin a globe and jet off to wherever your finger lands, which is great. And while traveling is important in itself, living abroad is a wholly different experience – especially when learning to stand on your own two feet. Moving to another country may be the jump start that you need to make other drastic changes in your life. You’ll be somewhere nobody knows you, you’re pretty much a legal alien.
1. Adapting will become normal
When you’ve moved to another country, even temporarily, you’ll notice that your life will never be the same again. You’ll be forces to adjust, and become more adjustable in the process. A great way to become a little bit more carefree.
2. Moving abroad will change your perspective
By living in another land that may have a completely different style of living, political stance and economy, it’ll may become easier to relate to people in other countries, as you now have first hand experiences of the many differences in perspective.
3. Experiencing a new culture, new friends
If you’re grasping at straws with your friend and you’re at a loss, moving to another country where the lifestyle and type of person suits you may be a great idea to form life long friendships.
4. Dating will be totally different
And might be worse than at home. Living abroad can be tough, there are cultural differences, languages barriers and there may even a different definition of sexy, but hey, maybe you’ll love it?
5. Sending hand-written letters will become your hobby
Because it’s always cool to send hand written letters with foreign stamps to your friends back ‘home’. Let alone receiving packages from abroad!
6. Leaning a new language is difficult, but fun
It’s always cool to speak two or more languages, living abroad where few people speak your language will force you to learn a language quickly, you’ll be sure to get a lot of laughs about your language skills in the process.
7. Being at ‘home’ will not feel like home
If you do ever decide to come back ‘home’, you’re guaranteed to always hold a little of your time abroad in your heart – and you’re likely to always consider it a second home you can turn to anytime you like. True enrichment of your life.
