As this month we’re celebrating our first whole year in Australia, I’m turning my attention to some freelance writing projects about the subject of emigration. I thought I’d use this post to ask you a question: have you ever thought about moving abroad? Whether to move as a family, work abroad as a couple, travel long term or even teach English abroad?
If you’ve ever thought about doing it (even if you didn’t really have the intention of following it through), what were the road blocks that halted you? Was there one big thought that scared you?
If you’ve already made the move, I’d love to hear what parts of the process you found the most difficult? Is there anything in particular you would have liked some more help and support with?
If you’re in the process of making the move – as I know some of you are because you send me lovely emails after seeing my column in Australia and New Zealand magazine – what parts have been the most difficult and what bits are you dreading?
I love being able to help people through the articles I write, and this information will be really valuable to me as it will help me put together resources that can hopefully take some of the stress out of the big move.
Please leave your thoughts in the comments below, and if you know anybody else that has moved abroad (to any country) or is hoping to then please share the link with them. I’m not going to quote anybody in any articles – this information is just to help me out with planning some future projects and is just for my own interest. You know, because I’m nosy like that 🙂
Thanks very much for your help! And if you’re interested in reading more about the process of moving to Australia, you can check out the link to all of the blog posts about our migration journey.
PS If you are thinking of moving abroad or are in the process and want to talk to somebody that has been through it, please drop me a line as I’d love to link up and chat. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org or hunt me down on social media (where I spend waaaay too much time) and say hi Instagram, Facebook or Twitter
