Every once in a while we’ll hear about a friend moving to a different country, whether it’s a family migration or for work. And it’s great when a BFF tells you they got a job someplace else! The experience you get from living and working abroad is priceless.
Maybe you recently got a job offer in another country and you’re seriously considering going. The pay’s better, you enjoy the lifestyle in that place, or it’s just something totally different from what you’re used to and you’re feeling up for the change. There are plenty of reasons why people move away from home.
