Welcome to life abroad!
Moving overseas is one of the biggest life decisions you would have ever made. Traveling to other destinations, whether it is short or long term, is one matter but to move there for an extensive period of time is quite different altogether. It’s not just about what to do and see, and where to eat, but you also need to think about the monthly rent, potential job opportunities, safety, and the weather.
Just before my move to Vancouver in 2012, I had mixed feelings. Like most people who move abroad, I wasn’t sure if I would be able to adapt well to the culture and weather, and meet the right people. Although the move there hasn’t been easy, I decided to tough it out and didn’t look back!
That said, whether you’re moving as an expatriate, student or a working holiday maker, you’ll find essential tips and stories on relocating abroad (including interviews with people who have experienced it themselves)!
