How Can I Set Myself Up For a New Career Abroad?

Relocating is such a personal decision since everyone’s situation is so different, what’s right for one person could be wrong for the next. As a general rule, being younger and unmarried without any children will make things easier as you have fewer ties to a place- whereas later on in life you’re committed to other people who can make things more difficult. However, that’s not to say you can’t still relocate if you have a family, providing it’s something your partner is on board with it could be an exciting new chapter for you all. We live on an enormous planet, and staying in one place your whole life means you’re only ever experiencing such a small part of it.

8 Awesome Things All Millennials Need On Their Bucket List

It doesn’t matter how old you are, you have goals. Ask any four-year-old what three wishes they would have and they’ll list them for you. Ask a pensioner what wishes they would have, and they’d have some for you, too. Goals are what get us from one good picture to the next, and as we age our wishes turn into real, bucket list items.
